Personal failure of the week, the quarter?

So when coding the prototype for saving the images locally, I started to surface a lot of dependencies, constraints and I start to think that the initial idea was probably better, aka sending the images to S3. I'm not yet 100% confident about it. Both solutions seem simple on paper in principles, but a lot of small subtleties come into play.

I should have started to produce code before, but I wanted to explore the topic before hand. I'm still trying in the remaining 3 weeks. And we will see how far I go.

One part of the issue was probably my lack of knowledge of Amazon S3. When working on a project, there is a cultural part which is difficult to assess at first. Basically we need to learn. I wish there was an easier way to test these services. I will probably try moto as a standalone server.


Contract For The Web

Mozilla and the contract for the Web. I have basically the same position than Mozilla on this. I completely adhere to the contract, but I will not sign it.

a written or spoken agreement, especially one concerning employment, sales, or tenancy, that is intended to be enforceable by law

The issue here is that some of the signatories are currently not credible at all. Facebook, Twitter, Google, etc. That would be different if there was a plan laid out by each of these companies how they would plan to enforce this contract for the Web.
