WR Quick fire

Posted: 11th August 2019

Whole lot of quick references this week. Mostly because I read most of these 2 weeks ago and forgot to update this.

Also I'm looking for more not-men to read so if you have any suggestions please tweet me them.

Anyway, here's a few things that've interested me over the last couple of weeks:

  • Intellectual Debt by Jonathan Zittrain. The core of the argument seems to be that AI represents a big risk because it drives towards solutions without necessarily why they work. It's a well written piece and breaks the argument down nicely.
  • Cities Skylines is Turing complete by Daniel Bali, continues the internet's drive to implement a computer in anything.
  •'s oldest sites something from my friend, Jonty: a list of the oldest sites on the domain, as recorded by Worth it just to time machine back to a time when the internet was bright and full of hope
  • Decades-Old computer science conjecture solved in two pages by Erica Klarreich, a good write up of an interesting proof.
