The rise of blockchain has led to a renewed interest in the use of ledgers as a basic data-structure for building distributed systems.

But the use of ledgers to build distributed systems is a very old idea, playing an important role in both academic computer science (in the guise of state machine replication) and in real-world financial technology.

Pointing is an elementary interaction in virtual and augmented reality environments, and, to effectively support selection, techniques must deal with the challenges of occlusion and depth specification. Most of the previous techniques require two explicit steps to handle occlusion.

In main-memory database systems, memory can consume a substantial amount of power, comparable to that of the processors. However, existing memory power-saving mechanisms are much less effective than processor power management. Unless the system is almost idle, memory power consumption will be high.
