catnaroek comments on “The Physics of Software”

catnaroek comments on “The Physics of Software” > There can be value in talking about non-quantifiable, vauge, things too. There is no scientific value in it, so it shouldn’t be presented as a scientific theory (or even as a draft version of one), and especially not as “applied physics to software”. link By:catnaroekSource:https://news.ycombinator.com/item?id=15867382

totalZero comments on “Why are America’s farmers killing themselves in record numbers?” In theory, does land appreciate at the risk-free rate?
