What are the lesser known but cool data structures ? – Stack Overflow
: some gems here

I remember when Skip Lists were the next big thing (first heard of them at a conference in ’93). Now it’s all consistent hashing and whatnot. Young folk, don’t know they were born etc. Do love consistent hashing though and had a real (ish) use for it recently.
funny that consistent hashing didn’t appear in that list. Maybe it’s just de rigeur for Stack Overflowers to know about it ;)
