Conventional ﬁle systems are optimzed for large ﬁle transfers instead of workloads that are dominated by metadata and small ﬁle accesses. This paper examines using techniques adopated from NoSQL databases to manage ﬁle system metadata and small ﬁles, which feature high rate of changes and efﬁcient out-of-core data representation. A FUSE ﬁle system prototype was built by storing ﬁle system metadata and small ﬁles into a modern key-value store LevelDB. We demonstrate that such techniques can improve the performance of modern local ﬁle systems in Linux as much as an order of magnitude for workloads dominated by metadata and tiny ﬁles.

Spotify System Owner & Software Engineer, iOS 2009 Writing the world’s ﬁrst Spotify client for iOS (Spot) convinced Spotify to hire me. I took over their iOS and Mac clients, maintaining them for a few years, slowly switching focus to iOS only. My greatest accomplishment during this period has been helping design and leading development of Spotify’s iPad app, focusing on making its navigation effortless and its UI delicious. 2009 Blekinge Institute of Technology ^ Project Assistant 2007 Project assistant at BTH’s research labs.

I can’t write a game without making it networked. I will experiment and try to ﬁnd unorthodox solutions, with the endgoal always being succinctness (which means not only ‘brief’, but also ‘easilly understandable’). I have too many open source and Github projects to enumerate, but a few interesting ones (in roughly chronological order, newest ﬁrst): • SPAsync: Some experimental async primitives for ObjC, with much inspiration from C .
Business Situation and Campaign Objectives Background and Business Objectives Within the African-American consumer market (AACM), the midsize passenger car segment is a fierce battleground. This category includes the best-selling Toyota Camry as well as two wellknown rivals – Nissan Altima and Honda Accord. The launch of the redesigned 2007 Camry was seen as an opportunity to steal share from the competition but the buyers Toyota hoped to steal did not see a reason to test drive the new Camry. Before even seeing it, African American buyers who were interested in Altima and Accord had stereotyped Camry as a “boring car for boring people”. The challenge was to convey that the new Camry was the opposite of “boring”; to position Camry as just as surprising and unexpected as the buyers themselves. Marketing Strategy The marketing objectives were to: Generate awareness for the Camry’s styling and technological advancements. Change perceptions of Camry among African-Americans intending to buy competitive brands (“conquest intenders”) by delivering a surprising experience that would cause the target to reconsider Camry (Increase consideration). Budget The total budget for the assignment (“If Looks Could Kill” campaign) was approximately $2-5 million, spread out over media, production and promotion/PR.

The Microsoft Xbox 360 is a stunning example of globalization and Globalization; the processes of both global interconnections (through production and access to the video game console) and also through the use of Globalization as a political buzz word (to generate an image of the Xbox 360 as the brand connecting users worldwide) (Sparke 2005a, 3). These two definitions of globalization; as a physical process of interconnections and as a political buzz word, can aid in understanding the systems at work when examining how Xbox is attempting to go 360. Microsoft’s Xbox as a technology can be seen as a computer with access to very specific content; all that is needed is the video game console and a connection to broadband Internet. When considering the qualifications to gain access to the Xbox 360 ‘experience,’ one must consider how to get an Internet connection and to the Xbox 360 console. While most citizens in the Xbox 360’s major markets, US, EU and Japan, may not consider these systems hard to obtain, many millions of people globally do not have the luxury of high-speed access to the Internet and the Xbox 360 console. Through understanding the impacts of creating a virtual community based on access to technology, which Microsoft states it hopes to do with the new Xbox 360 console, the inequality of the situation starts to be clarified. Introduction to Microsoft as a Global Company Microsoft is a well-known company in the computer software industry. It continues to expand to new...
