Independent creators like working hard on launching a rocket with astronauts to space and then finding that big corporations like are stealing their content. You'd think would have more incentive to stop bad actors from abusing their power.

Zuckerberg did not disclose that he personally spoke with Trump in a lengthy statement about his decision. It certainly seems relevant.

Ginsberg here says, “If the student is not better than the teacher, the teacher is a failure,” but I think that takes too much agency away from the student. Dylan STUDIED. Read and listened and sponged up and stole all he could.

Another thing I learned from is the idea of symmetry. Here, you can see that you don't need both sides of the violin plot -- so I plot data from 10 years apart. Interestingly, the price distribution seems to be very similar except that the median has shifted upwards.
