  • Ask HN: Favorite Podcast Episodes of 2023?
    - "Review" of "Programming as theory building" paper by Peter Naur (of BNF fame): The idea that the code is actually a physical manifestation of an _idea_ was so mind-blowing to me. Goes on to explain why team churn is bad for the software, why re-writes happen, how software dies. - Non-human Biologics, UFO Encounters, and Mexico’s Alien Bodies -- a... - Source: Hacker News / 7 months ago
  • Psychedelics researcher approached his death with calm and curiosity
    For those so inclined, Tara Brach had a lovely interview with Roland early this year: - Source: Hacker News / 9 months ago
  • Ask HN: How do you organize your life?
    I really like Cal Newport's thinking in this area. Basically, yes, you need a system that you trust to keep yourself focused on what matters most in each of your roles. The specific tools don't matter and are often an excuse to distract yourself from doing the work. Here's a good podcast covering this idea: - Source: Hacker News / 10 months ago
  • There is no way out of Chicago’s parking meter disaster
    I first heard about the story on this podcast episode of “Cautionary Tales”. I thought that an article would be a better post. - Source: Hacker News / 11 months ago
  • Wind and Solar Will Be 25% of Total U.S. Generating Capacity Within Three Years
    Surely u/bit_logic's enthusiastic phrasing was aspirational vs literal. That said, the bottle neck is now expanding and upgrading the grid. u/bit_logic is advocating we continue to build new generators, do not wait for the grid, and use that excess capacity to create green hydrogen. ASAP. Aka known as The Correct Answer™. Here's an interview with Andrew Wang of ETFuels, who is executing this strategy, with paying... - Source: Hacker News / almost 1 year ago
  • US Spies Are Buying Americans’ Data. Congress Has a New Chance to Stop It
    This story is adjacent to some topics I follow fairly closely for various reasons. I had seen a lot of not super well informed commentary on it when it was talked about here previously and so in that spirit I wanted to offer a short 20 minute chat that was aimed at policy makers between a well respected infosec journalist journalist and someone who previously spent a long time working at the Australian equivalent... - Source: Hacker News / about 1 year ago
  • Using Spotify as my main podcast player is so bad
    If you're on an M-series Mac, you can run the iOS/iPad version of the app on your Mac. Their web player is here (but it's apparently not getting new updates moving forward): (hit login up top). Source: about 1 year ago
  • Motherhacker season 1 back in the old RSS feed?
    I also experienced something weird. I knew I still had Dolores Roach in my Overcast player. Only I could not find it. I could not search it. I could not re-add it. I went to and I also could not search it there at all. Source: about 1 year ago
  • Atari 2600 Video Chess disassembled and commented at last
    The podcast advent of computing just had a deep dive into the intricacies and limitations of the Atari 2600. Having just listened to that episode, it makes this achievement even more impressive. - Source: Hacker News / about 1 year ago
  • Biggest mistakes to avoid to build a better 1-person business
    The iOS and Android app stores likely hold the most examples of high scale one person businesses. Someone already mentioned Apollo. I'd add [Overcast]( and [David Smith]( (maker of many apps, including the wildly successful widgetsmith). There are plenty of other really successful apps that are just one person operations. - Source: Hacker News / about 1 year ago
  • Any recommendations on WWI audio books?
    He puts it out for free so you'll buy his other stuff. It's in podcast form so if you have a favorite app that you like to use to consume podcasts, search for it there. If not, may I suggest Overcast - it's also free and a really great app for consuming podcasts. Source: about 1 year ago
  • Ted Chiang: ‘The machines we have now are not conscious’
    - rationality: the ability to reason/explain/justify about choices (before or after) I don’t think that’s comprehensive; and it’s conceivable that other intelligences (plant, animal, machine) might have some characteristics and not others, and/or of different qualitative nature. Asking merely if something “is” “conscious” is grossly insufficient. [0] - Source: Hacker News / about 1 year ago
  • Neverflow: Set of C macros that guard against buffer overflows
    And yet, even with that, Yann Collet credits Google's use of C++ for the compression library as a critical mistake that allowed him, an unknown, to gain traction with his own compression methods. Google later rewrote their library in C: Even if the tool chain exists, it must be adopted, unless you can rely on binaries being available for your end users, which will never be the case... - Source: Hacker News / about 1 year ago
