did.txt file
Its likely more natural for you to type at the bottom of the file so with normal Go we move the cursor to the bottom before reading from the date command.

$ vim +'normal Go' +'r!date' ~/did2.txt

Final Step: Create your alias and add this to your .bash_profile.

alias did="vim +'normal Go' +'r!date' ~/did.txt"

Classic Finder
I created a clone/re-creation of the Classic Mac OS Finder in modern Cocoa and Objective-C. I attempted to make it as pixel perfect and to-scale as possible by referencing screenshots I found around on the web and a tangerine iBook running Mac OS 9. This Finder clone is functional. It will really (probably poorly) perform Finder operations on your computer’s file system.

En närläsning av de 3 000 första kommentarerna på Jimmy Durmaz Instagraminlägg
Särskilt de första drygt 1 000 kommentarerna är på skalan mellan upprörda, förbannade och hatiska, och använder sig av grovt nedsättande och inte sällan sexistiska och homofoba skällsord. De kommentarer som – i min databas, med mina ögon, i min definition – kan betraktas som rasistiska är ett drygt 30-tal. I dokumentet har jag inte sett några hot. Kommentarerna har genomgående skrivits av unga, svenska män med till synes autentiska konton. De verkar också autentiska i och med när och hur de dyker upp i kommentarsfältet. Andra språk som förekommit i kommentarsfältet är framför allt spanska och turkiska, och de kommentarerna har jag inte läst. Det verkar inte som att en trollfabrik eller rasistisk kampanj ligger bakom hatet mot Durmaz.

Bitcoin is a Cult
The Bitcoin community has changed greatly over the years; from technophiles that could explain a Merkle tree in their sleep, to speculators driven by the desire for a quick profit & blockchain startups seeking billion dollar valuations led by people who don’t even know what a Merkle tree is. As the years have gone on, a zealotry has been building around Bitcoin and other cryptocurrencies driven by people who see them as something far grander than they actually are; people who believe that normal (or fiat) currencies are becoming a thing of the past, and the cryptocurrencies will fundamentally change the world’s economy.

Angèle makes fun of the social networks in her latest music video
This new video for her track « La Thune » talk about the links between money and social networks, especially among musicians: « you can quickly do things unethical to make money. As in music by the way, by making shit you can easily make money, it’s something that scares me a lot – it’s by thinking about that particular that I wrote this song. » The title that dissects the perverse side of the race to likes, and self-obsession.

AI Nationalism
The central prediction I want to make and defend in this post is that continued rapid progress in machine learning will drive the emergence of a new kind of geopolitics; I have been calling it AI Nationalism. Machine learning is an omni-use technology that will come to touch all sectors and parts of society. The transformation of both the economy and the military by machine learning will create instability at the national and international level forcing governments to act. AI policy will become the single most important area of government policy. An accelerated arms race will emerge between key countries and we will see increased protectionist state action to support national champions, block takeovers by foreign firms and attract talent. I use the example of Google, DeepMind and the UK as a specific example of this issue.
