harsh phonetic language, word games, lost in localization 

I was just reminded that some people think that the way to play Shiritori (しりとり) in English is to match the first letter of your word with the last letter of the preceding word, because we only have one Alphabet and it's "phonetic".

angry capitalism coronavirus thoughts 

I live in a nation where, rather than use the supplies we have on shelves in order to safely care for one another during this challenging time, we have hoarded them, all too eager to hide in our homes with our treasure piles, at most caring for those who are part of our direct social wealth.

I'm no brave exception.

This is not a safe way for a nation to live.

Global capitalism: a Monte Carlo simulation but if you don't find a solution in the first iteration everybody dies.

People who know me know that I'm no friend of our current economic system. But I'm even less of a friend of it when it's operated sub-optimally, because corrupt, inefficient capitalism is much much worse for the poor than the ideal, well organized system.

With this in mind, I continue to be deeply confused as to why, in our rush to eliminate all CAPEX from the technology budget, we seem to have forgotten that spending less money is better than spending more.
