Thought Leaders with Clay Shirky. Richard Lipton’s Gödel’s Lost Letter and P=NP is the best blog you and I will never read.

Thought Leaders with Clay Shirky

(Sample sentence: “The structure of a univariate polynomial is strongly determined by its Galois Group.”) Lipton is a computer scientist at Georgia Tech, and the dean of bloggers writing about P=NP. The P=NP question, ridiculously simplified, is that some problems are easy for computers to handle (these are called P), while others are hard (NP), but no one knows if NP problems are fundamentally different from P problems or not.

I remember a casual conversation that I had with a teen girl in the midwest while I was doing research. I knew her school approached sex ed through an abstinence-only education approach, but I don’t remember how the topic of pregnancy came up. What I do remember is her telling me that she and her friends talked a lot about pregnancy and “diseases” she could get through sex.
