The links of August

Like every blogger, I probably should start collecting links to interesting stuff. Posting them on FB is nice, but FB has a rather short half-life of content.

Science and semi-science

Financial Crisis of 2015: written in 2011.

Predictability of Android lock patterns: Not as secure as you’d imagine.

Sex and cognition: It’s complicated. Very, very complicated. Seems like jumping to any conclusion whatsoever would be wrong.


Sabaton – Poltava

“I love you” – “Shiny”: Princess Leia x Mal Reynolds

Random things

Tesla automated car charger: another toy for rich kids. (All other comments by me would reference a certain kind of animation.)

Antifragility: Nassim Taleb furiously promoting buzzwords.

Military spending is like Christmas: An interesting detail to the Silicon Valley story.
