BeyondProxima.com is a pretty neat interactive star map! And gives a clue as to what happened to our understanding of local space after Hipparcos.

We found a whole bunch of dim red dwarfs that lie between the brighter white/yellow/blue stars sort of like shrubbery between the tall trees in the forest.

I wonder what other dimmer, smaller objects there might be?

Great article on V8 JS engine's "pointer compression", making use of the existing 2-4 GiB heap limit to rewire 64-bit object pointers into 32-bit offsets while retaining the ability to tag 31-bit small integers in the same slots.

Saves HUGE amounts of memory in Chrome and can improve runtime performance despite the additional cost of "decompression".

The sooner that people who are thinking about replacing Zoom realize that the problem isn't one of software but of infrastructure, the better.

The reason Zoom works so well on a technical level is that they have a lot of infrastrutcture to support the downmixing of streams- including a ton of processing power, as well as very good bandwidth between their data centers.

You could build an equilvient program, but without the hardware and connectivity behind it, it won't be as good.
