If there's one person who should get credit for making Clojure dependency management as easy as it is, it's Phil Hagelberg. Phil, known as Technomancy online, is the author of Leiningen, the Clojure project automation tool. He tirelessly works to make Clojure easier to use. And also making his own keyboard. Give him a shoutout if you catch him on IRC or Twitter, and follow him on Github.
If you want a stream of news, thoughts, announcements, and other timely posts, follow Planet Clojure. I don't often mention things that are quite so popular. But this one requires it. I've followed it for years and it's growing all the time. Plus, you can add your own RSS feed to the Planet. I follow them on Twitter as well.
A slide deck about a very interesting line of research that is trying to reformulate and simplify computer hardware so that the instruction set is much "closer to the physics". In other words, give the programmer instructions that are easier to implement in hardware so that optimizations can be performed in software.
