WordseyeOn Tuesday, Bob Coyne, one of the developers of Symbolics' S-Paint system, will be speaking at the next meeting of Lisp NYC about his new project, WordsEye [via Jim Thompson].WordsEye allows untrained users to spontaneously and interactively create 3D scenes by simply describing them. By using natural language, ordinary users can quickly create 3D scenes without having to learn special software, acquire artistic skills, or even touch a desktop window-oriented interface. Creating graphics with natural language gives a new sense of power to words and suggests applications in education and creative play as well as the creation of visual art itself. WordsEye relies on a large database of 3D models and images to depict objects and surface textures. WordsEye is written in Common Lisp and runs on Linux(Posted to mud-dev by JCLawrence)

2005-04-17Standard ML# of Kansai: SML# extends SML with polymorphic field selection and polymorphic non-destructive field update operation. Furthermore, polymorphic field accesses are always complied into efficient index operations. (For a formal description of SML#, see my paper "A Compilation Method for ML-style Polymorphic Record Calculi", POPL 1992 (its dvi file can be found in this directory.) I hope that the extensions embodied in SML# (or something like them) be integrated in the standard of future Standard ML.

SYNTAX OF SML#. It is the same as Standard ML except:

- Flexible record patters (and the derived form of #label) are now first-class patterns, and can therefore used without type constraints, as explained above.
- The expression constructor of the form
#> exp => {lab1=exp1,---,labn=expn}is added. (The sequence #> is now a reserved word and cannot be used as an identifier.)- A type variable can be constrained with a record kind by the syntax:
'a # {label_1:type_1,---,label_n:type_n,....}The trailing "..." is optional.2005-04-12Fusions: "Bjorn Victor and Joachim Parrow invented thefusion calculusin 1996-1998. Their inspiration was two-fold: tosimplify and make symmetric the pi calculus, and to model concurrent constraint programming. Meanwhile, independently, Yuxi Fu invented thechi calculus, essentially the same as the fusion calculus." Other keywords mentioned:equatorsandsolos calculus.

Minneapolis, MN, US: The Cyberview 3D Document Generator is a new WWW
server add-on that makes it easy to create HTML documents with inline,
rotatable, hyperlinked 3D images (3D imagemaps). These 3D pages are
created using ordinary HTML (together with one special IMG3D tag to
inline the 3D data), and can be viewed with any HTML 2.0-compatible
Web browser. Binaries for selected server platforms are freely
available from
The Geometry Center.

secure communications over insecure channels. It is intended as a

Abuse of the Executive Order in America: The US has officially been in an extraordinary state of emergency suspending normal legal safeguards since 1933. The US President is today empowered among (many!) other things to unilaterally take over all modes of transportation, the communication media, all electrical power, gas, petroleum, fuels and minerals, all food resources and farms, all health, education and welfare functions, to relocate communities, to mobilize civilians into work brigades under government supervision, and to operate a national registration of all persons.

I mourn the thousands slaughtered indiscriminately in the Temple by the Crusaders, "until the blood ran high as a horse's bridle."

I mourn the millions slaughtered in Europe during the Dark Ages for the hideous crime of being perhaps non-Christian.

I mourn the thousands of children dead after being sent to walk through minefields on the promise of a shortcut to "heaven".

I mourn the dozens who died at Heaven's Gate.

I mourn the handful who died at Salem.

I mourn those who died alone, victims of cult-crazed bombers and assassins.

I mourn them all.

I mourn not only the dead, but those otherwise caught as "collateral damage" in these mad maelstroms:

I mourn the thousands of children lost to the Children's Crusade.

I mourn the needless obsessive compulsives wasting their lives in fruitless rituals.

Not least, I mourn the billions of minds stunted for life by ruthless childhood indoctrination, and the guarantees of future deaths, hatreds, obsessions and insanities they carry within them.

From the Austin, TX Robot
Group's blimp design notes: "I have recently designed a telemetry
system for use on my R/C airplanes that uses a 68HC11 and
SuperCircuits ATV transmitter. The audio channel is driven by a modem
chip off the HC11's serial port so I get full motion video and 1200
baud data on the audio. A modem on the audio output of the TV
receiver feeds my HP palmtop with the data at RS232 levels and the
palmtop stores it on flash disk. My only regret is that I didn't go
with PC electronics for my transmitter - the lack of a sync pulse
stretcher on the SuperCircuits transmitter prevents sufficient sync
signal integrity to drive a VCR from the recovered video."
The RoboBlimp folx (above) think SuperCircuits
has really cool microvideo stuff suitable for remote sensing.
