Twitter / selenamarie: We are in DESPERATE need of ...
We are in DESPERATE need of a whole new way of thinking about "accounts". Current system is utterly, painfully, fundamentally wrong.

Interesting discussion of where account management/profile systems have gone wrong...

Stephen Wolfram’s new programming language: Can he make the world computable?
The intellectual dishonesty in the presentation of the Wolfram Language, whether intentional or unintentional, disturbs me, as I’m sure it does many other computer science professionals. There is little that is genuinely new or different in Wolfram as compared to, for example, the Urbit language project, which aims to allow for integrated ad-hoc networks of computation across arbitrary numbers of machines and devices, big and small. To be sure, Urbit is perplexing—the intended use case seems to be for some postapocalyptic libertarian wasteland. But it’s far more visionary than Wolfram’s rehashed snake oil. Computer scientists should police his claims vigilantly in the public sphere. Otherwise, we will all look bad.

Prettt-tty, pretty, pretty good!: The future of programming
What will programming look like 10 or even 20 years from now? With another new year almost here, now is the time to wax philosophical about the future of our industry. We are on the cusp of a number of major transformations in programming that will make 2011 programming technology, techniques, and ideas seem primitive by comparison. The transformations will occur in several key areas: tooling and infrastructure, languages and type systems, and runtime systems.
