Sleep Deprivation, Lip Reading, Data Processing, and Rapid Product Development
- Performance Degradation and Restoration During Sleep Deprivation (NCBI) — These results suggest that the brain adapts to chronic sleep restriction. In mild to moderate sleep restriction, this adaptation is sufficient to stabilize performance, although at a reduced level. These adaptive changes are hypothesized to restrict brain operational capacity and to persist for several days after normal sleep duration is restored, delaying recovery. Crunches are dangerous.

- Video-Driven Speech Reconstruction — aka: teaching a neural net to read lips.
- pxi — a small, fast, and magical command-line data processor similar to jq, mlr, and awk.
- iPod Timeline (Patrick Collison) — wow, that’s a hell of a timeline.
