"Just give me the word," my friend Simon said, "and I'll fucking waste him." He yelled across the bar at the guy. "You hear me, homes? I'll fucking waste you!" Simon only calls someone "homes" when he's about to administer righteous beat-downs.

I was being carried out the back exit of the pub while Simon kept asking for permission to try out some new martial arts moves on the guy. I was in too much pain to really care about justice, …

Horst Simon on Why we need Exascale and why we won't get there by 2020 : You could say that the end of the HPC world as we know it began in 2004, when we hit the inflection point of power use and clock speed. That's when we realized that we could not keep increasing clock speed due to power demands (and heat), but needed to move to much greater parallelism. In "new" HPC, power is the primary design constraint for future HPC system design; data movement dominates …

…with two relationships, which is expressed as ( Jim)-[: FRIEND]->( Simon) and ( Simon)-[: FRIEND]->(Jim) in Cypher, Neo4j's query language.

…the ins and outs of their products then expect people to pay for it. It doesn't work this way. Simon says ever inspiring leader, from Martin Luther King Jr. to Apple, start with asking "why" first before doing anything.

…others the ins and outs of their products then expect them to pay for it. That doesn't work. Simon says every inspiring leader — from Martin Luther King Jr. to companies like Apple — all talk and think the same. They ask "Why" first.

Hopefully these questions and examples have motivated you to ask "Why." Everyday I meet a designer who is simply doing what she or he is told by the client without challenging the assumptions. Asking "Why" …

Redis tutorial by Simon Willison

These slides and notes were originally written to accompany a three hour Redis tutorial I gave at the NoSQL Europe conference on the 22nd of April 2010.

Practical Uses of Ruby Blocks

Blocks are one of Ruby's defining features, and though we use them all the time, a lot of developers are much more comfortable calling methods that take blocks than writing them. Which is a shame, really, as learning to use blocks in a tasteful …

When we talk about life, what do we mean? For every known living organism on Earth that means something that is made up of Carbon, hydrogen, nitrogen, oxygen, phosphorus and sulfur. Until now, that is.

NASA scientist Felisa Wolfe Simon has discovered a completely new organism that is, as NASA is saying, "life as we do not know it." The bacteria, known as GFAJ -1, is capable of using arsenic to build its DNA , RNA , proteins, and cell membranes. Yeah, that …
