I’m off to Hot Docs, Toronto’s infamous Documentary Film Festival and Industry Schmooze Event. It’s time to polish up my light saber and kick-ass shoes.
And then fixing this blog so that you can follow my twitter posts from here…
Oh! While I don’t want to jinx my exam results, I can say that my mark going in was high enough that I only needed a 60% to achieve a qualifying over-all grade. If I didn’t manage that, I’ll be making some serious revisions to my game plan later this summer.
One aspect of reactive demand programming that sets it apart from other reactive programming models is its support for optimistically working with the predicted future states of signals.Think about a signal that carries the current time in seconds, that you want to display on screen as a clock. The screen should update close to the […]
Just had a nice insight regarding systems that deal with reactively updating (potentially large, structured) values such as RDP:The dynamic output of a process is indistinguishable from a static storage resource (file).In batch systems like Unix, this symmetry is not so deep: the output stream of a process looks somewhat like a file, but the process […]
What if you want to use a big value, like a whole database table or weblog, as a Reactive Demand Programming signal value? This would make it possible to use RDP to orchestrate things like incremental MapReduce pipelines. Here's one weird trick to make it work.In effect, each RDP signal becomes a RESTful server, speaking an HTTP-like […]
Today (assuming I write this post quickly enough, Greenwich Mean Time) is the one-year anniversary of the publication of The Thrilling Adventures of Lovelace and Babbage. So it is extra-gobsmackingly amazing to be able to announce that is has been nominated for two Eisner Awards: Best New Graphic Album and Best Writer/Artist. It’s fairly obvious…
It’s Ada Lovelace’s 200th birthday! I’ve spent the last couple of days at the truly extraordinary concatenation of gigantic intellects, Byron scholars and mathematics professors, computer scientists and composers, that was the Oxford Ada Lovelace Symposium. A fuller report to come when I’ve recovered from all the emotions and the Balliol dinner but you can…
