Abstract:
This paper describes the derivation of the T-Complexity and T-Information
Theory from the decomposition of finite strings, based on the
duality of strings and variable-length T-Codes. It further outlines its similarity
to the string parsing algorithm by Lempel and Ziv. It is intended
as a summary of work published mainly by Titchener and Nicolescu.

The Setup / Rob Pike

The Setup / Rob Pike: "My dream setup, then, is a computing world where I don't have to carry at least three computers - laptop, tablet, phone, not even counting cameras and iPod and other oddments - around with me in order to function in the modern world.

Coding Horror: Software Developers and Asperger's Syndrome

Coding Horror: Software Developers and Asperger's Syndrome: "One provocative hypothesis that might account for the rise of spectrum disorders in technically adept communities like Silicon Valley, some geneticists speculate, is an increase in assortative mating. Superficially, assortative mating is the blond gentleman who prefers blondes; the hyperverbal intellectual who meets her soul mate in the therapist's waiting room. There are additional pressures and incentives for autistic people to find companionship - if they wish to do so - with someone who is also on the spectrum. Grandin writes, "Marriages work out best when two people with autism marry or when a person marries a handicapped or eccentric spouse.... They are attracted because their intellects work on a similar wavelength.""
