"When you work a job that presumes you will quit before too long, the tasks that are good for the company might not be good for you."

I still believe that market is a better rule than no rule, but not even a good rule.

This does not convince me otherwise. Neglecting the depth of all knowledge, skills, projects, companies and businesses just means more and more work goes to less and less progress. Turning formerly successful businesses into the turtles racing against some other Achilles, getting passed despite all the internal success reports. The way to stagnation is paved by success reports.
"...In a way new to the world, and begun by the re-orientation of companies to maximise shareholder value, quitting work is now central to what it means to have a job in the first place.

Another nonlinearity for neural network. Strange that they solve so many big problems by now and then someone comes up with an alternative right at the very basics.

Starts plausible, but still I feel like I'd rather have such a nonlinearity of high regularity and not merely continuous. So I really do not get the optimized parameters and I didn't read the full linked paper :-(

Only cause it looks like math it can still be bullshit.
What happens with power on bullshit, can be seen live now.

That interactive map is fascinating. Is it true though?

Like it or not, but I think it has some points. Simply voting every few years is no device to generate a common direction a development. More is required.

I used to share lots about #robots but then progress got uncanny and boring at the same time. Now this is a different concept, and apart from the title, why not? Exploring different form factors to solve different problems looks like a good idea.

- Wanted to verify, if I did it right, the last decades ...
- And then I often muse about that cultural bridge between reading and reading anything in a hard discipline. It's so different.
