Mark Smith’s Newsletter - Saturday 19th June, 2021
Hello and welcome to my newsletter!
Another season 2 instalment…
Another week, another newsletter, but only just. I’m low on power and low on WiFi so I’ll keep this brief.
Small selection in this edition, but I managed to find a few cool links.
What a balancing act life is, patience patience patience, and then a bit more patience.
That’s all from me this week…
I hope you enjoy the links!
As usual all the articles from the linkblog in chronological order are included below, which is also a good way to explore, there are some pieces there amongst the main summary items that didn’t make it into the main themes, but these are interesting in their own right, and often end up developing into something more substantial further down the line.
Consider becoming a sponsor to get your company featured on the linkblog and in the newsletter
Consider becoming a patreon, any support would be very much appreciated

Lex Fridman Podcast Ep #190 - Jordan Ellenberg - Mathematics of High-Dimensional Shapes and Geometries - I was pretty into mathematics at school, and especially geometry, and I’ve found that recently I’ve been super interested in anything related to parallel dimensions, higher order dimensions etc, whether it’s grounded in science but also of the more esoteric kind, anyway there’s some interesting problem solving techniques discussed in this episode, it’s totally trippy in places, and it’s also tangentially related to programming and AI lexfridman.com #
