When the Night Falls

When the Night Falls
   Disclaimer: I am biased. Iced Earth are one of my two most favorite bands for twelve years now. My other favorite band is Uriah Heep but they have not released good album for more than thirty years and I am actually scared to go to one of their concerts. With Iced Earth these problems do not exist. If I said that I had been waiting to see them in Bulgaria since I first heard them it would be a lie because in 99 I did not imagine that this was possible. However on 22.11.2011 they did play in Sofia!

Java2Days 2011

Java2Days 2011
   Despite not winning a free pass this year I decided to attend the Java2Days conference again.

John McCarthy Has Entered the Matrix

John McCarthy Has Entered the Matrix
   Giants of computer science and information technology have conspired this month to make my website look like a wall with obituaries. After Steve Jobs and Dennis Ritchie John McCarthy has entered the Matrix to live there forever. His greatest contributions were in the field of artificial intelligence but he is best known for discovering the Lisp programming language. I use the word "discovering" because in my opinion math is not invented, it just is and is waiting for someone to discover it and Lisp is a programming language that embodies pure math. Until recently I did not know that but according to his Wikipedia article he was the first to "suggest (in a speech given to celebrate MIT's centennial) that computer time-sharing technology might lead to a future in which computing power and even specific applications could be sold through the utility business model". Guess what! He invented cloud computing!

   He was 84 when he entered the Matrix. AI and cloud computing... He was the fucking Architect!
