- Bribing Miners to Regulate Bitcoin — interesting! A somewhat conspiracy-theoretical take on an MIT proposal to layer identity onto Bitcoin. Features repurposed DRM tech, no less.
- Tesla Model X Quality Issues (Consumer Reports) — hardware is hard.
- Data Proofer — open source software that’s test cases for your data, to help ensure you’re not pushing corrupt data into production.
- Internet Voting? Really? (YouTube) — TEDx talk by Andrew Appel comparing physical with online voting. Very easy to follow for the non-technical.
