We've got aliens from within, Commodore Amigas in lock-boxes, rocket tank battalions, Steve Job's glide-slope theory of tech, and much more.
This should work in iTunes. (This link http://danielbmarkham.com/podcast/rss is a podcast feed) If it doesn't work, here's a direct link to the mp3: 2021-06-04 Nerd Roundup!
|From tumors to species, a SCANDAL hypothesis||There's a theory that viruses evolve into new species. Could explain a lot of weird things, like various cancers and how sections of viruses appear so often in animal DNA code|
|Hugo the TV Troll||Serious question: How much of what we do is a con game?|
|Playing cards||Pretty cool multi-player net game. Neat idea|
|My version as a demo 2 years ago||I did something very similar. Add this to AWS Lambda for similar functionality. Compare page weights|
|For the first time, drones autonomously attacked humans. This is a turning point.||Drones are still in the "nothing to see here, folks!" category, but that might be changing. Like genetic modification, do we really have a choice not to implement?|
|The U.S. Military is startring to get really interested in Space-X's Starship||I could see 100 starships on standby. Deploy a tank company anywhere in the world in 90 minutes! If Elon gets his costs where he wants, changes a LOT of things|
|Amazon's Controversial hire to fire practice||Banding, quality-based ranking. In agile, to estimate we separate the process. Perhaps that might work here also?|
|Microsoft's Low-Code Strategy Paints a Target on UIPath and the Other RPA Companies||Not sure this writer knows what he's talking about, but this is still an interestign trend from MS|
|Steve Jobs on his glide slope theory of tech||Prescient|
|Anthropologist and sense making at work||We've covered this before. It's a nice redux from a different angle. A lot of enerds don't want to hear this, but bthat doesn't make it false|
|MLS Theory and Language||I'm going to mention this because it's just too weird not to. I spent a week poking at this essay idea, only to publish, then go to HN, then read _another_ essay that's in the same general area as this one|
