I’m reading REST API Design Rulebook. On page 12 the author says “two different URIs map to two different resources”, but that’s wrong, many URIs can refer to the same resource, with and without respect to time.
As I was complaining about it I thought I’d try and find some examples of their hypocrisy. I’m fairly sure I’ve seen articles before where people said their job for a Google interview was to process gigabytes of web logs. If you’re data-mining web logs to *spy* on people on the one hand and then telling people you’re protecting their privacy on the other hand then you’re a lying sack of shit really, aren’t you?
Anyway, I didn’t find what I was looking for in a big hurry and I don’t really have time for this, so I’m giving up on my little fact finding mission and just going back to ignoring the whole thing.
However, during my web search I found this article, My Job Interview at Google, which seems like a fairly content rich article. I’m particularly interested in the resources that the guy linked to in his post. So figured I’d swing by my blog and make a note so that when I have some free time (hey, could happen) I can go over that post and read the reference material.
