Awaiting JavaScript

Funny diversions in continuations seen this week. They’re not new, but new to me.

Temporally Quaquaversal… er, time travel and stuff

Temporally Quaquaversal Virtual Nanomachine Programming In Multiple Topologically Connected Quantum-Relativistic Parallel Timespaces…Made Easy!“. Oscon 2008. This is really out there experimental stuff. I’d probably have thought it was all smoke and mirrors if I hadn’t already read about the reverse state monad already.

Really asynchronous JavaScript

This made me do a double take – an await and yield for JavaScript. I can’t believe I’d missed the await from last year. The description reads as though it’s CPS transformation for JavaScript, which makes perfect sense in Node.js’ callback soup.
