Chill Ideaz Jay Beek Rocksuperstar0Here's the latest update of my Engagers circle. The last version of this circle was close to full, so I started it again from scratch. This circle includes people who have recently engaged with one of my posts in the form of +1s, comments and public reshares.I might have missed some people because of limitations of the Google+ interface. Fortunately, the next release of +Circloscope on June 28 is likely to include new features that make circles like this one much easier to create.I've included 100 guest members in this circle, taken from my Favourites circle, which I haven't shared in a while.Like my previous circle share, this is a Showcase circle! What this means is that everyone is invited to leave a comment on (the original post of) this circle share containing a link to one of your own posts. Ideally, this should be something that you posted recently and that you are particularly pleased with. (Don't post spam though; I will delete it.)2013-11-24 00:22:24405014CC G+

Yeah, shoddy reporting again. Google being 61% white is well below the overall US demographics. So actually to the extent that there is a bias/trend in their hiring it is for Asians. Google is 30% Asian, while the US is just under 5%... although even that suffers from a bias in the applicant pool, because Asians get 8% of the CS degrees. Given that African American's make up over 11% of CS degrees (2% of Google employees) and Hispanics make up over 7% (3% of Google employees) and whites make up 67% of CS degrees, it would seem to be as though Google's racial bias is heavily favouring Asians at the expense of all the other major ethnicities, but particularly African Americans.

It'd be interesting to compare these numbers to the numbers from the applicant pool.

It is 2014 and I have to use a Java applet produced by Oracle tools to approve budgets. There must be some COBOL in there too.

Just so that we are clear: Java applets are an obsolete technology.

Evie Wyld is one of the most celebrated authors of her generation. She makes about £8,000 per year from writing novels. If you are a young author, you are probably lucky if you can match her success. These big publishers give back to the author about 12.5% (mostly through an advance), keeping the rest... With the same sales, as a self-published author with Amazon, Wyld would make making £45,000 a year (70%).

It seems to me that the author making 70% is the fair thing... the difficult part in making a book is not the marketing, editing or cover... the bulk of the work is done by the author... really... how is that even in question?

Unsurprisingly, many authors are trying to self-publish and they like it...

" 25% of writers had published something themselves. (...) Eighty-six per cent of those who had self-published said they would do so again.

A friend is telling me that POWER8 processors might have a bright future in server rooms... with affordable servers coming up. Thoughts?

For my research, I want to buy ARM-based servers and load them up with Linux. Does anyone has experience with such beasts? What should I buy?

What about this $326 kettle? It has no feature, it leaks and it is noisy. 

Who buys these things?

I was shopping for a new toaster. Apparently, people pay $350 for a made-in-China KitchenAid toaster.

"My observation will not surprise an expert programmer… However, many others are unaware that their mental model of computation (essentially a simple sequential Turing machine) is wrong. It is of little consequence… until they try to make sense of performance results… Sadly, the naive model of software performance is widespread in academia…"

Yeah, shoddy reporting again. Google being 61% white is well below the overall US demographics. So actually to the extent that there is a bias/trend in their hiring it is for Asians. Google is 30% Asian, while the US is just under 5%... although even that suffers from a bias in the applicant pool, because Asians get 8% of the CS degrees. Given that African American's make up over 11% of CS degrees (2% of Google employees) and Hispanics make up over 7% (3% of Google employees) and whites make up 67% of CS degrees, it would seem to be as though Google's racial bias is heavily favouring Asians at the expense of all the other major ethnicities, but particularly African Americans.

It'd be interesting to compare these numbers to the numbers from the applicant pool.

Amazing finding by Google & academic researchers: neural networks used for image recognition are extremely brittle for specific minute disturbances in the input image. Multiple different networks failed to recognize the same slightly altered image that looks indistinguishable to the human eye.

How do you get quickly the assembly output of a few lines of C? Yes, I know how to get the assembly dump of a .c file. I know how to do it, awkwardly, with a debugger... But since I have found out about http://gcc.godbolt.org/ I want to have an equivalent tool on the command line... That is, I want to be able to super quickly know the compiler output... by super quickly, I mean that I don't want to have to type complicated commands...

Barely more than 50$. You get 512MB of RAM,  a 1GHz processor, and 4GB of flash memory. There isn't a lot you can't do with a machine like that.
