00:15 idiosyncrat_ Kidding aside, Cluj looks like a nice place.  I expect we'll hear reports.

15:56 idiosyncrat_ http://jeffreykegler.github.io/Ocean-of-Awar​eness-blog/individual/2016/08/timeline2.html
15:56 idiosyncrat_ My new blog post expands my previous timeline of the history of parsing.
16:08 idiosyncrat_ lucs: It's OK to put the typos in the public channel.
16:08 idiosyncrat_ I'm less likely to miss them that way.
16:13 idiosyncrat_ lucs: Thanks!  Fixes made.
16:26 lucs Okay, sure thing.
16:29 lucs By "left-corner" element, do you mean it's not purely top-down, and deviates from that a bit?
16:37 lucs (I guess so, but at first I thought it was an actual technical term :-) )
16:38 lucs "distressingly up-to-date", nice expression :)
16:43 lucs "⋯in favor of Earley algorithm" -- "Earley's" or "the Earley"
16:52 lucs Interesting read, as always. Thanks.

17:29 idiosyncrat_ lucs: left-corner *is* a technical term
17:33 idiosyncrat_ It's top-down except for the first child: see Grune & Jacobs p. 65.
17:34 idiosyncrat_ As I say, you could release the Irons 1961 parser today, and just *slay* them with its novelty and brilliance. :-)
17:43 idiosyncrat_ http://cs.union.edu/~striegnk/cours​es/nlp-with-prolog/html/node53.html -- skimming, this looks OK and pretty clear.
17:47 lucs D'oh! :)
17:54 idiosyncrat_ My motive for the revision was to add two threads to the history
17:54 idiosyncrat_ One re PEG, which has a much longer and more complex history than most of its users know about.
17:55 idiosyncrat_ The other re Chomsky's influence on the field.
17:55 rgrinberg joined #marpa
17:55 idiosyncrat_ These two threads interrelate, because modern non-Chomsky parsing is mainly PEG.
17:59 idiosyncrat_ It loses the brevity & focus of the 1st version, but I hope it's much richer and more informative.
19:39 rgrinberg joined #marpa
20:55 hobbs oh, that's interesting. I think I've talked with Choroba at some point :)
22:40 idiosyncrat_ joined #marpa
22:47 hobbs idiosyncrat_: the Planet Perl Ironman feed thinks you are "Jeffrey Kelger"
22:50 idiosyncrat_ I know -- I have a hard time getting changes made to it, and after a few rounds, I decided it was close enough. :-)
22:51 hobbs haha, okay
