    new sissy programming language

    Someone went and named a new programming language "Milk".

    Milk... oops! Sorry, wrong link. Here it is.

    From the article:
    “... when a core discovers that it needs a piece of data, it doesn’t request it — and a cacheful of adjacent data — from main memory. Instead, it adds the data item’s address to a list of locally stored addresses. When the list is long enough, all the chip’s cores pool their lists, group together those addresses that are near each other, and redistribute them to the cores. That way, each core requests only data items that it knows it needs and that can be retrieved efficiently.
    It is interesting that this ('when the list is long enough') doesn't slow everything down.
