redis - Project Hosting on Google Code

redis - Project Hosting on Google Code: "Redis is an advanced key-value store. It is similar to memcached but the dataset is not volatile, and values can be strings, exactly like in memcached, but also lists, sets, and ordered sets. All this data types can be manipulated with atomic operations to push/pop elements, add/remove elements, perform server side union, intersection, difference between sets, and so forth. Redis supports different kind of sorting abilities."

Artificial intelligence: Riders on a swarm | The Economist: "Intellidance

Swarmanoid robots may not much resemble the creatures that originally inspired the field, but insects continue to give programmers ideas. Dr Dorigo’s group has, for instance, developed a system to allow robots to detect when a swarm member is malfunctioning. This was inspired by the way some fireflies synchronise their light emissions so that entire trees flash on and off. The robots do the same, and if one light goes out of synch because of a malfunction the other bots can react quickly, either isolating the maverick so that it cannot cause trouble, or calling back to base to have it withdrawn."

What is negative code? - Stack Overflow

What is negative code? - Stack Overflow: "It means reducing lines of code, by removing redundancies or using more concise constructs.

See for example this famous anecdote from the original Apple Lisa developer team:

When the Lisa team was pushing to finalize their software in 1982, project managers started requiring programmers to submit weekly forms reporting on the number of lines of code they had written. Bill Atkinson thought that was silly. For the week in which he had rewritten QuickDraw’s region calculation routines to be six times faster and 2000 lines shorter, he put '-2000' on the form. After a few more weeks the managers stopped asking him to fill out the form, and he gladly complied."

2011 Art Theme: Rites of Passage


2011 ART THEME: RITES OF PASSAGE

As soon as the Man burned, we published the art theme for 2011: Rites of Passage. Here's the short version:

"There are moments of crisis and frisson in our lives which inform us that we've somehow crossed an inner threshold and are changed. Thus moving from one state of being into an unknown other is not a facile transformation; it obliges us to face our innermost insecurities, and it requires faith, a willingness to leap off the ladder of ordered existence. Our theme this year invites participants to join with others in creating rites of passage."

Phylogeny of the Families of Birds From Sibley and Ahlquist
This data set describes the phylogenetic relationships of the orders of birds as reported by Sibley and Ahlquist (1990)
Tyranni - The suborder of passerine birds Tyranni (the suboscines) includes about 1,000 species, the large majority of which are South American.

These have a different anatomy of the syrinx musculature than the songbirds in the suborder Passeri, the oscine passerines. The available morphological, mt and nDNA sequence, and biogeographical data, as well as the (scant) fossil record, agrees that the Tyranni and Passeri suborders are evolutionarily distinct clades.
Passerine - A passerine is a bird of the order Passeriformes, which includes more than half of all bird species. Sometimes known as perching birds or, less accurately, as songbirds, the passerines form one of the most diverse terrestrial vertebrate orders: with over 5,000 identified species,[1] it is roughly twice as species rich as the largest of the mammal orders, the Rodentia.

The names "passerines" and "Passeriformes" are derived from Passer domesticus, the scientific name of the type species ? the House Sparrow ? and ultimately from the Latin term passer for Passer sparrows and similar small birds.
Nine-primaried oscine
Songbird - A songbird is a bird belonging to the suborder Passeri of the perching birds (order Passeriformes). Another name that is sometimes seen as scientific or vernacular name is Oscines. This group contains some 4000 species, in which the vocal organ typically is developed in such a way as to produce a diverse and elaborate bird song.

This 'bird song' is essentially territorial in that it communicates the identity and whereabouts of an individual to other birds and also signals sexual intentions. It is not to be confused with bird calls, which are used for alarms and contact, and are especially important in birds that feed or migrate in flocks. While almost all living birds give calls of some sort, well-developed songs are only given by a few lineages outside the songbirds.

Analyses of Phylogenetics and Evolution
Aves: Systematics - Birds arose from theropod dinosaurs at some point in the Jurassic, according to present knowledge. Birds, together with the rest of the dinosaurs, the crocodilians, and their relatives are classified together in the Archosauria.

awesome




I am going to build a series of sub/infrasonic speakers in organic
that people can sit and lie down on. These speakers will not just
make sound but will vibrate at low frequencies, scientifically
designed to elict deep reactions from participants, both physiological
and psychological. Eventually I'll be hooking people up to EEG
machines to find the frequencies that will make them have peak
experiences, which could be spiritual, erotic, or "other". The bass
will also be loud enough that people nearby can hear and feel, and
will be part of a eventual multimodal experience.

This is going to be part of an installation/theme camp that I'm going
to be taking to Burning Man next year. It will include visuals,
hammocks and these bass seats. It will blow minds and make people
orgasm and/or have spiritual experiences spontaneously.

PRS for Music Foundation - 4. The Organ of Corti by Liminal

PRS for Music Foundation - 4. The Organ of Corti by Liminal: "This idea from liminal, an arts practice led by composer David Prior and architect Frances Crow, introduces the concept of recycling existing sounds in already sound- saturated environments (the ‘Corti’ is part of the inner ear). It will create new ways of listening to what is already around us and an acoustic lens through which to contemplate the sounds of that specific location. The music will be collected and filtered by a portable structure resembling a fairground organ. The premiere of 'The Organ of Corti' would take place in the City of London during the three weeks of the 2011 City of London Festival. Three further performances are planned over the following week as 'The Organ of Corti' travels to various sites including the M6 motorway. �"

sness

while at Burning Man, the strangest thing, every few hours, or less, I would hear someone call out "sness!" or sometimes "sness" would pop loudly out of a conversation. this does not happen for me in the real world. very cool.
