This is fascinating: Rich Sutton on the "bitter lesson" of AI research: https://t.co/LW5TOGTIKw

Curious: do other people ever notice Twitter DMs lag? I have it reasonably often for 1-10 mins, and once or twice it's been over hours. Mostly it's a minor inconvenience, but occasionally it really changes the meaning of a conversation in a way that can be difficult to untangle

utility of advice = quality of advice x appropriateness to circumstance Just thinking: great advice can be so helpful, even when not particularly well adapted. And moderately good advice is rarely much use unless perfect for circumstance...

The Manhattan grid + subway system gamifies walking. It's a progress bar with intermediate goals. You think "Oh, I'll just walk one more stop up the line". Then realize you've walked from 2nd to 14th st. That's 20% of the way to 60th Street, so why not just go a bit further... https://t.co/MOcNqbjHFF

Something I dislike about much science communication work is that it's funded primarily as marketing, and it shows.

Forbes, doing a highly memorable - though perhaps of questionable accuracy - job of explaining the difference between a preprint and a refereed journal article.

From the @googledrive abuse policy: https://t.co/VO5ajuWgWy Not delighted by the society-wide gradient on this. Centralized gatekeeping of what you're allowed to think has an extremely poor track record. Via HN

Perhaps the most fascinating thing - of many fascinating things - about Temple Square in Salt Lake City was the way the 28-story Church Office Building towered over the Temple. Administration: the dominant myth of modern times. https://t.co/vt9GT0cRc5

The Wikipedia article on Humboldtian Higher Education is a surprisingly good short narrative account - incomplete, but with many good tidbits: https://t.co/bNp4F4S1XU (This McKinsey-Humboldt dichotomy is, for instance, a stimulating framing.)
