ai_systems_of_l4d_mike_booth.pdf (application/pdf Object)
A powerpoint about the design of the AI systems in the game "Left 4 Dead". Talks about how they made the AI's route-planning look natural, and also talked about how they used procedural (not scripted) methods for placing baddies yet also kept dramatic pacing... basically, the pace of the baddies is determined by how the good guys are doing.

Coding style in tag-based languages » Knowing .NET
When you are mixing flow-control and markup (eg: a template for an HTML page) do you indent for tags, markup, or both? Larry O'Brien says just for tags; I say for both.

Knowing .NET » Blog Archive » Brilliance From Siggraph: Bokeh-Based Tiny Barcodes
Apparently you can reconstruct from out-of-focus images the original data with enough precision to read barcodes with 2.5 micron features using an off-the-shelf camera at 4 meters!

Let He Who Has Never Compiled Untested Cast The First Stone » Knowing .NET
Test driven development ("test first") is rarely followed. Perhaps that's because it's a big pain when just starting a spike solution and a big pain when doing maintenance. It's only cheap and easy during the greenfield development stage of the software lifecycle. I'm not sure I agree, but it's an interesting point of view.

DSLs – fun, cool, but maybe a bad idea? - Rockford Lhotka
Domain specific languages are a bad idea because only your own company's programmers will know them, thus you'll have a hard time hiring people to maintain them.

Software transactional memory
A report by some researchers at IBM who have spent the past two years building a software Transactional Memory system. They say the performance sucks and there's little hope for improvement. Perhaps some hardware support will help, but frankly they are VERY pessimistic -- and that's from people who believe enough to spend 2 years actually building it!
