Brown CS: Programming Languages

Shriram Krishnamurthi (via Lambda):

We will be making this course, Brown’s upper-level programming languages offering, available for free on the Web. People anywhere are welcome to view the lectures, read the materials, and do the assignments.

Based on what I’ve seen from Krishnamurthi before, this should be interesting.

When Documents in the Cloud Aren’t

Christopher Breen:

The interesting thing here is that while Mail will allow you to save printed PDF files to iCloud, there’s no way to access them because Mail doesn’t have a documents window. Likewise, if you were to go to and click on Mail, you’d find no storage location for anything created by Mail. It doesn’t exist.

The fallback is to access the local copy in your hidden Library folder, but that’s not really meant to be touched.

Terms of Service; Didn’t Read

ToS;DR (via Michael Lopp):

ToS;DR aims at creating a transparent and peer-reviewed process to rate and analyse Terms of Service and Privacy Policies in order to create a rating from Class A to Class E.

Great idea.
