    1. 2️⃣ Unfollow everyone on social media and start over. Try to follow NO people who look like you* 📌 Follow a spread of race, gender (expression, identity), orientation, physical ability, neurodiversity, nationality, socioeconomic status. Use Tokimeki Unfollow to mindfully assess who you follow. Note about who you follow: Follows are endorsements, even if you don't see it that way. To protect our safety, many marginalised folks will often look to see who you're following. You can continue of course to follow whomever you want. And we can continue to protect ourselves by using this as a barometer. *I know you still will. I said try.

    1. What do I mean by “better”? Computing aids and encourages humanity’s noblest pursuits: science, reason, art, philosophy. Computing directly supports improving the mental health, physical health, prosperity, and happiness of all humans. Computing help us master (or at least, doesn’t intensify) our problematic tendencies: addiction, status anxiety, socioeconomic divisions, tribalism, fear, hate. The economic and intellectual horsepower in Silicon Valley and the wider tech world seems to be pointed away from these goals. For example: algorithms designed to maximize watch time, the social media outrage machine, loot boxes and other psuedo-gambling, and smartphone notifications activating Skinner-box tendencies.
    1. The last time the financial press indulged in massive coverage of BlackRock was during the 2016 U.S. presidential campaign, when numerous financial pundits were exchanging gossip about Fink’s desire and potential to be Hillary Clinton’s Treasury Secretary.

      I forgot about this.Wow blackrock may be the domino

    1. profile() = atom()

      This should be profile() = default | atom() because the httpc service is automatically started with the default profile (called default) when inets is started.

    1. which in October shuttered the online black market Silk Road and seized its $3.5 million cache of Bitcoin. "The FBI is now one of the largest holders of Bitcoin in the world," Andresen says.

      [ ] Fact Check

      Is this true? We NEED to either remind the FBI they seized more money but had weak hands.


      This isn't true and we need to call out Gavin Andresen on providing lies to reporters.

    2. "You want to know about my amazing physicist brother?" says Arthur Nakamoto, Satoshi Nakamoto's youngest sibling, who works as director of quality assurance at Wavestream Corp., a maker of radio frequency amplifiers in San Dimas, Calif.

    1. It also adds safety through a property called parametricity. If we pretend that there are no infinite loops or exceptions (it’s okay to do that, so we will do it throughout this article), then the function is actually fully determined by its type. In other words, if we see the type a -> a, we know that the corresponding value must be the identity function.

      If this would be the first time I came across parametricity, I wouldn't understand what it means.


      In programming language theory, parametricity is an abstract uniformity property enjoyed by parametrically polymorphic functions, which captures the intuition that all instances of a polymorphic function act the same way.

      That is, a function with the type signature a -> a has only one implementation: it can only return its input. In a similar fashion, a -> b -> a will only return the first argument and ignore the second. And so on.

    1. builtins.attrValues set

      TODO: Is this the same as lib.attrsets.attrValues in nixpkgs?

    1. lib.attrsets.attrValuesattrValues :: AttrSet -> [Any]

      TODO Is this an alias to builtins.attrValues?

    2. TODO: document lib.mkIf

      Found a description in the NixOS manual:

      The special function mkIf causes the evaluation of the conditional to be “pushed down” into the individual definitions, as if you had written:

      config = {
        environment.systemPackages = if
      config.services.httpd.enable then [ ... ] else [];
    3. TODO: document lib.mkDefault

      Not mentioned in any of the manuals (i.e., nix, nixpkgs, NixOS), only the NixOS options page has 1 mention:

      Some promising search result (in the order of relevance):

      From source:

        mkOverride = priority: content:
          { _type = "override";
            inherit priority content;
        mkDefault = mkOverride 1000; # used in config sections of non-user modules to set a default

      It seems that all the mkOverride calls set up a priority for certain actions.

    4. String -> Any -> { name = String; value = Any }

      Fix: add semicolon after last Any. (same above in the main type signature)

    5. Attribute-Set

      This should read "Attribute Set Functions". Nowhere else is attribute sets spelled as "attribute-set".

      edit: Alright, "attribute-set" is used in total of 4 times, whereas "attribute set" is used 112 times.

    1. They record where you come from, what pages you visit, how long you stay on each, where you click and where you go next.

      imagine if this information was available to you instead

    1. StorexHub is our offline-first API and plugin platform that allows you to work with Memex data outside of the browser. But it also works between different apps, making it a bit like an offline-first Zapier. You can query Memex data, listen to changes or write to its database.
    1. Nototo is a spatial note-taking app. It lets you build an ever-expanding, topographical map containing your notes and writing. The app is designed this way to take advantage of another aspect of spatial interfaces: our brains remember spaces better than raw information. In this regard, Nototo is like a software manifestation of a memory palace.

    1. nix path-info shows information about store paths, replacing nix-store -q. A useful feature is the option --closure-size (-S). For example, the following command show the closure sizes of every path in the current NixOS system closure, sorted by size: nix path-info -rS /run/current-system | sort -nk2

      The Nixpkgs pull request template has a checkbox "Determined the impact on package closure size (by running nix path-info -S before and after)" but there is only 4 instances of path-info in the Nix manual (and none in the Nixpkgs manual).

      nix --help says

      path-info        query information about store paths

      so the command works at the bottom but what switches are available for example? From the examples, -r and -S is valid but where are they documented?

      nix path-info -rS $(readlink -f $(which vim))

    1. How does Perma.cc work? You give Perma.cc the URL of the page you want to preserve and cite. Our software visits that URL, preserves what's there, deposits it into our collection, and gives you a unique URL (e.g. "perma.cc/ABCD-1234") - a "Perma Link" - that points to the record in our collection. You then can use that Perma Link in your citation to give readers access to a stable, accurate record of the source you referenced, even if the original disappears from the web.

      how does this compare to other web archive tools? is it really "permanent"? any disadvantages of this tool?

    1. why is board game so popular in Germany? does this award contribute to the healthy development of this market?

    3. Blood Pressure Monitors: High blood pressure is a well-known health risk factor, especially when combined with smoking, obesity, or genetic markers. You can get this measured at your doctor’s, a health clinic, or even using an at-home monitor. Check out my guide to blood pressure tracking
    1. Here’s a report (a) from a person who I trust a lot describing how they cut their sleep from 8 hours to 6.3 hours a day and sustained it for more than a year. Here’s a detailed story (a) with many practical tips from a friend of mine who experimented with many different ways of sleep reduction, including hardcore polyphasic sleep, and settled on the same 6.3 hours of sleep per day schedule. Here’s the best general overview (a) of these styles of sleep that I found.
    1. I recommend those that Michael Nielsen follows, and this list from Prof. Katharine Hayhoe. Here are some who apparently advise Greta. You should definitely read the IPCC reports, as well, and take courses by real climate scientists, like this one.
    1. sometimes called the Physical Church-Turing Thesis: the statement that our laws of physics can be simulated to any desired precision by a Turing machine (or at any rate, by a probabilistic Turing machine).

    1. This is one reason I was glad to come across Reframing Superintelligence: Comprehensive AI Services As General Intelligence by Eric Drexler, a researcher who works alongside Bostrom at Oxford’s Future of Humanity Institute. This 200 page report is not quite as readable as Superintelligence; its highly-structured outline form belies the fact that all of its claims start sounding the same after a while. But it’s five years more recent, and presents a very different vision of how future AI might look.
    1. These include DOM mutation breakpoints and inactive CSS rule indicators in the DevTools, several new CSS text properties, two-value display syntax, and JS numeric separators.
    1. Mozilla’s RR RR is an advanced debugger that aims to replace GDB on Linux. It offers the full state recordings of the application so that you can replay the action backwards and forwards (similarly to Time Travel Debugging).
    1. I also recommend watching some talks by Evan Czaplicki, Elm’s creator, to give you an idea of how he and the Elm community think. These videos are really good: The life of a file What is success? The hard parts of open source
    1. Aspiring to canonicity, one fun project would be to take the most recent IPCC climate assessment report (perhaps starting with a small part), and develop a version which is executable. Instead of a report full of assertions and references, you'd have a live climate model – actually, many interrelated models – for people to explore. If it was good enough, people would teach classes from it;
    2. The Elements of Style
    3. Perhaps most prominently, the creator of the SuperMemo system, Piotr Wozniak, has written extensively about the many ingenious ways he uses memory systems

    1. Once HTML5 allowed rich interactivity in browsers, many libraries arose to provide interactive 2D plots for web pages and in Jupyter notebooks, either using custom JS (Bokeh, Toyplot) or primarily wrapping existing JS libraries like D3 (Plotly, bqplot)

      hmm, could probably use it in blog? Nice to provide an image too though, but I guess as long data is in JS, it's easy to reproduce?

    1. The question posed in the present headline was intentionally provocative. You cannot fall asleep faster, but you can fall asleep fast. All you need to do is to wait for the right time. Instead of trying to fall asleep faster, go to sleep later, and fall asleep fast.

      hmm. maybe try that? wonder if I could have sort of poly sleep one day per week?

    2. For more see Excessive sleeping.
    3. For a visual illustration of circadian and homeostatic components, see section Two-component sleep model in SuperMemo.

    1. The beer was just as cold at Dice Bar, a lively corner dive with worn leather booths and a homey atmosphere. I got a thick pint of D’Arcy’s Dublin Stout for 4.80 euros. A couple of new friends I made, Josh and Keith, took me to Grogan’s Castle Lounge, where we found a freewheeling gathering; we caroused and drank in the street with about a hundred other people. After a crawl that also included The Bar With No Name and Garage Bar, we collapsed at a table at Zaytoon, a busy late-night Iranian restaurant that’s something of a Holy Grail for Dublin barhoppers.

    1. There are alternative ways to implement a game loop in JavaFX. A slightly longer (but more flexible) approach involves the Timeline class, which is an animation sequence consisting of a set of KeyFrame objects. To create a game loop, the Timeline should be set to repeat indefinitely, and only a single KeyFrame is required, with its Duration set to 0.016 seconds (to attain 60 cycles per second). This implementation can be found in the Example3T.java file in the GitHub repo.

    1. You should suspect motivated stopping when you close off search, after coming to a comfortable conclusion, and yet there's a lot of fast cheap evidence you haven't gathered yet—Web sites you could visit, counter-counter arguments you could consider, or you haven't closed your eyes for five minutes by the clock trying to think of a better option. You should suspect motivated continuation when some evidence is leaning in a way you don't like, but you decide that more evidence is needed—expensive evidence that you know you can't gather anytime soon, as opposed to something you're going to look up on Google in 30 minutes—before you'll have to do anything uncomfortable.

      Keeping these suspicions in mind, how should we improve agile decision making?

    1. Québec a refusé le droit de parole à des groupes citoyens et à des organismes critiques du recours aux pipelines et de l’exploitation des sables bitumineux dans le cadre de la commission parlementaire qui étudie le projet d’inversion de l’oléoduc 9B d’Enbridge. En raison des délais très courts entre l’annonce de la tenue de la consultation et son début, d’autres n’ont tout simplement pas eu le temps de se préparer.

      Il me semble avoir déjà vu ça quelque part
