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. Frankly speaking the campaign is not doing very well and it seems like geek websites have not been paying attention. Did Slashdot readers know about the movie and the campaign?

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/"

Submission + - Xamarin: "Android Ported to C#" (xamarin.com)

Eirenarch writes: "Xamarin has just announced that they got the Java part of Android ported to C# via machine translation. The resulting OS called XobotOS is available on Github. They claim some serious performance gains over Dalvik. For them this is an experiment that they are not planning to focus on but they will be using some of the technologies in Mono for Android."
