Subscribing to The Cognicast
As we move to complete the technical infrastructure work around the merger of Relevance and Metadata Partners into Cognitect, we will definitely be providing a subscription feed for The Cognicast. In the meantime, you can be sure not to miss an episode by continuing to subscribe to ThinkRelevance: The Podcast via the existing feed. All new episodes of The Cognicast will be published via these existing channels, and when we do get a new feed, we'll make the transition seamless.
You can send feedback about the show to firstname.lastname@example.org, or leave a comment here on the blog. Thanks for listening!

Episode Cover Art:
-  The Final Countdown reached #1 in 25 different countries. The opening riff was created using an analog Roland JX-8P synthesizer, a favorite of artist Gary Numan.
-  During OMD's earliest years they effectively crashed in a corner of Gary Numan's tour bus.
-  The folks at TOPLAP have interesting views on live-coding as it relates to art and music.
-  The idea of session snapshots did not originate with Mathematica. Indeed, languages like Smalltalk and APL were designed with the snapshot model in mind.
-  There are many who see file-centric programming as archaic and are exploring (and have explored) various ideas for circumventing it, including, but not limited to: iconic syntax, program composition via query, and environment snapshots.
-  Chris Granger wrote a wonderful post about symbolic programming.
-  Manuel Woelker wrote an interesting blog post about the similarities between Clojure, Git, and CouchDB data structures in his post Persistent Trees in git, Clojure and CouchDB.
