  5. SoftBank bought billions worth of US equity derivatives that stoked the fevered rally in big tech stocks before a sharp pullback on Thursday
  6. Headley’s is more of a rewriting than a true translation, reënvisaging the poem for the modern reader rather than transmitting it line for line.
    • “Bro! Tell me we still know how to talk about kings! In the old days, everyone knew what men were: brave, bold, glory-bound.”
    • Grendel is “fucked by fate,” Wealhtheow, “hashtag: blessed.”
  7. Hamming codes — how to overcome noise, the elegance of it all, error correction in hardware
    • “Almost all of the core logic in our scheme comes down to a single XOR reduction.”
  8. It’s good to have goals but not when our well-being depends on us achieving those goals.
