1970 debate between Noam Chomsky and Michel Foucault

Chomsky has written and said many things, namely on the topic of linguistics and politics. In an attempt to get an overview of it all, I searched for the term “overview of chomsky’s work” and found post on znet called A Brief Review of the Work of Professor Noam Chomsky. Just what I wanted. One sentence mentions a television debate between Chomsky and Foucault from 1970, and luckily that video was available on YouTube. I decided to watch it, because it might give a more focused and deeper glimpse of some of Chomsky’s work, to balance the more general overview I initially wanted to get.

Watched the RAMCloud video

Today I watched a video on RAMCloud. I have made an index over the various sections of the video, with direct links. You’ll find this index in the bottom of this post.

“The RAMCloud project is creating a new class of storage, based entirely in DRAM, that is 2-3 orders of magnitude faster than existing storage systems”

Notable features (in my oppinion) a fast DRAM backed key-value interface with durability, fast recovery and the potential for adding transactions.

Also, RAMCloud is open source.
