Code Bubbles Project: Rethinking the User Interface Paradigm of Integrated Development ... - 5 views

  • A bubble is a fully editable and interactive view of a fragment such as a method or collection of member variables. Bubbles, in contrast to windows, have minimal border decoration, avoid clipping their contents by using automatic code reflow and elision, and do not overlap but instead push each other out of the way.
  •  
    We propose a novel user interface metaphor for code understanding and maintanence based on collections of lightweight, editable fragments called bubbles, which form concurrently visible working sets.

Google vs Xerox on R&D | Computerworld Blogs - 0 views

  •  
    Google does R&D but has no dedicated researchers or formal lab organization. Every engineer is considered part of the virtual R&D team and is expected to donate 20% of his time - about one day a week - to research.

    Xerox takes the traditional approach, investing in a separate R&D function that includes basic research ... what makes each approach successful?
  •  
    Not really a fair comparison -- what has Google's R&D produced? The Android?

Detours - intercepting Win32 functions - 0 views

  • Transactional model for attaching and detaching detours.
    • Joel Bennett
       
      Transactional ... aspects. This is crazy impressive.
  • Detours is a library for instrumenting arbitrary Win32 functions on x86, x64, and IA64 machines. Detours intercepts Win32 functions by re-writing the in-memory code for target functions. The Detours package also contains utilities to attach arbitrary DLLs and data segments (called payloads) to any Win32 binary.
  •  
    Detours is a Microsoft Research project which exposes a transactional model for intercepting arbitrary Win32 functions by rewriting the in-memory code and attach an arbitrary payload to any binary.

Volta - Microsoft Live Labs - 0 views

  • design and build your application as a .NET client application, then assign the portions of the application to run on the server and the client tiers late in the development process. The compiler creates cross-browser JavaScript for the client tier, web services for the server tier, and communication, serialization, synchronization, security, and other boilerplate code to tie the tiers together.
  •  
    Volta is to .Net what the Google Web Toolkit is to Java ... except it goes *way* further, because it lets you write a multi-tiered application as a rich-client app and then choose to have the client portion "compile" to HTML+Javascript ...

Zotero - A Web-Generation Research Tool - 0 views

  •  
    Impressive Firefox extension helps you collect bibliographic & research information from sites like Amazon, Library websites, Journal sites, etc.  The ultimate bibliography building tool: you no longer need to copy all this out of books or off web pages ... Zotero can export/import BibTeX, RIS, Refer/BibIX, RDF, MODS, etc. and can even create APA, MLA, or Chicago style citations pages for import (as RTF) into your favorite rich text editor!
  •  
    Imports bibliography data from an astonishing list of sites ( http://www.zotero.org/translators/ ) via RDF and microformats ( http://www.zotero.org/documentation/compatible_standards_and_software ).  It uses the mozStorage API (backed by a SQLite database), and it's all open source ( http://dev.zotero.org/docs/ ).
