The money quote: “Releasing the names of these institutions in real-time, in the midst of the financial crisis, would have seriously undermined the effectiveness of the emergency lending and the confidence of investors and borrowers." Somehow that justifies with-holding key information from public scrutiny. These are some arrogant SOBs. Remember that these loans came while bank CEOs were assuring Congress that they were in good shape. So lying to congress is not a crime for the banking cartel.

Do the ideas of AR and wearable computers interest you? Are you a closet gamer, with much respect for Id and Valve? Read this, and follow up.

Went to a great party last night. Synced with a bunch of folks I know and others I don't. Personal goal of getting all four co-authors to sign my F# book achieved.

Interesting pricing model. Buy a pre-release edition now. Get it for $10 this month, $20 in June, then $30, $40, and finally $50 upon release in November. All pre-release versions are upgraded to the final release version. I bought mine yesterday.

At work, we are now using bug reports as work items. To get test content in to a test pass template, write a bug. So these have become synonymous. Is this a good thing? Should we lose the distinction between "something is wrong" and "you need to do this"?

So AMP bring GPGPU to the masses with a new "restricted" C++ keyword. That means writing simple floating-point oriented components that can run on the GPU of DirectX 11 class video cards, or alternatively, the CPU. For us managed guys, a little interop is in order. This is it.
