Grumpy

Grumpy is an experimental Python runtime for Go. It translates Python code into Go programs, and those transpiled programs run seamlessly within the Go runtime. We needed to support a large existing Python codebase, so it was important to have a high degree of compatibility with CPython (quirks and all). The goal is for Grumpy to be a drop-in replacement runtime for any pure-Python project.



2017 is not just another prime number

TJ Wei on why 2017 is not just any prime number:

2017π (rounds to nearest integer) is a prime.

2017e (rounds to nearest integer ) is a prime.

The sum of all odd primes up to 2017 is a prime number, i.e. 3+5+7+11+...+2017 is a prime number.

The sum of the cube of gap of primes up to 2017 is a prime number. That is (3-2)^3 + (5-3)^3 + (7-5)^3 + (11-7)^3 + ... + (2017-2011)^3 is a prime number.

The Glass Room

The Glass Room is hands-down the most creative, interesting, and effective exploration of issues around internet health I have ever seen. You won’t find dry white papers about net neutrality in here. Instead the space is filled with creative, dystopian artistic exhibitions and real-world product marketing materials for truly disturbing services like Silver Mother, which basically let’s you track your parents as if they were terrorists.


Hard Ship

The story of three paralyzed sailors competing in the Race to Alaska, a 750 mile race through some of the most treacherous and remote waters.
