Those flashes in the top-right corner look an awful lot like the way The Economist used to do it!

• This is so badass. Katie Bouman giving her TED talk in 2017 about how she, and many other scientists, astronomers, mathematicians, were planning to take a photo of a black hole. Which we all saw this past week. Katie wrote the algorithm.

Many people have made comparisons between Wikileaks and Bellingcat in the last couple of days, but it's like comparing apples and oranges. Wikileaks elicits and publishes leaked materials, we analyze open source materials and, in very rare cases, leaked data.

The article is horrifying but I saw this pic of zuck and wondered why he looked so good, so alive. Figured it was an old photo. Turns out that is the wax effigy of him in Madame Tussaud's. He is the only person whose wax figure looks less creepy & uncanny than the original person
