  • Mood:

days are meaningless linked list: hospital algorithms, books reduce recidivism, dining as a couple

- This Algorithm Accidentally Predicted Which Hospital Patients Were Most Likely To Die - neat! (thanks Dan!)

- To reduce recidivism rates, give prisoners more books - win-win!

- The Economics of Dining as a Couple - funny, and the best part is the standard disclaimer at the bottom: "This column does not necessarily reflect the opinion of the editorial board or Bloomberg LP and its owners." For the record, David and I are somewhere between options 2 and 3.

- More than a hundred Star Trek cast and crew sign off on anti-Trump letter - random, but neat I guess!

- Firefox is eating your SSD – here is how to fix it
