Hi @rschulman and welcome!
Indeed, an awful lot of stuff followed from Tierra!

Hi!

@shon-dee_gitlab
stumbled upon this project via comment on hacker news - thus far my take is: transputer/occam meets conway with a splash of carl hewitt?
Andrew
@walpolea
those things sound in the ballpark, but I won't answer for @DaveAckley . The most concise unfolding of t2tile project + MFM architecture is the video on the www.t2tile.org website.

forgot to mention pi calculus - regardless excited to dive in further (have been watching the update videos in reverse order haha!)

just catching up on the t2 updates, late congrats on the anniversary @DaveAckley :)

Thanks @antovsky_twitter !

I had a chance to check the archive for the wiki. @jcollard is this still alive? https://ulam-lang.org/doku.php
Andrew
@walpolea
right... Though I don't know if just ULAM is the right kind of wiki... I feel like we should have an easy place to take rough notes and refine into polished docs on all topics t2 hardware -> firmware -> mfm -> ULAM -> SPLAT -> Theory...etc
take the best of the insights we arrive at on here and make it more indexed.

Last I know ulam-lang.org was all good, just hoping for content.
@shon-dee_gitlab Hi! Thanks for visiting! I'd maybe say transputer meets cellular automata meets God playing dice.
Dave Ackley
@DaveAckley
But sure it's also 'Hewitt-adjacent' in several ways!
Andrew
@walpolea
Is ulam-lang.org a good place for beyond ULAM content?

@ajzaff
+1 to not dumping stuff into the void of gitter
Andrew
@walpolea
If we have that, it might be fun to have a topic/idea of the week to talk through and try to come up with some "on-paper" tests to try
Dave Ackley
@DaveAckley
I think it would be totally sensible to have a 'Concepts and Contrasts' section or some such, that had stuff that wasn't necessarily pure ulam syntax or whatever, but which was useful or important for any ulam programmer to grasp. Symmetries, event window, limited persistent state, links out, etc etc etc would all be game.
Andrew
@walpolea
Cool
anton mikhailov
@antovsky_twitter
I'm happy to write up stuff on symmetries if that's of help (while it's fresh in my mind :)
Andrew
@walpolea
so I have this thing where if I try to start something, and something is in my way, I try to figure out why I'm blocked and fix it... so I was having a tough time figuring out where to start in adding to the ulam-lang wiki, so I just started a Trello board as it seemed to be less hard to start scaffolding out ideas and organizing content. Please let me know if there is interest in contributing! https://trello.com/b/GwyrxRyV/robust-first-documentation

Balloon festival! Love those clear skies.

So cool!

@walpolea
Great view! I would be terrified to fly in one of those. But a good example of non-deterministic computing out in the wild! Transportation, no less

The 'mass ascensions' during the balloon fiesta are quite a thing. I was just driving by, so not very close.
Andrew
@walpolea
Wow!

Hey everyone! I wanted to share an implementation of Linear Regression I made in ulam (https://github.com/ericrosenbrown/Linear-Regression-MFM), I would love to hear any thoughts about doing learning with the MFM!
Dave Ackley
@DaveAckley
Wow, super cool!
Wanders around updating its estimate of the world around it.
Makes me think of the 'movable robust Extended Kalman Filter' from The Path to Best Effort.
