Four short links: 24 August 2011

  1. STM in PyPy -- a proposal to add software transactional memory to the all-Python Python interpreter as a way of simplifying concurrent programming. I first learned about STM from Haskell's Simon Peyton-Jones at OSCON. (via Nelson Minar)
  2. Werner Vogels' Static Web Site on S3 -- nice writeup of the toolchain to publish a web site to static files served from S3.
  3. China Inadvertently Reveals State-Sponsored Hacking -- if UK, US, France, Israel, or Chinese citizens believe their government doesn't have malware and penetration teams working on extracting information from foreign governments, they're dreaming.
  4. MyChinese360 -- virtual foreign language instruction in Mandarin, including "virtual visits" to Chinese landmarks. The ability to get native speakers virtually into the classroom makes the Internet a huge asset for rural schools. (via Lucy Gray)
