This Week's Topic: One Year of Horizontal Transfer


  • The Vivaldi browser
  • Apparently chrome no longer keeps very many of the old versions of itself (though you can select ‘Show Package Contents’ on the app in the finder and then open the versions folder to see if that holds true for you).
  • Overfitting
  • The Signal and the Noise
