The Next Big Programming Language You’ve Never Heard Of

The Next Big Programming Language You’ve Never Heard Of
Getty Andrei Alexandrescu didn’t stand much of a chance. And neither did Walter Bright. When the two men met for beers at a Seattle bar in 2005, each was in the midst of building a new programming language, trying to remake the way the world creates and runs its computer software. That’s something pretty close to a hopeless task, as Bright knew all too well. “Most languages never go anywhere,” he told Alexandrescu that night. Alexandrescu, a graduate student at the time, could’ve said the same thing to Bright, an engineer who had left the venerable software maker Symantec a few years earlier.

C++ is an extremely fast language—meaning software built with it runs at high speed—and it provides great control over your code. Among the giants of tech, this is an increasingly common goal. In fact, Facebook is working to bridge this gap with not one but two languages.

The basic idea behind Bountysource seems easy enough to explain--it’s a crowdfunding site for open source software. But when the site first launched about a decade ago, those were still fairly esoteric concepts for potential users and investors. Even the founders, then fresh out of college, had never heard the term “crowdfounding,” says cofounder and COO David Rappo. The project died fast. "It ran for a few months before we realized this wasn't gonna pay our bills, and we needed to move on and get real jobs,” says Rappo.

Hack any paid WiFi hotspot in about 30 seconds (The above video was banned from YouTube on 9/12/2014 and hence has been re-uploaded to Vimeo. No explanation for the ban was given. The original YouTube video identifier was: Agodg3dmwaQ ). Or rather, DON'T hack any paid WiFi hotspots, as that would be bad... Also, don't turn your WiFi card off and then back on again after the hack to rectify any MAC address conflicts that might arise.

The Next Big Thing You Missed: A Social Network That Could Truly Reform Our Schools Photo: Getty The federal government has spent 12 years trying to impose reform on primary and secondary schools from above, using things like financial incentives and standardized tests. Edmodo is working from the other direction, hoping to improve our schools from the bottom up. Edmodo is a social network specifically designed for primary and secondary schools, offering a way for teachers to more easily assess students and trade tips. At a time when many teachers feel hamstrung by standardized tests and associated performance standards, Edmodo helps them exchange techniques in a peer-to-peer, ad hoc fashion. It also provides a relatively unfettered playground where they create and share educational videos and software that can compete with the Facebook posts, texts, YouTube videos, and others things that distract students from their work.

How to Anonymize Everything You Do Online One year after the first revelations of Edward Snowden, cryptography has shifted from an obscure branch of computer science to an almost mainstream notion: It’s possible, user privacy groups and a growing industry of crypto-focused companies tell us, to encrypt everything from emails to IMs to a gif of a motorcycle jumping over a plane. But it’s also possible to go a step closer toward true privacy online. Mere encryption hides the content of messages, but not who’s communicating. Use cryptographic anonymity tools to hide your identity, on the other hand, and network eavesdroppers may not even know where to find your communications, let alone snoop on them. “Hide in the network,” security guru Bruce Schneier made his first tip for evading the NSA. “The less obvious you are, the safer you are.”
