The winter is coming outdoor, person in winter

DSC Weekly 29 Nov 2022 – Winter is Coming

  • Kurt Cagle

DSC Weekly 15 Nov 2022 – The Dynamics of Ranked Voting

  • Kurt Cagle 

A Ranked Choice Voting system takes a different approach. In a Ranked Choice, candidates from any party (or no party) can stand for election.

  • Kurt Cagle 

The DSC Weekly newsletter normally covers trends or practices in the data science and AI field. Still, every couple of months, the editorial team will also write a newsletter issue such as this one specifically for writers. If you write regularly, these may contain new or changing information, while if you aren’t a writer yet, but you’d like to be, this is a good reference to check.

The storm was nearly as large as the state when it made landfall.

n many respects, we are facing not the need for a new form of money but rather a new form of economics – a discipline about the world where scarcity still holds in physical materials but where overabundance is the rule in virtual ones. To me, this is one of the key tenets that need to be hammered out in the metaverse: How do the actual creators of the virtual worlds, and not just the hosts, get paid for their work?
