Time-boxed research Friday, 10 February 2023 14:24:12 CST David-Braverman Politics, Work (0) I've got an open research problem that's a bit hard to define, so I'm exploring a few different avenues of it. I hope reading these count: Dara Massicot performs an autopsy on Russia's invasion of Ukraine. Walter Kirn worries about AIs inadvertently training themselves, and the mushy content that will result. Bruce Schneier describes hacking the tax code, which I hope he goes more into in his latest book, currently on my bedside table. The Texas DOT seems to be at war with urbanism, which makes a certain sense, but something about their shenanigans in Houston recently seems unusually corrupt. The less said about toilet plumes, the better. But please put the lid down before flushing. Since none of these has anything at all to do with my research project, I should get back to work.
