Nerd Food: Interesting...

Nerd Food: Interesting…

Time to flush all those tabs again. Some interesting stuff I bumped into recently-ish.

Finance, Economics, Politics

Startups et al.

General Coding



  • New ELF Linker from the LLVM Project: LLVM keeps on delivering! Now a new ELF linker. To be totally honest, I haven't even started using Gold in anger - I get the feeling the LLVM linker is going to be transitioned in much quicker than Gold.
  • Clang with Microsoft CodeGen in VS 2015 Update 1: OMG, OMG how cool is this - MSFT decided to create a backend for Clang that is totally compatible with MSVC AND open source it! This is just insane. This means for example that you now can develop C++ on Windows without ever having to use MSVC and Visual Studio. It also means you can cross-compile from Linux into Windows with 100% certainty things will work. It means that projects like Wine and ReactOS can start thinking about a migration path into Clang (not quite as simple as it may sound but surely makes sense). CLion with Clang on Windows will rock. The possibilities are just endless. I never quite understood what C2 was all about until I read this announcement - suddenly it all makes sense. This is fantastic news.

Layman Science


  • NoiseRV Live: Still discovering this Portuguese musician, but love his work. Great concert. Could do a little bit less talking between songs, but still - artists prerogative and all that.
  • Warm Focus: Winging It: Interesting set of "intelligent dance music" as we used to call it back in the day.
  • Mosaic - The “First” Web Browser: Super-cool podcasts about internet history. It would be great to have something like this for UNIX!
  • Jackson C. Frank (1965): Tragic musician from the 60s. Great tunes.
  • Reason in common sense: Always wanted to read Santayana properly. Started, but I guess it will be a very long exercise. Interesting, if somewhat strange book.
  • Ceu - jazz baltica Live (2010): New find, Brazilian musician Ceu.
