When he gotta learn Rubymotion, keep the site running trill Through The Brain by Mahbod Moghadam 28

RubyMotion is a technology that allows you to develop iOS apps using Ruby (aka “the best language”) instead of Objective C (aka “try using a regular expression it’s like 6 lines of code”)

This is actually a BITTTT of a gettier because I DO plan to learn RubyMotion, but not for our iOS app (gotta go 100% native for the smoothest experience)

Tom Lehman (aka LEMONNN) is the co-founder, CTO, and, for its first two years, sole developer of Rap Genius.

Before that he created BetterMetroNorth, before that he was a programmer at hedge fund D.E. Shaw, and before thattttttt he met his Rap Genius co-founders at Yale where he majored in Ethics, Politics, Economics, Mathematics and Philosophy… 5 majors (just kidding – it’s actually just two joint majors).

Here is a video of him explaining why “worse is better”:

Who can name the bigger number? Rap Genius is Hiring: Help Us Annotate the World by Rap Genius Engineering Team

A classic by Scott Aaronson

The prompt is simple:

You have fifteen seconds. Using standard math notation, English words, or both, name a single whole number—not an infinity—on a blank index card. Be precise enough for any reasonable modern mathematician to determine exactly what number you’ve named, by consulting only your card and, if necessary, the published literature.

SO… WHAT DO YOU DO??!?!

Really the question boils down to “name the fastest growing sequence”.. and the trick is to come up with a sequence that grows faster than ANY COMPUTABLE SEQUENCE (wow..)

Grip Rap Genius is Hiring: Help Us Annotate the World by Rap Genius Engineering Team

Songs like “We Up” by 50 Cent mention a “grip” of an object. Grip means a lot of that object, so much in fact that you can’t just hold it, you have to grip it.

You sleep as much as I do now
And you don't eat much of anything
Plea from a Cat Named Virtute by The Weakerthans

When depressed, people tend to be unmotivated and sleep a lot. They also get thrown off of their normal diet. John’s in a pretty deep rut. As for the cat, cats sleep an average of sixteen hours a day… anyone who’s ever actually met a cat suspects that it’s higher.

I swear I'm going to bite you hard
And taste your tinny blood
If you don't stop the self-defeating lies
You've been repeating since the day you brought me home
Plea from a Cat Named Virtute by The Weakerthans

Virtute has talked herself in circles, and now it’s time to get serious (and more than a little violent). If John can’t get out of his woe-is-me rut, she’ll do everything in her power to do it for him.

Fun fact: blood is often described as tasting “tinny” or “coppery,” and for good reason: it’s loaded with iron platelets.
