3-0 in favor of AlphaGo vs. Lee Sedol. I welcome our new AI overlords.
AlphaGo won its third straight game, claiming overall match victory against Lee Sedol. AlphaGo created a large territory on the board but Lee used innovative tactics to start a huge all-or-nothing kō fight and complicate the situation. In the resulting kō fight, AlphaGo prevailed. Two more games will be played to determine the final match score → goo.gl/O2c480

Let's see...to live and work globally I need Chinese, English, Russian, Arabic, Japanese, Portuguese and Spanish. To start. Perhaps a change in elementary and high school education to learn these?

Ron, since you're an orgmode user on emacs, you might be interested in this. Of great interest is the mobileorg-android app, which seems to have more features and open source. I'm going to be checking mobileorg out.

Have you tried/used mobileorg?

Video recordings of all of J.S. Bach's works: "In September 2013 we started performing and recording all of Bach’s works. The first recordings were made available on this site on 2 May 2014, followed by a new Bach recording every Friday. Each piece of music by Bach has its own page where site visitors can choose: the recording, interviews, background information or audience reactions. You can watch and listen to every single piece in its entirety. Musicians will talk about what the music does for them. Background information is provided for each work and all the facts about the recording are compactly summarised. The public section of the site has space for reactions from listeners." Unbelievably cool!
