"There is a particular perversity in obtaining a handful of Supreme Court justices at the cost of undermining the norms of the Constitution that it will be their job to defend."

I'm very excited about the work many people at Google have been doing to develop our own custom systems for accelerating training machine learning models. Version 2 of our Tensor Processing Unit is a device that offers 180 teraflops of compute, and is also designed to be connected together with an ultra-high-speed network into a TPU Pod of 64 of these devices, offering 11.5 petaflops of compute. These systems are programmed using TensorFlow.

These TPU devices will be coming to Google Cloud as Cloud VMs with TPUs.

Rachael has done an amazing job of organizing the gPause talks at Google for the past 2 years. It was great to see her give a talk herself at Google on her new book.

"JavaScript is lighter weight and easier to pick up than Java, so it's a better fit for an introductory course, particularly when a lot of the students won't go any farther than building websites anyway. If you don't intend to pursue a career in computer science, which a lot of introductory students won't, JavaScript is more useful to know than Java."
