OK, last night’s lack of sleep is finally hitting me. Gorn.

@MegaManSec Cool. I’m much happier with the idea that I’m merely first to call it that, rather than first to think of it.

@Taco_Lad Oh indeed. I’m not just annoyed that I fell for the recency illusion. Again.

@johnthelutheran I’m maybe one or two bets ahead of you, in sports anyway. I won a bet against @mpesce too, lost against @PaulFletcherMP.

via TweetDeck in reply to johnthelutheran

@Taco_Lad Oh yeah. That. From the 1930s. Silly me, I’d heard of that too.

@MegaManSec This is what I would have thought, now that things like protein synthesis are automated.

via TweetDeck in reply to MegaManSec

@Taco_Lad Though I suspect that geneticists and software hackers just use different terminology for the idea.

via TweetDeck in reply to Taco_Lad

@Taco_Lad Perhaps, but I’d imagined that someone else would have been there well before me.

Google Search returns zero results for “DNA fuzzing” or “gene fuzzing” or “… fuzzer”. I think I just invented a thing. A scary thing.

If anyone’s seen audio of last night’s Rabbit speech, do please let me know.

“It’s hard to imagine; but much that’s ridiculed today seemed self-evident a generation ago…” No, Tony, that’s quite easy to imagine.

“Riveting, as well as interesting,” eh Tony? Also, “It’s hard to imagine …” is a statement about your own ability, not about the world.
