  4. Ted Chiang on Civilization RisksI used to find it odd that these hypothetical AIs were supposed to be smart enough to solve problems that no human could, yet they were incapable of doing something most every adult has done: taking a step back and asking whether their current course of action is really a good idea. Then I realized that we are already surrounded by machines that demonstrate a complete lack of insight, we just call them corporations. See also this profile of Chiang.
  5. CypressFast, easy and reliable testing for anything that runs in a browser.
