Submission + - Radio Free Albemuth Movie Hits Kickstarter

Eirenarch writes: The independent film Radio Free Albemuth based on Philip K. Dick's novel of the same name has started a Kickstarter campaign to fund a theatrical release.

Oh and the perks on this are great. For $50 you get the DVD signed by the director.

Submission + - Microsoft's Anders Hejlsberg Announces TypeScript (msdn.com) 1

Eirenarch writes: "Microsoft's language architect Anders Hejlsberg just announced TypeScript — a superset of JavaScript that can compile to pure JavaScript. TypeScript adds optional typing much like Google's Dart but does not have its own standard library and does not add any external code to the generated JavaScript. Most new features are in line with future proposals for ECMAScript. Yes, it is open source.

You can also try the interactive playground — http://www.typescriptlang.org/Playground/"
