For those that have noticed the recent lull in postings, you will be pleased to hear that a normal service will shortly be resumed. I’ve been very busy working hard on a number of interesting projects that I’m looking forward to sharing with everyone.
The theme of this blog will also focus more on my research interests, namely matters concerned with Communicative Programming - seeing programming as a form of communication. Therefore I’ll be using this space to explore my ideas on concepts such as Domain Specific Languages, Polyglot Programming, Conceptual Efficiency, and important notions such as perspective, intention context and time.
You might also note that this blog no longer contains a comments form. This is partly due to technical reasons and mostly due to the huge personal benefits I gain by not having to deal with spam filters and all that paraphernalia. The technical aspects are down to me choosing a static site generator tool (Jekyll in this case) which allows me to completely bypass any web site authentication and interfaces, and focus purely on writing text in Markdown with Emacs and pushing updates with Git. Things like this really soothe my mind.
I’m really looking forward to getting some more of my ideas out and sharing them with you all. Although there is no comment form, I will be accepting comments via email and if I think they’re helpful and relevant will happily append them to the post they’re related to. Hopefully the small amount of effort of emailing a comment will help to increase each comment’s quality - a win for everyone!
See you back here soon…
