When will artificial intelligence replace editors? - by @jbernoff
"Not any time soon. Computers are getting much better at identifying writing problems — passive voice, excessive adverbs, misspelled words, the wrong form of “its.” They’re not so good at suggesting answers. And they’re a long way from understanding conceptual and structural issues."

Uber just ensured that their toxic culture will persist - by @jbernoff
"Uber’s culture is aggressive with questionable ethics. Yesterday they announced the reforms they will make, and also said CEO Travis Kalanick would take a leave. Kalanick’s leave will ensure that none of the proposed cultural changes will happen."

MIT’s Food Computers Set the Stage for Open Source Agriculture
"There are some indications of this shift: the appearance of urban rooftop farms, an explosion of interest in automated hydroponic systems. The problem with all these systems is that their platforms are proprietary, and the lack of a common platform between them means these won’t necessarily scale up."
"Most  of  us  probably  don’t  think  too  much  about  the  foodstuffs  we  buy  in  supermarket.  But  behind  scenes  today’s  food  production  system  relies  on  a  centralized  industrial-scale  supply  chain  that’s  still  dependent  upon  soil-based  agriculture  for  majority  our  crops.Most  crops.culture  science  technology  top  stories  big  data  computer  computing  machine  learning  massachusetts  institute  open  source

The Four Critical Practices of Effective Software Development
"Small stories are great for several reasons. First, if the story calls for no more than about a day and a half of work, then if a developer miscalculates the time estimate for the job by 25 percent, that is still less than a day of additional work. This means that it’s easily possible on a weekly basis to understand whether a project is on schedule or not. If stories are estimated to take weeks, then it’s incredibly difficult to know you’re behind until after the deadline has passed."

"Unless you are extremely talented at writing, have lots of time outside your regular job, have something interesting and new to say every day, have vast sources of content, and are a little crazy, daily blogging is probably not for you."
