not a beautiful or unique snowflake


Computer programmers only: I saw a post by LJ author Brad Fitz about this clever associative-array implement he was using called Judy, which tries to be fast yet minimize storage. I looked into the docs and thought it sounded pretty cool, but then noticed its description of why hash tables aren't so great seemed to not be talking about the type of hash table I always use. So I went and did a much more thorough performance/space analysis including pretty pictures.
