[1802.02652] Partisan: Enabling Cloud-Scale Erlang Applications
Partisan: Enabling Cloud-Scale Erlang Applications

Christopher Meiklejohn, Heather Miller
(Submitted on 7 Feb 2018)
In this work, we present an alternative distribution layer for Erlang, named Partisan. Partisan is a topology-agnostic distributed programming model and distribution layer that supports several network topologies for different application scenarios: full mesh, peer-to-peer, client-server, and publish-subscribe. Partisan allows application developers to specify the network topology at runtime, rather than encoding topology-specific concerns into application code. Partisan additionally adds support for more channels, enabling users to distribute messages over multiple channels, sometimes in parallel.
We implement and evaluate Partisan in the Erlang programming language and use it in the evaluation of three scenarios. The first scenario compares the raw performance between Distributed Erlang and Partisan, and shows that Partisan performs on par with or better than Distributed Erlang. The second scenario demonstrates that distributing traffic over multiple connections enables Partisan to perform up to 18x better under normal conditions, and up to 30x better in situations with network congestion and high concurrency. The third scenario demonstrates, using existing applications, that configuring the topology at runtime allows applications to perform up to 13.5x better or scale to clusters of thousands of nodes over the general-purpose runtime distribution layer.

Works Cited: Wasting time on the internet: a syllabus
What I Did For Love: Taste, Evaluation, and Aesthetics in American Culture

“I don’t know art, but I know what I like,” goes the disclaimer. In this writing-intensive part-workshop, part-seminar, we will seek to unpack the relationship between “art” and “what I like” by examining a variety of cultural objects together with accounts of “taste.” What are the uses of an art that nobody likes? Could “annoyance” be an aesthetic principle? What is the role of money in taste? What are the ethics of aesthetics? Under what circumstances is an aesthetic pleasure “guilty”? When should the appreciation of art works be a matter of disinterested judgment, and when a matter of passionate engagement? Does “love” blind? What is the difference between a “fan” and a “critic”? What are the affordances and limits of the “formulaic” and the “generic”?

Four weeks of this course will be devoted to workshopping students’ critical writing, examining the roles of description, praise, blame, analysis, and enthusiasm in writing about culture. Students will also maintain a course blog. For the final assignment, students are encouraged to pitch their writing to an appropriately chosen publication.

"Severus Snape's loyalty has always been to Harry, not to Dumbledore or the Order. When he finds out that Harry is a horcrux and Dumbledore intends to have him killed, Severus goes to the Dark Lord with the information in an effort to save Harry's life, and in doing so changes the fate of the world."
