Welcome to Bookmarker!

This is a personal project by @dellsystem. I built this to help me retain information from the books I'm reading. Currently can only be used by a single user (myself), but I plan to extend it to support multiple users eventually.

The Weaponization of Code

he spends some time describing North Korea as a "hellhole" with, surprisingly, impressive cyberattack capabilities

also a expresses a really weird theory about the White House asking the Chinese govt to punish North Korea? which they did by getting China Unicom to take North Korea's internet offline? really bizarre

otoh, he does think govts should ensure that citizens are protected (cybersecurity-wise) rather than leaving it up to the market, which is a step forward

Data: The Raw Material of the Information Age

language translations getting better due to exponential growth in data. he's not wrong here, though he overreaches ... he mentions on p160 that Papua New Guinea has great natural resources, but 850 languages, which scares off foreign investors, and implies that better translation software will overcome those barriers? first of all, foreign investors can fuck right off, and second of all, idk where i was going with this but his argument is pretty gross

mentions that Alex Karp, one of the founders of Palantir, studied under Habermas ... wtf happened to him
