Managed to implement fibonacci and factorial in prolog without assistance, yay. Next up: implement a list reversal and then a list sort. Such a radically different way of thinking about programs! It's like writing a unit test that generates the code to satisfy itself. Or something. I dunno. I should have done this SLSW chapter a long time ago with the rest of the book, but I chickened out the first time around.

I got bubble sort working but I'm not sure my implementation is technically correct (as in, it does what it's supposed to but I'm not 100% sure the order of operations is correct).

Part of my interest in tackling Prolog is to get familiar with game AI, especially pathfinding, so yeah similar interests :)

I probably won't use prolog in production but it seemed like a good environment to force myself out of conventional procedural thinking.

Another great article from Aeon Magazine, this time about the appropriation of hacker culture by the tech elite. I'm not sure where I stand on this one, but it's thought-provoking at least.
The hacker ethos is wild and anarchic, indifferent to the trappings of success. Or it was, until the gentrifiers moved in

Could search engines and social networks, or at least the algorithms behind them, be the new king makers in electoral politics? Would this be better or worse than the conscious and unconscious biases of the traditional media?
 
The magical accuracy of search engine results may be the worst thing to happen to democracy since unfettered campaign donations.

Better as it more likely reflects common consensus. Same to worse depending on if they are tweaking for a particular result and the number of steps between search and mental state are fewer than vs media. Too much concentrated power, regardless. Oh well.

These bugs are getting out of hand.

I guess they don't have one here. They're not supposed to even live here. Some kind of migration or something. A brief Googling didn't reveal any explanations.

Played with Prolog a bit today. I can see how it would be useful for certain kinds of problems, but I haven't got to the part where you can dynamically update its set of clauses yet (if such a thing exists, but one assumes...)

I think my semi-annual delve into social media is just about over.

Printed a stand for my tablet last night. Works great! Bottom is a little loose, but that was my fault.

Think it needs some felt or rubber feet on the base and the easel to stop it sliding around so much.

Another great entry in the EFF's suite of useful, practical, user-friendly tools.

Nice job guys. I'll run it alongside adblock for now, but in the interest of minimizing redundancy I'm hoping I can replace it entirely.

Online Job Application Software is a UX Quagmire. Why?

Does anybody out there who has worked on one of these systems care to take a stab at explaining what is going wrong behind the scenes at brassring and other SaaS vendors who provide online job application systems to major retailers?
