I started reading Max Pumperla and Kevin Ferguson's book “Deep Learning and the Game of Go” yesterday. I wish it was a bit heavier on the maths and used Julia rather than Python (I'm stubbornly going to try to work through the book using Julia anyway), but nevertheless, this is the most fun tech book I’ve seen in a long while. Highly recommended.

I am *very* excited for Pine64's "pro" laptop. They just announced. As the #Pinebook was starting to look lightweight as the years progress. I've been telling @targus lately we need more non intel management engine infected machines; and Microsoft's plans for Arm seem to involve a lot of locked bootloaders.

and we all continue to be excited about their #EthicalPhone right? liliputing.com/2019/01/pinepho…

bicycles are unparalleled in their ability to transport humans efficiently over short or even medium distances in a city. all the advantages of cars and more, with the important caveats of course that they are unusable by the non able bodied and they cant really haul loads. and many of the disadvantages of bicycles melt away when not forced to share road space with the accurséd car. there are already real world examples of primarily bike oriented commuter systems, in for example Denmark

Because of user demand, I have extraordinarily uploaded an updated rpi2 minimal image of #ManjaroARM.
The image is #armv7h based, uses the raspberry pi specific kernel and has all the new package goodies.

Enjoy!
