Geek Reading March 17, 2015

Leading us off today is FastML, trying to give us perspective on the “human-level AI” scare hype. Interconnected writes about a richter scale for outages. This is listed as a top story because there is a lot of merit in the idea and it also puts into perspective how important certain things really are. Matthew Graybosch talks about programmer passion being a bad thing, more based on the idea that those who are willing to work 60-80 hour weeks are probably doing a bad job in the end. Also, there is a great selection of development articles today, so take a look at a few of those.

As always, enjoy today’s items, and please participate in the discussions on these sites.
