I want to believe. This would be phenomenal. I am a disgusting meat eater / animal killer but it's time to stop. (Can't be a vegetarian, sorry)

If the science to test the effects on the body is anywhere as flimsy as what https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Ancel_Keys did to convince the world fat is bad, we're fucked.

Interesting. MSFT couldn't keep this website in the air: https://www.iagopcaucuses.com/#/state. It's the simplest, most cacheable site I can think of. Yet, for some reason this site appears to be relying on stateful servers. Note the ARRAffinity cookie coming back from each request. This smells like a random team designed and setup the site - instead of using a company-wide service for hosting simple web sites, but run by experts.
Microsoft said the app worked but the web sites were overwhelmed by users

Bah. Servers.  Where is the margin in that?

Can someone explain to me how am I supposed to enjoy Destiny? It's a beautiful game, but the single player is just awful. I heard people don't like the story.. but I ask..what story?

Anyway, since the game is so well loved, what's the big deal about it? How exactly do I get to enjoy it? Multiplayer? Or keep trying the single player "story"?

I only played it when it just came out, presumably the expansion made it better.

The shooting feels fantastic. Absolutely everything else was garbage. I played to the end of the 'campaign', then walked away. I was briefly pulled back by the 'loot cave' exploit, which was honestly kind of fun, but they fixed that.

AlphaGo 3k MMR tryhard. #dota2
 
Can a computer master the ancient game of Go? With more possible board configurations than the number of atoms in the universe, experts have long thought it to be impossible. But a system developed by researchers at Google DeepMind, called AlphaGo, has done it.

Combining a state-of-the-art Monte-Carlo tree search with two deep neural networks, AlphaGo not only has defeated the top existing Go programs at the forefront of A.I. research, but also has defeated reigning 3-time European Go champion Fan Hui. 

The next challenge will be to play the top Go player in the world over the last decade, Lee Sedol, this March in Seoul, South Korea. To learn more, visit the Google Research blog, linked below.

This is a really fantastic article. The development of eyes lead to an explosion in the number of species and in their adaptation skills. If you feel like reading more about the evolutionary aspects of this and the body of evidence connecting the "Cambrian Explosion" to vision, see "In The Blink of an Eye". It's a great follow-up book.

I stopped reading it at 50% or so, but now I want to start again.

Kinda raising good points, this article is.
 
whatever your political affiliation, this is worth a read.  Not interested in moderating a debate over it, just putting out there for people to read. 
Members of America's Blue Tribe share far more concerns in common with the armed protestors than they may realize.

Hello Kirkland, WA! We’ve chosen your beautiful city by Lake Washington as the next location of our self-driving car testing program.

After self-driving 1.4 million miles, we’re ready to give our cars more experience driving new environments, traffic patterns, and road conditions. (And we definitely don't mind the waterfront views either!)

From today, locals may see one of our Lexus RX450h SUVs driving around North Kirkland. We’d love to hear what you think, about how we’re driving, and what you would want to do with a self-driving car! Visit google.com/selfdrivingcar to drop our team a note!

Not bad. Now let's hope to see more tech companies doing well. It may be time to buy a NASDAQ index mutual fund. hmmm.
Google got a new name and now is on the brink of a new title: The tech titan looks set to be crowned the most valuable company in the world, toppling fellow Silicon Valley heavyweight Apple Inc.

I had lots of questions about Planet Nine after reading the sciencemag article. This is an excellent follow-up.

I'm a Site Reliability Engineer and a Go developer.
Introduction
Hi. I'm a Systems Engineer, born in Brazil and living in Zurich with my wife Carla and our two boys.

Things I like to do in my free time:
  • read books. I've been reading quite a lot since I bought a Kindle. See my library in the LibraryThing.
  • write simple open source programs, mostly in the Go programming language. #golang
  • travel. Our family is slowly discovering Europe.
  • electronic games
Most of my public posts are in English, but I may occasionally write something in Portuguese. You can use a Google Chrome extension to translate such posts, if you want.
