Gary Shteyngart’s View From Hedge Fund Land - Barron's
«We have to dismantle finance and tech as they are. These two systems have to be disbanded. What these systems are preparing us for is a world where pretty soon the helper fish are going to be replaced by algorithms. All the helper fish that exist for the sake of the bigger animal, many of them are going to go away. When the shrinks for their kids will be replaced by algorithms, that’ll be the end; there’ll be nothing left. This upper-middle class that still exists on the fringes, in parts of Brooklyn, or commutes from—what’s that place in New Jersey where everyone lives, Morristown? Once they’re done away with, what’s left? It’s just basic income and the people who own the algorithms. Do we want that?»

Concerns to software freedom when packaging deep-learning based appications.
«I just noticed that one of us tries to package deep-learning based
application, specifically it is AlphaGo-Zero based. However, this raised my concern about software freedom. Since mankind relys on artificial intelligence more and more, I think I should raise this topic on -devel.»

Opinion | Motherhood in the Age of Fear - The New York Times
«In the end I was lucky. The prosecutor agreed not to pursue charges in exchange for 100 hours of community service. My family and close friends stood by me. I was not placed on a registry of child neglecters. I didn’t lose my job. The truth is, I don’t feel that bad about what happened to me anymore. Instead I worry about all the ways our country seems to be at war with children, even as we insist our greatest responsibility is to protect them.»

The Lesson of the Château de Calberte
«We think that a fight for justice won is won once and for all. But the same battles, particularly in the social sphere, are fought over and over. In America the battles for social progress from the 1930s through the 1960s are being refought today. I worry that, as at the Château de Calberte at the end of the 14th century, we have lost the knowledge of how to construct our defenses — political and social — and we may be too weak to withstand the current assault.»

zsh-completions/zsh-completions-howto.org at master · zsh-users/zsh-completions
«The official documentation for writing zsh completion functions is difficult to understand, and doesn’t give many examples. At the time of writing this document I was able to find a few other tutorials on the web, however those tutorials only explain a small portion of the capabilities of the completion system. This document aims to cover areas not explained elsewhere, with examples, so that you can learn how to write more advanced completion functions.»
