As We May Think - The Atlantic
“Consider a future device …  in which an individual stores all his books, records, and communications, and which is mechanized so that it may be consulted with exceeding speed and flexibility. It is an enlarged intimate supplement to his memory.”

Kumo desu ga, Nani ka? 301 | Raising the Dead

She snorted. “Junior bartenders get ten percent! You’re a junior-apprentice sodajerk.”

It worked once before, so why not again. “Seven percent?”


“Five?” I asked.

She sighed. “Fine, but only because you’re like my daughter. And if anything comes out uneven, I’m not splitting it in favor of you.”

Dynamic Languages are Static Languages | Existential Type
While reviewing some of the comments on my post about parallelism and concurrency, I noticed that the great fallacy about dynamic and static languages continues to hold people in its thrall.  So, in the same "everything you know is wrong" spirit, let me try to set this straight: a dynamic language is a straightjacketed static…
