Honestly single letter language names are garbage and are legacies of B and C that aren't worth keeping around imo.

Apparently there are problems that are basically intractable with classical computers so it might be the case that we're simply having to trade impracticalities around.

Serialism is listed as one of Spotify's "biggest emerging genres" by mmultiplierin kosmiche_musik

[–]StudentRadical27 3 points4 points ago

I don't know how the list was produced but it appears very much possible that I've been contributing to serialism's place in it. But despite posting a few future funk tracks here, I've never listened to on Spotify and never had any idea it had any traction there outside of SoundCloud and with being accompanied by Sailor Moon clips. So that makes me wonder about the genre list.

As an aside, the Tom and Jerry cartoon Puttin' on the Dog (1944) has serial elements in its score.

In fact, according to a recent poll 76% of hammer bros consider Super Mario to be the greatest threat to Mushroom Kingdom peace, yet powerful media establishments have all relayed us an opposite narrative.

Interview horror story: Trying to explain that we can almost always sort in better than O(n*log(n)) time by 1vsin just_post

Suppose you got a list of n integers, that are either -1, 0 or 1. Make an array with 3 elements - lets initialize it as [0, 0, 0]. Go through the list and count how many of the three integers there are and update the intermediate list thus. Suppose the result is [2, 3, 3]. Now you can populate the result list as [-1, -1, 0, 0, 0, 1, 1, 1]. Can you see why it's O(n)?

Is it because it's easier to count legit views or easier to circumvent ad blocking or something else?

The original Bee and Puppycat was too good to be, sadly. Bravest Warriors was good as well. But this thing is apparently a part of whole new series of one offs in the manner of Adventure Time pilot.

Something is wrong on the internet (somewhat overly-long article about the weird algorithmically generated weird youtube kids videos) by oakreefin technology

[–]StudentRadical27 3 points4 points ago

It had too many examples so I agree on the length front.

What I think is that, much like how Wikipedia despite being useful for some things is essentially a failure, this is a case of neoliberal assumptions. The whole schtick of neoliberalism is about information and how it leads to efficiency and lets the cream de la creme rise to the top. Google's version just as computers and algorithms to mix and then the engineers and the technocrats start the very predictable hand wringing ablut how nothing else is possible.

If I were a parent of small children now, I'd probably just keep YouTube off limits as it's not like there aren't alternatives that actually have been curated by someone by some other principle than letting the markets decide. That said I'm not that terribly concerned, there needs to just be a realization on what wasteland YouTube by and large is and some good ol' parental intervention. What I do find odd is the people who adopt the attitude that since they've been on the internet since kids, whatever they and their caregivers did is just part of life whether it worked or not and the latter judgement is made by a gutfeel. It's just so unreflective and also not something to model for kids.

Endgame expansion sounds like an abomination.

first part of a story - The Andromeda Welcome Committee - feedback really wanted by oakreefin just_post

[–]StudentRadical27 0 points1 point ago

I think you need to rear e your first paragraph. It veers into purple prose atm and reads a bit like an synopsis, but synopses are for planning and promotion and research and all these adjacent tasks but not for the text itself. What do you want to evoke about a collision of galaxies? Is there anything analogous in every day life that's accessible to our ordinary senses yet conveys a feeling what it's like?

That said, remember that first drafts are to be slaughtered and keep us updated.

"Woah" vs "whoa" by hoppetin just_post

[–]StudentRadical27 1 point2 points ago

'Woah' is your reaction to the sublime and 'whoa' is your reaction to the absurd.
