“Introducing Rafiki” by Adrian Hope-Bailie

Recommended Posts

Idk if Adrian Hope-Bailie follows this thread, but if so, check out the "meditating raffiki" clothing on Electrothreads.com.  I have a pair of the shorts by the artist Laura McGowan, and I absolutely love them - and apparently, so do a lot of others as I'm constantly receiving compliments on them.

@KarmaCoverage how would you describe the advantages to this?  I am IT/network ignorant but gathered they have separated the business & routing processing more , presumably with potential to speed things up.  Is this in the ballpark?  Thanks.

Im not an IT guy either, someone correct me if I'm off on any details, but I'd say this is a significant improvement. 

This looks like a scaliablity improvement for a Connector's process in handling Peer connection, like adding the ability to make dynamic changes per peer. They made the whole thing more modular which is probably a good design decision long term, and I guess it makes it easier for a Connector to deploy in a cloud environment and scale the hardware needs as transaction flow grows. Settlement has also been "modurlarized" or decoupled from the in/out ILP packet switching, which should enable faster packet switching, and makes the Settlement process agnostic to method or ledger where settlement can happen between peers.

And there's this, about my speed:

The modularity is great.  This is one of the things I am watching wrt Coil integrations, ie, that they're careful not to integrate too tightly into any particular usecase or platform (such that they can't sort of strip out the monetization DNA and then replicate it for splicing onto other usecases/platforms).  To me, this is sort of the same thing, but for ILP.

It's the same kind of thinking that I've seen from these guys many times;  eg, Cobalt was sort of "let's split and 'modularize' processing/governance" - these are just "tricks", in abstract, but the design thinking around "let's break things down into their constituent components and/or into their constituent functions" really pays off beyond just sort of "optimization tricks" to make this or that thing/function "faster";  there's sort of a Lego feel to it all, where, when you've got all these cool parts that one can then use (and recombine in different ways) who knows what may evolve out of it in future?

(Build it.  Take it apart.  Build it again, but better.  --- Where have I heard that, most recently?  Wietse Wind?  Maybe!)

Anyway, I dig it.  :music:
