It's not me in this video, but I did play the lead part (bonang) in this piece at Cornell in about 1993, on stage, to an audience.
sort of odd, I don't hear a drum or kempul or gong in this performance - this is a very small group.

Down with the type-cult!
This paper, from 1929, is quite stupid since it sets up a straw man - it misses and misstates the purpose of types. But as a study of the psychology of taxonomists (and more generally: humans and the social dynamics of naming systems), I find it to be pretty interesting.

Data Curation at Scale: The Data Tamer System
Stonebreaker CIDR 2013

Tuples in each cluster are consolidated using user-defined
rules. Null values are first discarded, and then we use stan-
dard aggregation methods such as Most-Frequent, Average,
Median, and Longest-String to combine the attribute values
of tuples within each cluster.

Insect herbivores selectively mute GLV production in plants
Here we provide evidence that chewing insects stimulate JA production but suppress the synthesis of GLVs through the transcriptional and post transcriptional reprogramming of critical genes in the corresponding pathway.

DSpace@MIT: Comparative Schematology
Thus in order to carry on a practical study of the comparative power of different languages we are led to banish explicit functions and deal instead with abstract, uninterpreted programs, or schemas.

On Hiring | TOS: Thoughts on Software
It is in both parties’ interest to hire the person who would last for many years. This can only work if both parties are sufficiently happy with the arrangement, if there is a good mutual fit.

Never feel bad about being rejected after an interview or losing a candidate. Be happy that a bad fit was surfaced, and years of unhappiness prevented.
