New blogpost: Vats and Propagators: towards a global brain https://dustycloud.org/blog/vats-and-propagators/
Largely some scifi-sounding notes to self about how to make our networks more intelligent, but figured I'd write them down in case others found it interesting.
Taking algorithms as a self-taught programmer has thus far been an interesting experience. My years hacking on stuff has left me with an ability to "see" solutions to problems, but now I need to sit down and prove the correctness of these solutions. Often, there are cases in which they don't hold water, and I don't think that's something I'd be able to realize that if I weren't reasoning about them with this level of rigor.
I found out about this when I was showing that writeup about Backdoor.SH.SHELLBOT.AA to someone from my CTF team and he mentioned that my site looked familiar
Also I apparently got hackernews'd and didn't know about it
"Investigating a Backdoor.SH.SHELLBOT.AA Infection"
It seems there's a lot of interest in continuing work on Guile Emacs, since it keeps coming up on Reddit and Hacker News and everyone is lamenting the fact that there are too few Scheme hackers and they don't seem to be interested in the project. (Someone even offered to fund it.)
Right now I'm seriously considering starting a revival project. Is anyone here interested in such a venture?
I prefer AT&T syntax and probably lift more than you do.
