Hi, I'm Fuzzwah.
This site is a dumping ground for things I find interesting. If you're looking for content I've personally generated you might want to head directly to one of my other sites:
Earth scientist Alex Gardner reveals a world of rapid change as seen through the eyes of a NASA glaciologist. Glaciers and ice sheets hold massive amounts of freshwater locked up as ice. These stores of freshwater feed water supplies that support millions of people around the world, raise global sea levels, and can even change the rate of Earth’s rotation. It is now nearly certain that as Earth’s atmosphere and oceans warm over the coming centuries, glaciers and ice sheets will continue to retreat and sea levels will continue to rise. The big question now is at what rate and by how much?

At GDC, Meier talked to Glixel for almost an hour with boyish enthusiasm about what makes Civilization work, why Firaxis turns to a new lead designer with almost every sequel, and that whole thing with having his name on the box.
A confluence of political and economic forces has prompted Europe’s
largest airplane manufacturer to place a factory in Alabama —
and to create one of the world’s most gargantuan supply chains.
In this book, then, Varoufakis gives one of the most accurate and detailed descriptions of modern power ever written – an achievement that outweighs his desire for self-justification during the Greek crisis. He explains, with a weariness born of nights in soulless hotels and harsh-lit briefing rooms, how the modern power network is built. Aris gets a loan from Zorba’s bank; Zorba writes off the loan but Zorba’s construction company gets a contract from Aris’s ministry. Aris’s son gets a job at Zorba’s TV station, which for some reason is always bankrupt and so can never pay tax – and so on.
What is Movix
Movix is a movie recommendation service based on artificial intelligence and Deep Learning. Click movies and tags you like and the system will do the rest — in a few clicks, Movix adapts to your preferences and gives you movies worth watching.
How is this different from other recommedation engines?
Unlike other services, we don't require registration or long history of films you have watched before. Your taste, mood and preferences change every day and we understand that — so every recommendation is completely new! Just click a few movies you would like to watch right now and we will find your movie.
We have designed our own custom Neural Network architecture based on LSTM. It’s built on top of Ternsorflow framework from Google and runs on GPU. Unlike other engines, we have no precalculated recommendations — every click is being processed on
PICO-8 is a fantasy console for making, sharing and playing tiny games and other computer programs. When you turn it on, the machine greets you with a shell for typing in Lua programs straight away and provides simple built-in tools for creating sprites, maps and sound.
The harsh limitations of PICO-8 are carefully chosen to be fun to work with, encourage small but expressive designs and hopefully to give PICO-8 cartridges their own particular look and feel.
Climate Change: let’s dream about it, let’s have fun with it, let’s make it a cool adventure.
On that, here’s my 5 favorite articles and books that merge climate change and technology. These are the pieces I’ve found myself referencing over the past year when I meet hackers and geeks curious about climate change.
