Story of the Week: The Yellow Wall Paper
This paper presents concept and implementation of IPC functions which, implementing the message queue semantics of the specification language SDL, links the standard components of our multiprocessor system in an efficient manner, while at the same time pro-viding the interface synthesis needed by the automated gen-eration of a rapid prototype.
Speech synthesis is the artificial production of human speech
This perspective from which interpretations are formed is in many ways synonymous with what Donald Schön refers to as a normative frame or appreciative system: "The very invention of a move or hypothesis depends on a normative framing of the situation, a setting of some problems to be solved... It is only within the framework of an appreciative system—with its likings, preferences, values, norms, and meanings—that design experimentation can achieve a kind of objectivity... Designers differ with one another, and change over time, with respect to particular design judgments, ways of framing problems, and generic perspectives manifest in their choices of problem settings, means, and paths of inquiry." (Schön, 1984) This frame is a bias, but one that designers frequently make explicit—and often put aside, shift, embrace, or actively reflect upon, through a process of design synthesis. In this process, a series of often subjective business, technological, decorative, or functionality constraints are deemed to be true, and this becomes the normative frame.
