Submission + - Elixir 1.0.0 Released (elixir-lang.org)

mothlos writes:

Elixir is a dynamic, functional language designed for building scalable and maintainable applications.

Where languages like Scala and Clojure implement concurrent, functional languages on a VM designed for imperative code, Elixir, instead, is a re-imagining Erlang on Erlang's own VM with a proven record running extremely high-availability, distributed systems. With a Ruby-inspired syntax, Lisp-inspired metaprogramming, and no-overhead compatibility with Erlang's libraries, Elixir makes a decades-honed toolset for concurrent programming more accessible than ever.

Submission + - Is Peer-to-Peer Giving the Wrong Impression?

mothlos writes: With Comcast's clash with the FCC, the term peer-to-peer is being brought up in less tech-savvy venues. In anecdotal conversations with lay folk, I have found the sentiment that "peer-to-peer" is somehow breaking the rules of how the internet works. Is the term peer-to-peer damaging to the political effort to keep the internet open and what could it be replaced with that would be more agreeable to the undereducated public?
