A Low Latency History Lesson

I’m in the green and pleasant land, aka England, trying to partake in some R&R. But I can’t escape work, even when I am in historic Stratford-upon-Avon, birthplace and later home of William Shakespeare. It seems the Bard knew a thing or two about low latency, or at least about leveraging it.

Indeed, “Make use of time, let not advantage slip,” is a line from Shakespeare’s (rather erotic) 1593 poem Venus and Adonis. And this advice would hold up well today among those building low latency systems, especially those driving algorithmic trading and direct market access applications.

The moral of the story: Be prepared to learn from the past. And also, I guess I just wanted to say that even though I am on vacation, I am still tracking the world of low latency.

Until next time … here’s some good music.
