Easy Integration of Rich Internet Applications with Drupal - The RIA Module

This post is part of a series of where I present a solution that allows an easy integration of Rich Internet Applications in Drupal 7. I have already set the requirements of this project in the previous post : Rich Internet Applications / Drupal Integration Project Requirements

This entry describes the RIA module. This module is responsible of loading all the JavaScript and CSS resources needed by a Rich Internet Application.

For the sake of completeness, the INFO file of the RIA module is listed below

Super Cooperators By Martin Nowak

I would safely say that the summer of 2012 has been the summer of reading and playing around with different ideas about evolution, cooperation and competition. I have not heard of Martin Nowak until I read his article in Scientific American's July issue. Then, a few weeks later, I was reading about him again in Chaitin's book Proving Darwin.

Martin Nowak is a researcher in Mathematics and Biology. He spent most of his research career tackling problems about evolution and evolutionary games mathematically and through numerous computer simulations.

Proving Darwin By Gregory Chaitin

When I stumbled upon this title , I did not hesitate for a second to order it. A mathematical book on the theory of evolution and written by the the famous Gregory Chaitin on top of that. Things looked so promising and I was anxious to get the book by mail.

The first impression when I got the book in my hands was that it was very thin. Though, I did not want to let myself be fooled by the the size.

Proving Darwin aims at introducing a new science founded by Gregory Chaitin himself and called Metabiology. The book describes a toy universe of evolution. A model that,according to Chaitin, captures the essence of evolution yet it remains  simple enough to be tackeled mathematically.
