- Science Friday
- The Moth (itunes)
- *Camp, Cars, Cockroaches, and the Kremlin. I really liked Meg Wolitzer’s story. Some things it’s about: enjoying an experience rather than caring about achievement; becoming best friends with someone you’re jealous of (which seems really hard! but it’s something you can just do. it’s a powerful moment in the story), with curiosity helping?
- Snow White and the Screaming Meemies
- Live from the The Moth GrandSLAM
- Arthur Bradford & Laura Gershman
- Books (finished the first two – hopefully will write up some thoughts about these soon)
- Aurora, Kim Stanley Robinson
- A Curious Mind: The Secret to a Bigger Life, Brian Grazer and Charles Fishman
- *Rationality from AI to Zombies
- News articles with contexts? http://polytopix.com/editorial/
- Learned how to use git branches.
- Figured out how to download arXiv from the command line. A foray into the robots exclusion standard. ($1=folder, $2=arxiv id)
wget -e robots=off –user-agent=Mozilla/1.2 –directory-prefix=$1 http://arxiv.org/pdf/math/$2
- *What I wish I knew when I was learning Haskell : GOLD MINE of Haskell knowledge
- Lenses: Updating records without lenses is really clunky. But with lenses, it’s as easy (I think) to get/set things in Haskell as in other languages, plus there’s a lot more flexibility.
