  • Where the meme’s come from

      At least once a week I find myself saying out loud “Thank you Internet.” You know why? Fire memes. Memes are life, but do you know where they come from? No. You’re casual and have no idea how the internet runs or its rules. That’s why you’re here, reading this half ass “newsletter” on…

    Teach them like you’d teach a child

    Teaching AI to a machine is so over my head it hurts. We’re advancing AI at a rapid pace but some really smart people think we’re going about it the wrong way. In the good old days, we had GOFAI (Good Old Fashioned AI), that’s where you program rules for everything. I have a hard…

  • The King and Queen of Netflix

    The New King and Queen of Streaming

    Big news for President and First Lady Obama as they just signed a multi year deal with Netflix. We don’t know the financial details behind the deal, but my guess is that this is a big one. If they signed a $60M book deal a couple years ago, I can’t imagine what this is worth.…
