Open Source Extravaganza!
I’ve been quiet here lately. That’s what happens when a heavy workload blends into a long vacation.
To help myself get back in the swing of this blogging lark, I’m made today an “open source dump”. Basically, I went through all the stuff I hadn’t made publicly available before and added mirrors on github.
Most of this is incomplete, trivial, and most likely crap. Read on for links!
Actions, Objects, and Context
Nouns describe things: objects.
- The noun itself carries some description of the thing: “rabbit”
- That description can be extended through adjectives: “dark rabbit”
Nouns have a limited context. They give you a concept of a thing at a particular snapshot in time. Without more context, they are limited.
Think of full sentences:
- What does this mean? It doesn’t convey much information without more context.
- If you Google “car”, you get a lot of very broad results – but does it help you solve your problem?
- move car
- Full context, assuming a car can move. Grammatically limited, but gives a broader idea.
- You can Google “move car” and it gives very specific, contextually useful results.
Haskell Library for Forecast.io
Two of the joys of working with Haskell is how quickly code can be prototyped and how quickly it can be (safely) refactored. What follows is a quick tale of how a library for the Forecast.io weather API came to be. I’ve also released it on Hackage and github.
