BTW I woke up this morning with a ridiculous thought going through my brain, "There are two Turing machines inside you..." While still trying to figure out which way was up, I followed it up with, "Oh no. But I'm out of infinite tape." ... Brains are weird.

Out of nowhere the warnings flashed red on his screen. David cursed as he ripped his oxygen mask from his sweat drenched face. He couldn't get timing closure on the design.

He was barely hitting 1.1GHz, and his goal was 1.5GHz. It was likely going to take weeks to untangle the longest paths causing the delays. They might even need to re-architecture some pieces.

I just thought of a cake in the shape of a Hilbert curve to optimize for the best part of the cake: the edges, then I discovered someone already made it! I'm glad that there are brains out there that think about the same stuff as me.

'It'll be simple,' he said, voice barely shaking. 'Run in, grab the treasure, run out.'

'What about the monsters?' she replied. 'What about the dragon?'

'Well ... we'll move too fast for them, thanks to this.' He hefted his newly purchased spellbook. 'And you have the sword if anything goes wrong.'

'I do not feel confident I could take on a *dragon*!'

'We won't have to!'

I really like this idea by @LicenseZero@twitter.com -- coop-like orgs for your software that doesn't need the overhead of foundations or incorporation to build a sort of business that can do, say, dual-license software and have equal pay across all members for it! xlcollaborative.com

BREAKING: a federal judge has ruled that suspicionless searches of travelers’ cell phones, laptops, and other electronic devices when we cross the U.S. border are unconstitutional.

Is there a copyleft/open source license for "only worker-owned organizations can use this for profit"? I feel like that's really what we need.

I had not heard of the "Business Source License" concept before:

At least they're not trying to be Orwellian with "free", "open", "community", etc. It's basically what it says on the tin.

Are there any incremental computation systems that treat inputs not as mutable cells, but model the whole system as a persistent data structure, and updates create a new, structure-sharing instance?

Laser-Based Audio Injection on Voice-Controllable Systems
Light Commands is a vulnerability of MEMS microphones that allows attackers to remotely inject inaudible and invisible commands into voice assistants, such as Google assistant, Amazon Alexa, Facebook Portal, and Apple Siri using light. In our paper we demonstrate this effect, successfully using light to inject malicious commands into several voice controlled devices such as smart speakers, tablets, and phones across large distances and through glass windows.

> THE URGENT NEED FOR WORKER-OWNED MEDIA

> This is capitalism’s fault. Many people think capitalism is about “markets,” but the more central and destructive feature is the question of who owns capital: Is it workers and the public at large, or is it a small class of capitalists? If workers owned their companies, many of these tragedies wouldn’t happen.
