In an effort to liven up the blog a bit, I thought I would start soliciting topics from the readership. Given the large number of comments on certain past posts and the couple hundred unique hits to my RSS feed URL every day, I'm hoping that this might just work out.
My plan is to solicit topics every Friday and answer the following Friday. If volume is large then I will pick and choose. This opportunity may not present itself but I can hope. I can't promise to be on time or to not skip a week now and then, but I realize that for this to work I have to be at least somewhat punctual, so I will try my best.
As such, this is my first solicitation for topics. Please keep things on topic, which is programming and software development. I don't want to get started on current events or politics or anything of that sort! I prefer Mac-related stuff but will take anything within my sphere of imagined competence. It can be a specific question about one thing, a larger-scale question about architecture, design, or what have you, or even just a general subject area to discuss. Some examples might be how to use gdb to inspect the arguments passed to functions you don't own, why blocks in Objective-C are such a good thing, or how the ongoing multicore revolution will change the way things are done. I want this to be pretty freeform so go wild.
So let's give this a good shot and generate some interesting discussion! If you have a suggestion, leave it in the comments here or e-mail it directly to me at firstname.lastname@example.org. I will use your name unless you specifically direct me not to, so if you want to be anonymous or use a pseudonym, please say so.
Would you like to discuss about software design in terms of potentially parallelly executable processes?
