Is it a Post-Open Source world now that the mega-clouds are here? We share our thoughts on this renewed idea.
- C++ Developer Feedback
- Steve T on Twitter — I do have a question about the latest episode; there was a lot of talk about code being safe.
- What is memory safety? — For the purposes of this post, we are generally considering whether a program execution is memory safe or not. From this notion, we deem a program to be memory safe if it all of its possible executions are memory safe, and a language to be memory safe if all possible programs in the language are memory safe.

- Nvidia’s $40 billion Arm acquisition is about bringing AI down from the cloud — Nvidia’s $40 billion acquisition of Arm is a hugely significant deal for the tech world, with implications that will take years to unravel spanning many areas of the sector.
- Your Language Sucks, It Doesn’t Matter — The central thesis is that the actual programming language (syntax, semantics, paradigm) doesn’t really matter. What matters is characteristics of the runtime — roughly, what does memory of the running process look like?
- Post-Open Source — Imo, open source as a community endeavor is falling apart right before our eyes, and being replaced by open source as Big Corp entrenchment strategy. I mean it’s been happening for a while, but seeing Mozilla sinking like this is just driving the point home for me. FOSS is dead
