I don’t see a master group. I see certain wealthy families that got powerful. America builds wealthy families – and some families started with Old Money from Europe. Most Jewish people I’ve known were agnostic, liberal Jewish folks who played Dungeons & Dragons or were 1990s computer geeks, so far removed from any wealthy family connections that the idea that they’re even marginally connected is laughable to me. Criticize the wealthy all you like but extended it to this whole big group makes no sense to me.

dude, that’s David Duke, Farrakan stuff. Yeah, some Jewish business folks did own and trade in slaves in America, but Jewish population then and now were the minority in population amount – AND a minority in the amount of slave owning and trading. MOST of the slave owners and slave traders were Christians because Christians made up the bulk of the businessmen and Christians made up the bulk of the property ownership and Christians made up the bulk of the ship owning and building, including the slave trading and slave owning.

It’s a known fact that Jewish families BUILT Hollywood. In the 1970s, the only people that would give loans to black entertainers were Jewish investors; the white Christian investors would not invest in black entertainment at all at the time. So that’s also facts. But from the 1980s onwards – last 40 years, all that’s changed. The hard divisions of the past have been softening. Ye’s talking out of an ancient playbook, still preached by Southern preachers today as they did 60 years ago. It sounds out of place to the rest of us because now it _is_ out of place. Those days l.ong past.

It’s possible the pseudocode shows up a lot because of the .. well, – evolutionary – origin of particle swarm optimization. It’s intimately connected with Conway’s Game of Life and other cellular automata, even though it has a more naturalistic basis. Cellular automata’s big heyday was the 1970s/80s in which pseudocode was king — mostly because pseudocode and actual code could easily be nearly identical as nearly all programming was procedural, being prior to the days of OOP and functional programming. This is neat: “Lifeviewer” – has a bunch of keyword codes built in – this one is “Maze2” – or you can explore other different simple rule-based ideas.

For example, whenever I read on swarm optimization, they usually name the algorithms after some kind of animal or behavior. Like this last paper I’m looking at that I linked just there is talking about the “chase-swarming procedure in the cockroach swarm optimization algorithm”. That puts a good visualization in my head and allows me to follow the discussion

For example, whenever I … [read full article]

 

I’ve always been a fan of parallelized algorithms like swarm and evolutionary and cellular automata [my first exposure to the notion of “living algorithms” was of course conway’s game of life, and learning about network and internet routing optimization issues from 1990+ particle swarming has indeed been an amazing breakthrough in combining parallelization and evolutionary algorithms. NetLogo, which I’m playing with AGAIN tonight after putting it aside for a year or so, has some Particle Swarm Optimization models set to lower dimensionality for better visualization.
