There were some interesting posts .... something like compiled java
was mentioned several times.

Often one can find really fresh ideas in such, but the signal to noise 
ratio (sadly) makes the threads unfollowable for grown-up and/or busy folks.

Hey, I'm 23 and don't raise that much hell. =P Yeah, what can we do to raise the signal to noise ratio on the internet?
