“The Breakfast Club: The Geek Years”
Nerds think they're cool.

These mildewing links have been clogging my blogging tool for too long, and it's time to get rid of them:

Quorum sensing: bees and ants use it to decide on new nest sites, drug-resistant bacteria use it to decide when to start to fuck shit up (Isn't “post-antibiotic era” a chilling phrase?). I'm waiting for an analysis of quorum sensing in software development. (I think American Scientist is the new Scientific American.)

Lore talks homebrew comix, and mentions Zach Beane's Lisp-powered Say What.

Clemens Fruhwirth has updated “A Guided Tour of CLIM” for the 21st century (he's got a Hello-world CLIM screencast, too). About the only thing about CLIM that has ever impressed me is the listener.

Franz is doing chatbots. (But when will we see the elusive Pandora After Hours version? Only Fritz knows for sure.) And note that “Pandorabots needs consultants.”

William Bland has a patch for SLIME that highlights edited code that hasn't been compiled.
