James Grenning and Jon Kern join the roundup today as we tour a cornucopia of nerd news from the previous week. At the end, James takes us on a tour of a cool new app he's using to do online coding training.
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: 2021-06-11 Nerd Roundup!
|Eric W and UAPs||Interesting watching him come around on this issue. Mainstream science is changing opinion here|
|Neural Actor: Neural Free-view Synthesis of Human Actors with Pose Control||One of many pieces for the fully fake universe is coming into place|
|The Military’s Mobile Nuclear Reactor Prototype Is Set To Begin Taking Shape||It's about time. This is only 30-40 years later than it should have been (along with reusable rockets)|
|Publish and Perish||Detailed and convincing look at how the "game of science" has diverged so far from science itself|
|Famous Feynman quote||Something probably needs to be added to this about kooks and cross-disciplinary behavior. The process of never admitting you're wrong is a gradual one, not a yes/no switch|
|Nuclear clocks could out do atomic clocks as the most precise timepieces||This is some truly amazing stuff|
|Quatum leap caught in the act||(related)|
|Where do meteorites come from? A new study challenges popular theory||Where is this mystery planet? Theory of the planet/sun that comes thru every now and then and wipes out species might be relevant to this|
|Why Zebras Were Never Domesticated||My dreams of a pet zebra dashed. Interesting that's it's technically possible and that it's been tried/done so many times before. Cool pics|
|Somehow This Robot Sticks to Ceilings by Vibrating a Flexible Disc||What sort of evilness is this?|
|The pedantic checklist for changing your data model||Motherhood and apple pie, but good to keep around for folks who haven't been here|
|Introduction to Philosophy: God, Knowledge and Consciousness||Interested in trying one of these, comparing it to the Great Courses stuff I've been consuming foerever|
|Wingman Software||Gather town looks cool! Let's walk thru it and see what James has been doing|
