The irony about human rights is too thick.

Good. Similar to points I made in a W4A keynote at WWW conference few years ago. 
Very very good point about antidepressants versus glasses.

Progress.

The whole island of Taiwan knows what it means to be oppressed. This is why, I think, there is public support in Taiwan for anyone who is oppressed.

Twitter Founder Talks President's Love of Social Media |and apologized.

More transparency and more communication doesn't lead to a better world. Huh? Who wuhhda thunk it. This is the biggest lesson of the social web--Better social media means both moderate and extremist views spread further.

In case you haven't seen this: for ML academic researchers. 
TensorFlow Research Cloud: 1000 free Cloud TPUs for open machine learning research

Complementing our announcement of Cloud TPUs today, I'm also extremely excited that Google is offering 1,000 Cloud TPU devices, each capable of 180 TFLOPS of computation, for free to researchers doing open machine learning research. That's a total of 180 petaflops of computation (for comparison, the #1 supercomputer in the world now has an Rpeak of ~125 petaflops, per top500.org). As we've talked to machine learning researchers around the world, many of them tell us that they are computation limited: they believe that they could advance their research more quickly with access to more computation. TFRC is our way of helping the open machine learning research community move even more quickly and to tackle problems that are currently computation limited (as long as they are willing to openly publish their research and share feedback with the Cloud TPU team). See the blog post for details.

Nice work in getting TFRC to this point, +Zak Stone!
