Link of the Week - Kudos for cloud programming

According to Technology Review, cloud programming is one of the top ten emerging technologies of 2010.

Do we mean cloud computing? Nope! Joseph Hellerstein, a researcher at the University of California-Berkeley, is working on a creating a cloud programming language called Bloom, which his team hopes to release in late 2010. They are also preparing a number of domain-specific demonstrations.

Erica Naone of Technology Review writes:

His big idea is to modify database programming languages so that they can be used to quickly build any sort of application in the cloud--social networks, communication tools, games, and more. Such languages have been refined over the years to hide the complexities of shuffling information in and out of large databases. If one could be made cloud-friendly, programmers could just think about the results they want, rather than micromanaging data.
