This particular newsletter has a lot of interesting papers in it, which I mostly infer means more time was spent researching things similar to my interests this month.

I notice The Node is Nonsense link now directs to the IEEE website instead of to the pdf. Was that intentional?

A lot of the links are spillover from continued editing of my GPT-3 pages, which is probably why.

And yes, it is intentional. The IEEE is remarkably humorless about people hosting PDFs.

Curse them! I dropped my membership because it is mostly pretty worthless, but every now and again an interesting paper comes through and then I am sad.

I have fallen right into their trap.

Fortunately, it's not as if the IEEE have any special immunity to Sci-Hub.
