$50m to shut down a program that costs $2m annually and advances science. Harper is an idiot.

Social networks seem to be getting progressively more annoying, so a few of us put together this site that is simply a Wiki profile page for each registered person, in the hopes it will make it easier again to find the basic info on someone.

The last lecture was quite interesting and well summarised on this blog. Excerpt:
"too often in the race to compete, we learn to confuse what is hard with what is valuable. Intense competition makes things hard because you just beat heads with other people. The intensity of competition becomes a proxy for value. But value is a different question entirely. And to the extent it’s not there, you’re competing just for the sake of competition. Henry Kissinger’s anti-academic line aptly describes the conflation of difficulty and value: in academia at least, the battles are so fierce because the stakes are so small."

All recent papers posted to the Arxiv, now with a reddit-based interface. Each day it will update the list with the latest papers and you can upvote, downvote, comment, save links of interest, search, post new links, or create your own communities/arxalivs to post in or have others post links or writings of interest to them. You can de facto implement a journal this way with the editors/reviewers as the moderators.
