Continuing my latest blog series: learn about a second way to interpret normal vectors and their transformation properties! reedbeta.com/blog/normals-inve

This doesn't mean much since there is very little chance for the House to vote for it, or Trump to sign it. But it's nice to see anyway. arstechnica.com/tech-policy/20

This sounds like a great course, and something like it should be part of every undergrad CS program (ideally woven into other CS courses as well).

My college SwEng course was in the top 3 most useful-in-practice classes I took. (Others being architecture & compilers.)

Happy evening! Enjoy the nice weather!

Spring in the PacNW is like:
"Oh it's nice today, I don't need my hoodie"
*2 minutes later*
"Oh I should've brought my hoodie"
———
"Oh it's gray today, I don't need my sunglasses"
*2 minutes later*
"Oh I should've brought my sunglasses"

A: The grafyard.

Dinner at Chez Reed tonight: white wine herb marinated chicken; pasta with grilled red pepper, asparagus, and alfredo 😋

A cool example of human evolutionary adaptation: the Bajau people of SE Asia apparently acquired a gene mutation for a larger spleen, enabling them to hold their breath longer and dive deeper. seattletimes.com/nation-world/

Happy ! Hope y'all have a restful weekend! 😸

This sounds like an interesting way of threading the needle. I obviously don't love the idea of ads showing up in my browser, but keeping the personalization private and client-side is maybe a non-terrible way to do it. arstechnica.com/gadgets/2018/0

Adulthood is:
• Buying the smallest package of arugula you can find, which is still like a cubic foot of arugula
• Using approximately 2% of it before it starts to liquefy
• Throwing it out
• Repeating this process until you die

Some interesting thoughts on how AI computer vision systems might one day be used to anonymize / obfuscate video in real time, with downstream systems processing sparse metadata rather than raw video. imgtec.com/blog/when-humans-do

I'm looking for contracting opportunities, and would like to know if the fediverse has any.

My skills: I am familiar with GTK, the Web, Python, Git, free software in general, and much more. I have a BSc, Computer Science. enjoy efficiently computing answers to problems, as well as designing UIs that are instantly familiar to your users. And if pressed I can do *some* graphic design (e.g. my avatar here/Odysseus's app icon).

Please DM me if interested.

And please boost this toot!
