The Long Twentieth Century is a more marxist perspective of the progression of major world powers from 15th century Italy -> Netherlands -> UK -> US -> (probably east Asia). It's very dense and I haven't finished it, but the introduction and postscript are very high signal:noise.

I always remember "The Search for Modern China" by Jonathan Spence from a university class I took on "Chinese History from 1200-Present" as one of the most interesting history books I've ever read.

io_uring with a low memory barrier threaded architecture tends to be what performs the best in my tests using Rust, and it saves a ton of headaches that arise from relying on the high friction + high bloat async ecosystem.

Also, you will likely get better performance for many workloads by avoiding async. Rust async userspace schedulers add a lot of overhead that tends to be a higher cost than any context switches would have been. Measure vs threads before committing to a more complex architecture

I've had a great experience with discord. I wanted to like zulip but the mobile app was unusable. Discord also has great network effects where many people are already likely to use it, so it reduces the "shit one more chat app" reaction compared to others.

From a cold start, Learned Sort can learn a distribution model for an input dataset, and use it to sort the input, while still giving an end-to-end sort time that beats the fastest alternatives! Is nowhere safe from ML?!!

Reader view is one of my favorite features of any program. It makes me so happy to see the concept spreading. It's luxurious to pretend that webdev never turned the comparative paradise of gopher into a forced skymall experience any time you want to look something up.

One of the most frustrating things for me is how many of the reliable things about FreeBSD they completely broke in their fork. Like how mv wasn't atomic broke so many things in my tests and I realized it wasn't worth fixing for just osx because nobody uses it as a server OS

I feel lucky that I'm able to pull it off. I think it's a path that some people may have access to but the software engineering culture really puts fear into them not to do it, such as the fear of "resume gaps" (pro tip: be a "consultant" during this time and nobody bats an eye)

Not feeling work-induced time scarcity causes my capacity for deep and/or challenging conversations to go up tremendously, along with my ability to travel or work with other people's schedules. There are financial trade-offs which I happily accept :)

Taking lots of multi-month/year breaks from work. Funnily enough this led to working prospects significantly improving, too, due to more time for exploration of weird skills that I would have never been able to improve at work.

It's exciting because it doesn't fall victim to any of the well-known neoclassical unrealistic assumptions like symmetrical information, perfect competition, convex isoquant/preference/utility curves, efficient markets, etc...

Very excited that arrived, and that the matching lectures are up at . It seems to be the most credible and empirically grounded continuation of Marx, Sraffa, Keynes, Smith etc... without hiding from Okishio at all.

Learning how to use any system follows a bitonic sequence where at the beginning you learn how to use all of the features, and then you learn how now to use all of the features. When you realize complexity induces opportunity costs for actually getting things done, you reject it.

This pair of blog posts that blows up the idea that you can benchmark by running a warm-up period and then taking the last N results without looking at the underlying data are some of the best performance blog posts I’ve ever seen:

And none of the cops had masks on while walking between one row of cars from NRW to socialize with another row from elsewhere. It was like a mask-denier festival for them. It seems completely unsurprising if our spike was driven by this cop invasion.

I was told it's got a long tradition in Germany, especially in relation to larger football games where sometimes 10,000 police will be deployed to control hooligans. The acrobatics required to justify so many remote forces to kick some people out of their home made my head spin.
