This is the +Jasmine Thompson song I'm addicted to today.  If you listen closely you'll see that she inverted the she/he/her/him!

I still wish Jasmine would cover Sarah McLachlan's Adia...

My god #Monsanto is a wretched, wretched company, and thank you Neil Young for fighting back with his latest album and this short documentary.

This sounds amazing, if it can really make it out of the #Intel  / #Micron  labs and into our hands.

I am a bit disillusioned about unified work/storage memory. Every other year some new technology promises something like this. Previously there has been magnetoresistive, ferroelectric and phase-change RAM.

I have no reason to believe we won't get there at some point, but until I can buy a non-experimental machine with it, I consider the claims of X speed and Y capacity at Z power to be mostly hot air.

#Lucene gets a Snowball stemmer for Lithuanian!
OK, until they incorporate it, i think we should add the .sbl file here as well so its available. And you can confirm its ok for us to release this under the apache 2.0 license? I will take a deeper look and comment again after! Show. Robert Muir added a comment - 23/Jul/15 14:56 OK, ...

Story
Tagline
Apache Lucene hacker, co-author Lucene in Action 2nd edition
Introduction
Michael loves building software; he's been building search engines for more than a decade. In 1999 he co-founded iPhrase Technologies, a startup providing a user-centric enterprise search application, written primarily in Python and C. After IBM acquired iPhrase in 2005, Michael fell in love with Lucene, becoming a committer in 2006 and PMC member in 2008. Michael has remained an active committer, helping to push Lucene to new places in recent years. He's co-author of Lucene in Action, 2nd edition. In his spare time Michael enjoys building his own computers, writing software to control his house (mostly in Python), encoding videos and tinkering with all sorts of other things.
