This is a feature cast.
The hacker word of the week this week is cycle.
A large amount of listener feedback, almost all with links. Here is the audio of the NPR show that [Si] dragon mentioned. And here’s the NRK news story Tor sent in. And here is the paper that Jon mentioned on the problem with multi-threading. Here’s also a link to a clearer explanation of the dining philosophers problem.
The feature is a Hacking 101 segment on scripting languages.
