"If we’re in the middle of a crisis (we’re not), and the nature of the crisis is misinformation (it’s not), certainly something must be done about untrue things on the internet!" https://t.co/265RqWQAvx

Advisory: Don't use fopen() on Windows. It appears there is a very bad bug where, as soon as you are doing file stuff from multiple threads, file flushes do not happen at a predictable time, even if you explicitly flush. So...

On this one, I would say there's an inflection point. As you find simpler expressions of complex software, it naturally gets faster. Until you reach the ideal zone, after which, if you want to speed it up more, you make it more complicated. That said... https://t.co/sE6bshIhM6

It turns out… ❝…even if a machine could get across with one or two passengers the expense would be prohibitive to any but the capitalist who could use his own yacht.❞ - William H. Pickering, 1910 (https://t.co/wxTEiy0pwh)

Once Leonard Cohen read a whole poem on the radio. The interviewer asked him “What does the poem mean?” Cohen paused for a long moment - and then read the entire poem again.

"i can't believe these people are wasting their time on [ambitious, expensive thing] when they could be doing [sounds good charity]" "totally. by the way, i didn't realize you were working on [sounds good charity]. what are you doing exactly?" "..." "..." "..." "oh"

This is a great diagram from Anandtech (https://t.co/c2j2THqgcW). It uses color to show the relative cost of communicating between any two cores of a 64-core Threadripper. The physical layout of chips is becoming increasingly important to performance-oriented programming!

@Jonathan_Blow @al45tair @StevenBHutton @meglio At this point I have lost count of all the things that are supposed to "solve" this problem.

Once you internalize that modern liberalism is about freeing the individual from unchosen obligations, but that a well-lived life--according to any tradition, faith, or psychology--is about living within the limits and duties of a higher calling, our current insanity makes sense.

I'm re-reading @danwwang 's 2019 letter and love this idea. We should spend more time on "setting the vision of a radically better future". https://t.co/fqN6bmxKEl

This is the most awesome demo I've ever seen. You may have heard that the Commodore 64 had a second CPU in its disk drive. But you've probably never seen anyone prove it quite like this: https://t.co/sfdfJtiaMM
