Via HN today: Renesas Enters FPGA Market with the First Ultra-Low-Power, Low-Cost Family Addressing Low-Density, High-Volume Applications. It says they will sell for around 50c, so that’s awesome and definitely something I need to look into in the future.
I happened upon this one today:
He who knows only his own side of the case knows little of that. His reasons may be good, and no one may have been able to refute them. But if he is equally unable to refute the reasons on the opposite side, if he does not so much as know what they are, he has no ground for preferring either opinion… Nor is it enough that he should hear the opinions of adversaries from his own teachers, presented as they state them, and accompanied by what they offer as refutations. He must be able to hear them from persons who actually believe them…he must know them in their most plausible and persuasive form.
Seen today: Yes, PHP is Worth Learning/Using in $CURRENT_YEAR. There’s some good discussion on some of the more recent PHP language features and other notes about what’s available in the broader ecosystem.
