Well, I think we can all just give up on computer science now. ;_:

While I find Twitter to be an important anger management tool, its 140 character limit can be confining when I find myself truly blind with nerd rage. Such was the case today when +Dave Pacheco cruelly pointed me to http://web.mit.edu/newsoffice/2011/infinite-loops-interrupt-0802.html -- an idea that is so flawed at so many levels that it's hard to know where to start (one knows only that 140 characters won't be nearly enough). This notion is the latest in a long string of bad ideas from the academy that attempt to paper over software defects instead of making it easier to diagnose them from a single failure. That such research topics remain trendy when production debugging technology is still so primitive in so many ways is the fundamental flaw of academic software systems research: solving actual, real problems is too expensive (that is, they take longer than the single PhD student that the academic slave trade allows), so academics are left to find gimmicky magic bullets that fit in a single grant proposal or conference paper. When they do solve real problems (and, to be fair, they occasionally do), they solve it having ignored so many real-world constraints (around either performance or maintainability or false-positives or problem definition) as to render the work practically useless. Now I confess that I find this example particularly galling not just because of the work itself, but because of the recklessly ignorant attitude of a CS professor -- Westley Weimer -- quoted in the piece: “The vast majority of software engineering or programming-language researchers are shackled to this notion of full correctness or full soundness: You can’t change anything in the program if there’s even the possibility of getting a slightly wrong answer.” I think I speak on behalf of all professional software engineers -- those of us who are "shackled" to correct operation -- when I say: ARE YOU FUCKING KIDDING ME?!

Completely counter to my feelings about every other aspect of the article I find myself hoping that "probably correct" was a jab at "provably correct".

Too tired to read Facebook today, but I can deal with this because nothing interesting happens here.

There is no way to enforce this policy that doesn't suck.

I'm surprised they even tried. Even matching against known expletives might wrong someone.

Have I mentioned Nexenta is hiring? :)
Oracle has acquired Ksplice, a privately-held company based in Cambridge, MA. Ksplice is the creator of innovative downtime update technology for Linux

I didn't know Aaron personally and I don't agree with the way he did it, but this shit is SCARY and exemplifies what is wrong with academic papers locked behind pay walls today. I would have been proud to "steal" all those articles. (To be fair, it's the DA's office, not JSTOR, that is filing a criminal case).
