    Just wanted to bring attention to this gem. If anyone's interested in homotopy and category theory and wants to learn more about ends and coends, this book is a great introduction.

    Glad I quit FB:

    In April, privacy groups filed a complaint with the Federal Trade Commission saying that Facebook had turned on new face-matching services without obtaining appropriate permission of users. Facebook has denied the groups’ accusations.

    Also:

    In May, for instance, Satya Nadella, Microsoft’s chief executive, said at a company developer conference that privacy was a “human right.” Yet in June, Microsoft donated $195,000 to an effort to defeat a consumer privacy bill in California.

    Gotta love Microsoft.

    However you feel about this issue, seperating children from families and subjecting them to the conditions described in this article is inhumane and dehumanizing. This simply isn't acceptable.

Girls as young as 3 years old were detained in this place and without their mothers,” Poletti wrote. She said one girl, 14, referred to as “G,” “felt hungry most of the time she was there because the food they provided her wasn’t good in quality or quantity.” “G” couldn’t sleep through the night, Poletti added.

    This simply isn't acceptable.
