(hello

‘world)

The first mapreduce?

Since I’m not fighting with C anymore, I’m back to plagiari… I mean ‘researching’, ideas. And while reading Thinking About Lots of Things at Once without Getting Confused: Parallelism in Act 1 I came upon this bit in the context of futures and actors:

Define SOLVE-INDEPENDANT-SUBGOALS:
Call COMBINE-RESULTS-OF-SUBGOALS on the result of
Creating a FUTURE to solve INDEPENDANT-SUBGOAL-1, and
A FUTURE trying to solve INDEPENDANT-SUBGOAL-2.

It may not be the first such construct, but it’s at least older than I am.

Speaking of which, looks like Go‘s back in the news. I can’t help but notice their mascot, think of Glenda, and wonder when rule 34 will strike. Someone needs to make this happen.
