  Parallel Javascript


Lately the ideas for a parallel, shared memory JavaScript have begun to take shape. I’ve been discussing with various JavaScript luminaries and it seems like a design is starting to emerge. This post serves as a documentation of the basic ideas; I’m sure the details will change as we go along. User Model The model is that a JavaScript worker (the “parent”) may spawn a number of child tasks (the “children”). The parent is suspended while the children execute, meaning that it will...

  Programming Language Readability


Lets compare some Python to Haskell for solving the same problem.  The problem we’ll pick is Trie data-structure for auto-completions.  We are interested not so much in the nitty gritty of the algorithm, but in the language style itself.  Auto-complete has been in the programming news a lot recently; both a Python and a Haskell solver have turned up. (I suspect this post got flagged on Hacker News :(  It never got on the front-page despite the rapid upvoting on a no-new...

  World of Father of Ruby


"I am Yukihiro Matsumoto, I believe keyboard can change the world" is a video about Father of Ruby -- Yukihiro Matsumoto. This video introduces us a father, a husband rather than a programmer. Yukihiro Matsumoto shared his understanding about programming in this video. Computer is not quite smart, it cannot understand human languages, so if we want computers to complete jobs we assign to them, then we need something both human beings and computers can understand. That's why we have program...

  The Wrong Inequality


We live in a polarizing society, so perhaps it’s inevitable that our experience of inequality should be polarized, too.In the first place, there is what you might call Blue Inequality. This is the kind experienced in New York City, Los Angeles, Boston, San Francisco, Seattle, Dallas, Houston and the District of Columbia. In these places, you see the top 1 percent of earners zooming upward, amassing more income and wealth. The economists Jon Bakija, Adam Cole and Bradley Heim have done the most...
