Video Of The Week: My Talk On Bitcoin, Crowdfunding, and Charitable Giving – AVC
- ~30% of operating budget for most charities was on fundraising
- new internet charities can slash the ~30% to just the cost of accepting payments
- with Bitcoin the full amount of the donation can go to the charity
- the value of Bitcoin itself is not the interesting part, the more important part is the velocity of trading; if velocity increases, the value will too.

Keynote: Why Virtual Reality Will Matter to You - Facebook Live
- our brain has a model, which it applies to actual inputs: sometimes the model overrides the actual data - e.g. color, sound, visuals.
- "reality" is subjective based on our interpretation of the signals
- current VR is sufficient to be coherent with most of our senses to provide an "immersive experience"
- we still need much higher visual resolutions; we need higher-resolution sound (easy enough); we need better haptics
- VR is finally making inroads: long-term commitment, commercial applications.. or, is that the same as we said a decade ago?

Keynote - Jacob Kaplan-Moss - Pycon 2015 - YouTube
- we have the myth of a crappy vs star programmer, what about the middle?
- inverted bell curve vs. actual world: we're average programmers, there is nothing wrong with that
- the language of the star programmer is a harmful label: it dissuades people from engaging and associating with the community; it perpetuates stereotypes; it is a "reason" to tolerate behavior that we shouldn't

Type Hints - Guido van Rossum - PyCon 2015 - YouTube
- type annotations are not enforced at runtime, only for separate type checking
- python syntax already allows the type annotation syntax
- annotations are done in separate files: easy to annotate existing code, don't need to update existing code, completely optional
- lots of subtle gotchas in implementation
