2022-01-28 Nerd Roundup!
Join the fun!

Discord had a very rare crash this week, and several guests couldn't make it, but we made up for it with some of the most nerdy stories of the year so far.

Is old music killing new music? Is gravity truly quantum? If so, what's the theory look like? Both questions seem to have an answer of "yes", but we're still working through the details. Exciting times to be a nerd!

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: 2022-01-28 Nerd Roundup!

STORY BUT WHY?
Researchers build AI that builds AI Because of course
Has a new experiment just proven the quantum nature of gravity? At a fundamental level, nobody knows whether gravity is truly quantum in nature. A novel experiment strongly hints that it is. Seeing a lot of gravity research lately. Wonder why? Perhaps results of LIGO?
BASH guide Nice resource! It's referred to a lot in the reddit BASH and other expert/help forums
Is old music killing new music? Whoa. Wonder where commercial music is headed?
Navy Cryptologic Warfare Officers Cannot Do Cyber Oy vey
Silcon Valley's new obsession Fast grants. Cool idea, bro
Researchers develop a new language for quantum computing Need to look into this a bit more. Also, where the heck is the actual language? All I could find is a bunch of rewritten press releases
Lost on the next battlefield

QuASAR for the win! Whoa, never heard of this.
First time I've heard of PNT services. This is a bad news, good news, bad news, good news, bad news situation
Direct visualization of electron motion in atoms and molecules Wow! How the heck would that work?
Dinosaurs probably met their demise in June This seems oddly specific. There goes the summer vacation plans!
