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

2005-04-17 Standard 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:
  1. Flexible record patters (and the derived form of #label) are now first-class patterns, and can therefore used without type constraints, as explained above.
  2. 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.)
  3. 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.

Best of the Web

My personal picks for most outstanding web pages:

Best nerdic humor page.

Most stunning computer graphics: 3-D strange attractors, quaternion fractals and chaotic kin. A definite "must see"!

Most stunning photographs: Chinese Scenery.

Best dolphin page.

Most important single Web site: International PGP Page, defending civil rights in the electronic age.

Best research collection: The Silk Road virtual collection, with thousands of maps, paintings, photos &tc &tc.

Best charity page: The Hunger Site: Every click feeds someone, somewhere.

Best Popular Mathematics Page: The MacTutor History of Mathematics archive, covering Greek math through General Relativity with great biographical material.

Best online daily news: Electronic Telegraph(UK): Not just the usual wire feed, but good stuff with lots of hotlinks.

Best Weather Service: Intellicast, "Your online guide to weather, ski and ocean conditions,", including a Seattle page.

Most thought-provoking: Anders Main Page, my personal pick for overall best Web page. Check out the transhuman page in particular. I still don't believe in traversable wormholes, but this is good stuff to get the mental gears turning!
First runner-up: The Telson Spur, A Way Station for Snark Hunters, with oodles of good science fiction quotes and science links.

Most intriguing science site: Astronomy picture of the day. Consistently smashing!
See also: Snow Crystals.

Best voice of reason keeping tabs on the psychos: Fascist New World Order page.

Best search engine: Alta Vista. I used to like the WebCrawler and Lycos, but Alta Vista is in an entirely different class. DEC has thrown a dozen people and CPUS at the problem and the result is simply amazing.

Best browsable index: Yahoo. I was reading their What's New daily for awhile.

Best under construction sign. (Originally found on CubaWeb.)

Best documentary/photo essay: Bosnia: Uncertain paths to peace.

Pilots of the purple twilight dropping down with costly bales;
Heard the heavens fill with shouting, and there rain'd a ghastly dew
From the nations' airy navies grappling in the central blue;

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. Reassured? Here's a discussion of the twelve current US states of emergency.

Contagious Mental Diseases

This section is dedicated to memory all the untold millions killed by contagious mental diseases.

I mourn the hundreds slaughtered by Moses immediately after being told "Thou Shalt Not Kill." (Are they the first such victims known to history, if history it be?)

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.

AFF Cultic Studies keeps track of some of the most dangerous, offers treatment advice for friends of victims, and conducts education and research.
The Cult Awareness Network has been driven into bankruptcy by 50 Scientologist lawsuits over a four year period.
Christian Hall of Shame.
The Reading of the Riddle, Neo-Tech Home Page, PRIVACY JURISPRUDENCE AND THE APARTHEID OF THE CLOSET, 1946-1961 and Northwesten University Korea University are four of the five hits Alta Vista returns for the query "contagious mental disease" (the fifth is a dead link); Alta Vista returns no hits whatever to "contagious mental diseases". Appears to be a quite amazingly effective suppression of a problem affecting billions of people and responsible for untold millions of of pointless deaths.


Claude Shannon invented information theory, the base for much of modern computing and hence of the modern economy. I suspect much of biology and artificial intelligence will eventually been seen as based on it. Lucent (nee Bell Labs) established an Information Theory page to mark the 50th anniversary of the publication of his seminal paper; It also includes a biographical sketch.
