@aral I've been writing my presentations in markdown and then converting them to reveal.js slides for years. It's great! Easy to get consistent, good looking slides quickly and you can start messing with css if you want to do fancy stuff.
@Siphonay He also did a bunch of version, many before the famous one. Like this one, done with a ballpoint pen. (Taken at a recent Magritte exhibition.)
Hasbro is releasing a version of Monopoly that, for some reason, promises to take even longer to play than regular Monopoly.
Since 12% of Monopoly games already last an infinite length of time (see: https://informs-sim.org/wsc09papers/036.pdf ), we have to assume that Hasbro has increased the average length of the game from a countably infinite length (aleph null time) to an uncountably infinite (omega) length game.
i'm so mad about this. it's shady as hell
ICANN? more like ICANN't even hahaha am i right
“The technology behind the internet is not incompatible with our rights, but the business model Facebook and Google have chosen is.”
Yep, that’s Amnesty International saying that.

Some question our claim that "80% of people displaced by climate change are women." This number comes from the UN. The BBC wrote this interesting article about it: https://www.bbc.com/news/science-environment-43294221

I tried listening to Pinker's Enlightenment Now, and the couple of first chapters seemed ok, if a bit simplistic. Then he seemed to miss the whole point of Romantic critique of Enlightenment. It seems like he doesn't realize that he is arguing for an ideology. That would be a worthy goal in itself, if it wasn't masked in talk about Reason.
The IRL podcast has a pretty good explainer of surveillance capitalism, including an interview with Shoshana Zuboff.
@aral I'm just impressed if you manage to go through all of that in 10 minutes.
