Dynamic Languages take over the internet

What would happen if you were hauling a trailer down the road, and suddenly you realized that the trailer you thought you were pulling passes you on the highway. (Which I guess can actually happen, I just saw a video capture of this exact disaster, happening to a trucker). You might not feel kind of blind-sided!

This is kind of the way I feel when a technology trend sneaks up on me and suddenly I feel like I'm way behind the curve.

iconv issue

hi all,


I'm trying to build something for the Phi that depends on iconv; the library routines are present , but the following application fails when run on the Phi:

#include <stdlib.h>
#include <iconv.h>

int main () {
  iconv_t cd;
  cd = iconv_open("latin1","UTF-8");
  if(cd == (iconv_t)(-1)) exit(1);


if I build this using "icc -o iconv_test iconv_test.c" and run it on the host it return no error (exit code 0).

I have been hosting a program, started in March of 2015, called “Innovation Think” with the intent to get people exposed to technology that stimulates innovation either directly or through the exercising of the creative mind.
