Submission + - Obayashi to Build Space Elevator by 2050 (yomiuri.co.jp) 3

mattr writes: "Japan's Obayashi Construction announced plans to build a space elevator by 2050. They are famous for wrecking skylines with the stupidly too big bullet train station in Kyoto, world's tallest self-supporting tower Tokyo Sky Tree and just starting now, Taipei Dome. It will take a week at 200 kph for your party of 30 to reach the 36 km high terminal station, while the counterweight sails by at 96 km, a quarter of the way to the Moon."

Submission + - Google hacked? (google.com)

mattr writes: "Google.com seems to have suffered either a DNS admin mishap or hack! Access to www.google.com has been returning
"Site Update
Funnyjunk.com is being updated to a new version. Please try again later."
and search from the browser bar returns, " Not Found
The requested URL /search was not found on this server.
Apache Server at www.google.com Port 80 "
Service is available normally at 173.194.33.104.
But dns for www.google.com is poisoned and seems to me to be redirected to a server called www.l.google.com"

Submission + - Boxing in the LLRing

mattr writes: "Last week I participated in a gathering of 300 developers in Tokyo called the Lightweight Language Ring (LLRing), discussing over 20 languages and frameworks from Perl, Python and Ruby to Haskell, ML and Concurrent Clean, in a real boxing ring. It included a number of famous Japanese programmers, the creator of Ruby with news of a fork, a bot shootout, language updates, a panel on functional programming, a mysterious scifi conspiracy, and more. So I'd like to invite you to read Boxing in the LLRing. Photos on Flickr, Video on YouTube, downloads. Fight!"
