deevybee: I'd be suspicious of that journal's quality. The only journal I've ever heard of that required citations to itself was the notorious Chaos, Solitons and Fractals.

Would "higher-order optimization" include the Traveling Salesman Problem? I was reading D-Wave's "light switch game" analogy and thinking about how to embed the TSP in it, and I noticed that (at least with each edge as a switch) (n/2)-way interactions would be needed to rule out false solutions that consisted of multiple disjoint cycles.

Java should allow subclasses to make their inherited protected fields final. Then fields wouldn't have to be redundantly defined in both a Builder and the immutable built object -- they'd just be inherited from an abstract parent of both. After all, an architectural drawing is the same kind of drawing whether the house has been built or not, and software doesn't mind living in a blueprint.

Why do they call USB a "bus" when it doesn't have to stop to pick up and drop off data along its route? Why not use the term "bus" for token ring networks, since they're the one kind of data transport layer that drives like a bus route?

When will I find someone who'll hold a reference to me, so that I don't get garbage-collected?
