Awesome.
 
What does the spleen do? [a music video by Harvard Medical School students] http://shar.es/DPUte
Students at Harvard Medical School study body parts, among other things. Some of those students produced this video about the question "What does the spleen do?": The makers supply this info: A Parody of "The Fox" by Ylvis. This video was created for the 107th Annual Second Year Show by the Harvard Medical School and Harvard School of Dental Medicine (HMS/HSDM) class of 2016. Written by Will Lewis, Lydia Flier, Eddie Grom, and Ariana Metchik-Gad...

Of the three perf benchmarks on the #dartlang webpage, Richards is the only one where the #dart2js output performances worse than the source javascript. 

13 days ago, it was at 85% of the source JS.
Yesterday: 93%

Interesting case!

"The Linux memory manager keeps cached filesystem pages in two types of lists. One list holds recently accessed pages (recency list), and the other one holds pages that have been referenced multiple times (frequency list).

In current kernel versions, the memory manager splits available memory evenly between these two lists to establish a trade-off between protecting frequently used pages and detecting recently used ones. In other words, the kernel reserves 50% of available memory to the frequency list."
Disclaimer: We always assume that when we have an issue and think it's the operating system, 99% of the time, it turns out to be something else. We therefore caution against assuming that the problem is with your operating system, unless your use-case and the following example completely overlap ...

Just a little something I thought was worth pointing out. @notch, the creator of Minecraft, has been posting updates on his latest toy project to his Twitter account recently. I've found this very interesting because he's doing a WebGL app in Dart, which just makes me all sorts of happy.

"My theory is that it was designed to experiment with advanced type and language features first, and only secondly became a language intended to be widely used.

And in my mind, that’s just not a good enough pedigree to warrant using."
I first encountered Scala about six years ago when I was forced to use an in-house build system written in Scala, that also used Scala as the language for build scripts. At the time, I thought Scala was a really poor choice. Our build scripts took three minutes to compile when changed — before ...

Groovy, JavaScript, and Ceylon. Groovy's type system is admittedly the same as Java's, but it's optionally typed, which I also like. Ceylon has its own, expressive type system with fully reified generics and null explicitness (e.g. Integer? is a distinct type from Integer)--so far I've found it more annoying than helpful. But at least its method signatures are more readable than Scala's.

+Nathan Weizenbaum is doing awesome things to make #dartlang  code easy to debug. From the commit message:

Add a stack chain class to the stack trace package. This class uses zones to track stack traces across asynchronous boundaries. It will aid considerably in debugging errors in heavily-asynchronous programs.

I've also heard it phrased as "Did you hear the joke about the UPD [protocol]? You wouldn't get it."

Really neat, though I think the imaging satellites with the "push broom" sensors (triangles) have their sensor FoV possibly rotated 90 deg.  I would be really surprised that they move along the "thin" edge, instead of perpendicular to it.

It all started with Snow Crash. If I hadn't read it and fallen in love with the idea of the Metaverse, if it hadn't made me realize how close networked 3D was to being a reality, if I hadn't thought I...

It reads like a list of best practices for enabling innovation, except the thing about stack ranking.  Wouldn't it discourage risk taking in the form of working with new groups and people?  And if there is downsizing, it seems like it could create quite a bit of anxiety as your day job turns into a game of Survivor.  Wouldn't the best people be least likely to tolerate working in that environment (since for them options are always plentiful)?
