Tim Ferriss: Why you should throw out your five-year plan
"I like pushing myself to the limit and pushing the envelope, and in my mind that is not really compatible with a reliable long-term plan," says Ferriss. "I generally treat my life as six-month projects and two-week experiments of various types. Then I take the most attractive door that pops up, and rinse and repeat."

The Senate is about to vote on whether to move ahead with Judge Kavanaugh’s nomination. I’m heading to the Senate floor to vote no.

The ABA is re-opening its evaluation of Judge Kavanaugh’s fitness to serve as a judge. Voting to confirm him under this cloud, and so many others, would be beyond reckless. https://t.co/2FnT2pp8Mx

Gamasutra - A Real-Time Procedural Universe, Part Two: Rendering Planetary Bodies
In Part One of this series I explained how to use a function based on Perlin noise and fractal Brownian motion (fBm) to dynamically generate any point on a planetary body from a set of coordinates. This article will focus on how to render those planetary bodies at real-time speeds using my own spherical version of the ROAMing (Real-time Optimally Adapting Mesh) terrain algorithm. For those of you who read Part One and downloaded the demo I provided, make sure you download the latest source code and Win32 executable files. I've made some significant performance improvements since then, and they are explained in this article.

Disinformation, ‘Fake News’ and Influence Campaigns on Twitter - Knight Foundation
This is a bad look for Twitter. The company suggests it is putting significant effort into cleaning up the health of the platform, but this study suggests the vast majority of fake news outlets that were prominent on Twitter prior to the 2016 election are still prominent, and remain heavily reliant on bots. In an era in which anyone can create a "news" story, it will always be difficult for platforms to draw lines between what is allowable free speech and what is not. This is particularly true for Twitter, which thrives on headlines and the emotional responses the create. But, this study suggests Twitter's efforts to improve the quality of discourse may be disingenuous, which suggests MAU or revenue motives may be winning the day.

Don’t sign a CLA | Drew DeVault’s Blog
A large minority of open-source projects come with a CLA, or Contributor License Agreement, and require you to sign one before they’ll merge your patch. These agreements typically ask you to go above and beyond the rights you afford the project by contributing under the license the software is distributed with. And you should never sign one.

Free and open source software licenses grant explicit freedoms to three groups: the maintainers, the users, and the contributors. An important freedom is the freedom to make changes to the software and to distribute these changes to the public. The natural place to do so is by contributing to the upstream project, something a project should be thankful for. A CLA replaces this gratitude with an attempt to weaken these freedoms in a manner which may stand up to the letter of the license, but is far from the spirit.

A CLA is a kick in the groin to a contributor’s good-faith contribution to the project. Many people, myself included, contribute to open source projects under the assumption that my contributions will help serve a project which continues to be open source in perpetuity, and a CLA provides a means for the project maintainers to circumvent that. What the CLA is actually used for is to give the project maintainers the ability to relicense your work under a more restrictive software license, up to and including making it entirely closed source.
