Arthur Beatrice - Concert à emporter (youtube-nocookie.com)
On the news,
- An interesting opinion trio:
- Thesis: The end of dynamic languages.
- Antithesis: The sky is not falling.
- Synthesis: Have static languages won?
- ... all via this week's Clojure Gazette. I'd also link to Gary Bernhardt's keynote from PyCon 2015, which IIRC hinted at the same direction as the latter "synthesis" article —that unit testing brings a set of benefits A, while typing brings another set of benefits B, but with varying overlap—. Sadly it's still nowhere to be found.
- Brandalism: 82 artists install 600 fake ads across Paris to protest the COP21 climate conference.
- Working videoconferencing and web browser in Minecraft, via waxy links.
- Aibohphobia, "an irrational fear of palindromes.". Via Trivium.
