Announcing the second public release of blank-canvas, a Haskell binding to the complete HTML5 Canvas API. blank-canvas allows Haskell users to write, in Haskell, interactive images onto their web browsers.

Richard Hipp, creator of SQLite:

“SQLite is not a replacement for #PostgreSQL. SQLite is a replacement for fopen()”

NoSQL systems are  “Postmodern Databases: absence of objective truth; Queries return opinions rather than facts”.

So I learned a new word today: kook

[Usenet; originally and more formally, net.kook] Term used to describe a regular poster who continually posts messages with no apparent grounding in reality. Different from a {troll}, which mplies a sort of sly wink on the part of a poster who knows better, kooks really believe what they write, to the extent that they believe anything.
  
The kook trademark is paranoia and grandiosity. Kooks will often build up elaborate imaginary support structures, fake corporations and the like, and continue to act as if those things are real even after their falsity has been documented in public.
  
While they may appear harmless, and are usually filtered out by the other regular participants in a newsgroup of mailing list, they can still cause problems because the necessity for these measures is not immediately apparent to newcomers; there are several instances on record, for example, of journalists writing stories with quotes from kooks who caught them unaware.

An entertaining web page chronicling the activities of many notable kooks can be found at http://www.crank.net/usenet.html

Today we released the first prototype of the "Human Language Compiler".  This is a natural language translator based on ideas from programming language compilers, i.e. unlike many other translators we use formal grammars. The prototype supports translation between any pair of the supported eleven languages and it works completely offline. As far as I know this is the smallest such translator. The total size of the application is 23Mb. There is still a lot to be done. Primarily there are many errors and holes in the dictionaries. However, in the open-source spirit we decided to release earlier rather than never (i.e. when it becomes perfect).
The Human Language Compiler is a translator for human language based on pro...

An incomplete, but none the less very valuable description of GHC's runtime system (rts) implementation: http://ezyang.com/jfp-ghc-rts-draft.pdf

An interesting article by +Dan Piponi that views type in terms of reducing a problem to a simpler problem as a quotient problem (rather than sub-problem).
