September 24, 2022

At Pooks Hill Marriott in DC for a

I Finally Reached Computing Nirvana. What Was It All For? | WIRED

September 19, 2022

Liked your piece, particularly the sentiment: “The key, finally, was to turn nearly everything in my life into emails.” Most important here is that email — as opposed to most other forms of electronic communication — is in an open, cross-platform format that’s readily parsable.

Thought the recent @ScienceMagazine podcast about the asteroid deflection mission dealt well with the effect of science on
sci-fiction and *vice-versa*. Wonder if this interplay happens in other scientific contexts?

Should “data” be singular or plural? | The Economist

September 17, 2022

Enjoyed this article! I studied Latin, but, unfortunately, now agree with the article: “It is poignant that [trivia] a word that once meant a knowledge of Latin now means a knowledge of impractical random facts.”

September 17, 2022

Great episode! Liked the discussion of “permission-less browser clipboard write” (shown at http://webplatform.news), esp. the example of a malicious website rewriting a crypto wallet address in the clipboard without the user realizing it.

However, how does a website know the clipboard contains a wallet address to overwrite, in the first place?

Does coffee increase cancer risk? | Interviews | Naked Scientists

September 16, 2022

Liked the discussion of the paper by @stevesphd on Coffee Consumption
& Cancer Risk (https://clinicalnutritionjournal.com/article/S0261-5614(22)00313-2/fulltext). However, I was surprised that the elevation of stomach acid & GERD from caffeine was not mentioned as a potential reason for the association with esophageal cancer.
