The demon appeared in the summoning circle.
"Cool!" one of the astronauts said.
"We have summoned you," the other said, "to carry a message to Earth."
The demon glared at them. "Where. Am. I."

Tangent to a conversation I'm having with @brandon

I'm seeing a lot of people go out and buy new glass food storage for themselves as a greener alternative to reusing the plastic containers their food comes in.

Let me put this clearly:

Recycling is always more green than buying.

Buy glass instead of reusing plastic containers because you're concerned about consuming plastic, sure.

But going out and buying something new as an alternative to something you'll own anyway is not eco-friendly.

TIL: reinforcement learning algorithm

These algorithms are not looking at what that person clicks on and learning what that person likes and sending them recommendations. That is what the designers imagined as the ideal scenario. What it does is that it acts on its environment to maximize on reward (your brain being the env). It acts on your brain to make you more a predictable clicker. What algorithms have figured out is how to feed you articles to move you into a direction into making you more into a predictable clicker.

Which is, y'know. Racist. There's no excuse for this anymore. The entire industry spent two decades pulling its hair out to make Unicode happen, but that work is done now. There's no modern language without Unicode support.

Stand on the shoulders of giants already. And throw some damn emojos in your test cases. ⚠️

Arrgh, is having trouble today :( *waves in m.s*

@dogtrax @gg @lauraritchie @katebowles @Tdorey On commenting: there are lots of ways of commenting (comment box, social annotation, embedded etherpads) but it is the attitude of commenting that is most important. To learn this attitude I would recommend Alan Levine's post here:

My replacement gotcha arrived yesterday, as well as the rubber holder connected to a carabiner I planned to use to attach to my belt.

I had a small freak out after attaching said to my belt and discovering while cooking dinner that the gotcha was not in the holder! How could I have already lost it on the first couple of hours of ownership?? Boded ill.

Then I saw it was plugged into the charger. Doh
