I refuse to believe 33D is a word. Fine, it was gettable on crosses, but try to find any use on the web that isn't a definition or a reference to Pecos Bill's girlfriend.

Following some threads about Luca Cardelli and pre-Standard ML lead me to this great (too short!) essay about Mervyn Pragnell. To quote commenter : "I hope that Universities still find corners for people like him."

A sign of how fast things are changing in machine learning: I’m at a talk where someone referred to distillation as a “standard technique” in the field. As far as I can tell, the first distillation paper is four years old.

I think my only knowledge of Blogger was from that first meeting we had after you folks were acquired, so I’ll defer to you on that. Does seem like a mistake. (We certainly cared about spam on Blogspot inside search.)

I’d argue that web search engines have considered spam-fighting a core competency (and competitive advantage) since the early days.

Robert Caro wrote about the same phenomenon of leaders in the House not leaving once they were entrenched in the 1930s in his first LBJ book. A problem then, a problem now.

This is a great piece of political reporting, detailing an open secret about state legislation in America, backed up by great information retrieval/machine learning work.

1. Yes; such calls came *before* 2016. 11 of the 13 states that have joined national popular vote compact did so before 2016. 2. Undemocratic outcomes in 40% of this century’s elections will tend to help people see a system’s flaws aren’t theoretical.
