polymorphic variants in ocaml
(* The magic of ocaml polymorphic variants:
* - subsystem A produces an error `NSaServ
* - subsystem B checks for error `SaupDOF
* - both exist in a world with some extra variant `Common
* the two odd symbols _hash to the same representation_ in ocaml's
* implementation of polymorphic variant tagging.

Ownership passing vs. borrowing
// This is just an elaboration of an off-hand toot I made earlier today
// concerning a coding pattern I find myself doing whenever possible: passing
// and returning owned values instead of borrowing references.
// I find it works well for long-lived values especially since the resulting
// composite objects have no lifetime qualifiers, so I don't have to plumb
// lifetimes through to all the code that uses them.
// Assumption: assume we have a few objects like this: a network connection, a
// database, some commands, etc. and we want to make a session type that uses

A Review of Paul Graham's Bel, Chris Granger's Eve, and a Silly VR Rant

Hello Friends,

This elf begging to climb onto the web for Christmas began as a personal email, a review of Paul Graham's little Lisp Bel. He sprouted arms, legs, and in gingerstyle ran away. Arms for symbols, legs for conses: these primitives are the mark a Lisp — even more so than the parenthesis. What do we get when we remove these foundation stones: naming and pairing?

No pairs. No cons. No structure. Unordered. Chaos. Eve, a beautifully incomplete aspect oriented triple store. No need for legs when you can effortlessly transport to your destination. Lazy. Pure. Here and now, a retrospective.

No symbols. No names. No variables. Combinators. Forth. No need for arms when you can effortlessly push and pop your stack. No words. A world without words. Virtual worlds. Virtual reality. Space. Time. Motion. Action. Kinetic Programming, a proposal.

I apologize in advance. Checking my pocketwatch, I see I haven't t
