Leaving Sun

Starting Aug 17 I leave Sun Microsystems. My personal e-mail is igotti@gmail.com. Have fun!

PS: I have no other technical blog yet, you may look at my Livejournal blog, but it's in Russian and generally have not that much info yet

PPS: my last project - compressed object pointers is now of production quality, being reviewed and hopefully will be integrated into Hotspot workspace rather soon.

Living in nirvana

Recently I've read rather interesting life story of math professor John Wren-Lewis, who unintentionally got (and keeps for several years) nirvana-like state of mind. He calls it "eternity consciousness".

Original paper is here http://www.nonduality.com/dazdark.htm

Reverse engineering in microbiology

Interesting phenomenon in microbiology is reverse transcription. If I understand correctly, it's kind of technology used by some virii, such as AIDS virus to do reverse engineering of the DNA of the cell by the RNA (processes in cell usually goes in another directions, RNA is an intermediate step in synthesis of proteins by the DNA). Then virus able to integrate its own code into the genome of cell and use it to reproduce itself.

Genome decoding

According to this page genome isn't exactly a program, in traditional Turing machine sense, but "..contains very little unused sequences and, in fact, is a complex, interwoven network.". Another interesting fact is that "...ENCODE effort found about half of functional elements in the human genome do not appear to have been obviously constrained during evolution, at least when examined by current methods used by computational biologist.
