Bellman's curse on advice
On applicability of advice
New post, taking Bellman’s curse of dimensionality and applying it in a less rigorous state space (advice)
Things I’ve recently read and enjoyed:
Jordan Mechner’s The Making of Prince of Persia: a look into Jordan’s creative process. Probably the best autobiography I’ve ever read. Applied Divinity Studies recently wrote his review for this book here, which I wholeheartedly agree with.
Marina Keegan’s The Opposite of Loneliness: very polished writing which feels even more impactful due to the unfortunate circumstances surrounding the author’s untimely death.
Jason Schreier’s Blood, Sweat, and Pixels: On game development and making art with deadlines.
The Last Days of Socrates (Plato’s Euthyphro, Apology, Crito, Phaedo)
