APL Array Language family in 2011 – Predictions

Happy New Year Everyone!

After a brief hiatus, we’re jumping back on the air.

As my emergence into the new year coincides with my first big cold of the season, I’m extra grateful and to have spent the last couple of days under the covers with my new book, fellow Canadian Dan Gardner’s Future Babble: Why Expert Predictions Fail – and Why We Believe Them Anyway. A true gift.

“The fox knows many things, but the hedgehog knows one big thing.” (p. 27)

I’ve decided to try on my Hedgehog hat and will make some predictions for the new year.

Temperamentally, I’m more of a Fox, but the research highlighted in the book indicates Hedgehogs get more air time, so I’ll attempt to emulate one.  I hope you can appreciate the irony.

The Predictions

  1. Opportunity for terse, powerful array based languages continues in 2011.
  2. A small number of individuals will achieve unprecedented commercial success.
  3. Major parallel processing problems will be solved and become passé.

It’s nice to be back.  I’m looking forward to another year on this grand film making adventure.
