Enter an address, find out how walkable it is
Before heading out to lunch today, we're looking up our office address on a newly launched site, Walk Score to see if there's anywhere nearby to eat that we've missed. Walk Score shows you a map of what's nearby and calculates a Walk Score for any property, in our case the Linux Journal office:
Our office gets a Walk Score of 72 -- considering we're in the very walkable city of Houston, Texas, ahem, I'll be happy with that score.
At least we don't work at Microsoft. They have a Walk Score of only 32.
And no, we didn't find any new restaurants. But we did manage to kill the last 15 minutes playing with this new site.

With all the industry talk about the benefits of Linux on Power and all the performance advantages offered by its open architecture, you may be considering a move in that direction. If you are thinking about analytics, big data and cloud computing, you would be right to evaluate Power. The idea of using commodity x86 hardware and replacing it every three years is an outdated cost model. It doesn’t consider the total cost of ownership, and it doesn’t consider the advantage of real processing power, high-availability and multithreading like a demon.
This ebook takes a look at some of the practical applications of the Linux on Power platform and ways you might bring all the performance power of this open architecture to bear for your organization. There are no smoke and mirrors here—just hard, cold, empirical evidence provided by independent sources. I also consider some innovative ways Linux on Power will be used in the future.Get the Guide
