Chaos Patch (#100)
(Open thread + links)
“Asymmetric warfare only works when the weaker party has political protection.” Cosmic evolution. Compressed exit. Closet cleaning (1, 2). On loudmouths. Power. Signals (also). Libertarianism on a knife edge. Defending Roosh (1, 2). The weekly round.
Capitalism in the crosshairs. The triad of fear. Dirty pools. Time-horizons. Left-wing capitalism. The New Economics of Oil. Give gold a chance. Arms races and regulation. LinkedIn crashes (plus context).
Trumpenführer panic report — the coarsening. Huffpo helpfully reminds its readers “Donald Trump is a serial liar, rampant xenophobe, racist, misogynist, birther and bully …” The Brooks denial deepens. The realist candidate (in this case, at least). Nobel Prize material? A Carlylean take. Unstumpable.
Dawkins disinvited. The war on comments (1, 2). Educational implosion (plus 1, 2, 3). Facebook and Twitter struggle to keep focused (also). Twitter and NRx. Gnon knows what’s happening at GitHub. The Left is embarrassing itself. Unsettled science.
Thoughts on the Reformation.
AI can’t be stopped (video). A fusion breakthrough in Germany (see also)? Submarine date centers. Israeli cyber-security. Crypto-sabotage. A bitcoin-powered browser. Deep learning on a chip. AI and Google search (also relevant). The world’s biggest robot. A visual guide to asteroid mining.
