My one-hundred-and-twenty-fourth podcast is up. This interview was setup on Twitter. Tim Bray is a Distinguished Engineer at Sun. He co-edited the XML and XML namespace specs back in the day as well as working on Atom. He is on Twitter at http://twitter.com/timbray. Tim has been running the Wide Finder 2 Project that you can learn more about at the Wide Finder Project Wiki. It is an attempt to answer this interesting question: "What is a good way to write computer programs to take advantage of modern slow-clock-rate/many-core computers, without imposing excessive complexity on programmers?"
If you have trouble downloading, or your download is slow, do try the torrent with µtorrent or another BitTorrent Downloader.
Do also remember the complete archives are always up and they have PDF Transcripts, a little known feature that show up a few weeks after each show.
Telerik is our sponsor for this show.
Telerik's new stuff is pretty sweet, check out the ONLINE DEMO of their new ASP.NET AJAX suite. RadGrid handles sorting, filtering, and paging of hundreds of thousands of records in milliseconds, and the RadEditor loads up to 4 times faster and the navigation controls now support binding to web services on the client.
As I've said before this show comes to you with the audio expertise and stewardship of Carl Franklin. The name comes from Travis Illig, but the goal of the show is simple. Avoid wasting the listener's time. (and make the commute less boring)
Enjoy. Who knows what'll happen in the next show?
