In many ways I sympathize with the author of this article.  However, any pursuit involves sacrifice, and any systemic bias against such sacrifice will always be overthrown by those willing to make the sacrifice.

The extent to which I perceive this as a problem, and the extent to which I thus agree with the article, is that it creates imbalance of political power; primarily male (or more specifically, non-parenting male or female) political representation is of course unfair and self-perpetuating.  I approve of affirmative action to this end, but any solution is ultimately just a weak compromise among two equally unfair and divisive extremes.

In case you didn't already know.

Fascinating article. Elucidates how human memory works; it doesn't work how you think it does.

Apple's "Macroscalar" patents for hardware co-designed auto-vectorization are interesting.

P.S. The article is not helpful. I had to click through to the patents to understand the technology.

AMD is unwavering on ISA virtualization and GPU-as-a-first-class-processor. It seems compelling (as it has been for a long time), but AMD's priority #1 should be to ship this stuff in a next-gen game console. I don't see it taking off otherwise. Anyone taking bets on who is building the next-gen XBox/PlayStation?

A precursor to The Great Intel Overthrow?

Well written article, though probably news to you if you're up on the current state of AI.
