PLEASE SHARE WIDELY TO THOSE IT MAY CONCERN

would anyone be willing to participate in an experimental study where you would treat your mufg for, say, four weeks according to a preset plan imposed on you (e.g. 50 L8 resonators in one week, 30 jarvis in the next and so on),  report the current number of items every, say, 12 hours on a simple online form, and otherwise not touch the mufg? it would be quite restrictive - essentially you give the power how your capsule is used over to a third party and execute their wishes to the letter - and you could not really use the capsule at your own discrection and fluctuating ideas. but a study of this sort could give some robust and reliable numbers to get a reliable and initial estimates to answer questions like:
* do different capsules have different interest rates and if so, which?
* do different capsules have different interest intervals, and if so, which?
* do items of different rarity multiply differently?
* is there a fixed or rather variable interest rate?
* does it matter if the capsule contains mixed items or is it better to only load one type of item?
* does it impede replication if i look into the capsule often or does it not matter?
also such an experimental study may serve as a precedent for future studies about ingress items (including subsequent studies on the mufg that can answer additional questions and test very specific hypotheses) and make it easier in the future to hack item regularities.

i have thought about setting up something like this, but have so far hesitated, because i didn't know whether it is worth the effort if not many people would agree to such a capsule regimen. i however still believe it would be useful. one main obstacle to data analysis of mufg events so far is that, people display a huge variation in what they put in, for how long they let it sit, etc... the analysis of data like this, however requires huge numbers of observations, very, very precise and reliable data and, most importantly, certain distributions of different capsule use parameters. but an experimental study, where some things are tightly controlled and planned out, may give quality answers with a smaller sample of mufg capsule behavior observations. so: how many people would be up for a study of this kind? please answer the poll, and indicate if you would be in general willing to participate in such a study. and leave your comments in the ... wel...er... comments section.

+Norman Ramsey Could the SIGPLAN LaTeX class live on Github? We could then share, say, double-blinding setup in a fork (re: https://www.facebook.com/henglein/posts/1086705224679874?comment_id=1087473867936343&offset=50&total_comments=110&comment_tracking=%7B%22tn%22%3A%22R9%22%7D). We'd have had license text one year ago.

I didn't necessarily expect SIGPLAN accepting pull requests, and IIUC the CC license would allow me to put the style file on GitHub.
But it'd be ignored; if SIGPLAN puts up (and link to) to a master fork, GitHub will let me browse forks and pick interesting add-ons.

I guess a public bug tracker would also be nice, but I see this'd be asking too much.

Not terribly serious ;-) That's about what I do.

For some reason though the "and you?" feels a bit insincere, more so than the first "how do you do?".

Question is: what do you do if you actually want to know how somebody is? Ask them three times? Kinda silly... ^.^'

On ACM's policy on Open Access, and why we are still part of ACM.
 
Follow-up to the open letter from SIGPLAN to ACM candidates regarding the ACM DL. Disappointingly, they didn't bother to even differentiate themselves from each other. Thanks to +Philip Wadler, +Derek Dreyer, and others.
The SIGPLAN EC has written to the candidates for the up-and-coming ACM council elections. This page contains a copy of the letter sent, and the response from the candidates. Dear [Candidate],. I write to you on behalf of the executive committee of ACM SIGPLAN. We are sending the questions to all ...

+Norman Ramsey, what about sigplanconf on GitHub? Even with fixed output, lots could be improved (like your "tablet support" project, and more). We'd need sources for sigplanconf-guide if possible to document changes, if possible.

WHO OWNS YOUR RESEARCH?

What should be the role of associations like the ACM? Are they publishers who market science? Or should they strive to make research results available to all free of charge? Scientific publishing is about to undergo radical changes.  Take this poll:  http://goo.gl/vlCtn2   Make your voice heard!
WHO OWNS YOUR RESEARCH? This survey, sponsored by SIGPLAN, is it intended to shed light on the position of the scientific community with respect to open access and the publishing of scientific results in CS. [go to the survey]. Open access (OA) refers to unrestricted access to scientific works ...

Tom Ball, Ras Bodik, +Greg Morrisett, and I are organizing a new kind of programming languages conference. We already have several excellent conferences, but they are focused on incremental bits of novelty. We want to create a new kind of venue that complements these: to present and discuss big-picture questions and long-running programs; to view progress along the long arc of a research effort. The conference is May 3-6, 2015 in lovely Asilomar (on the Pacific Coast), CA, USA.

If this sounds interesting, please: don't just +1 it, reshare it. Why? To keep costs down and retain ownership of the conference with the community, we are independent, not affiliated with any organizations. That means you are the only PR channel we have. So please do us a favor. Thanks.

All the food was very good, the octopus was not hard to chew as often happens, my salmon was extremely juicy—its fat was melted up to the right point. The waiters were quite friendly, although since we were just two we were seated at the bar and not at a table. Would definitely come back here.
