This is the inau­gural Decem­ber 2013 issue of the gwern.net mail­ing list; you prob­a­bly signed up through a link there. If you do not want to receive fur­ther monthly emails, there is an unsub­scribe link at the bot­tom.

The pur­pose of this mail­ing list is to be a more mean­ing­ful and sum­ma­rized ver­sion of the RSS feed (which lists every patch, no mat­ter how small) over­lap­ping with my , but in a push/notification medium rather than pull.

While I was at it, I thought I would include some other mate­r­ial like the links I share on Google+. Since this is the first time, I don’t know if peo­ple are inter­ested in this or if I omit­ted any­thing that peo­ple expect­ed; feel free to email me with sug­ges­tions or feed­back (I believe the reply-to should be set to my address, gwern@gwern.net, but I am not sure). With­out fur­ther ado:

Media

Film/TV

  • Aku no Hana: dropped after a few episodes, could­n’t stand the roto­scop­ing
  • A Christ­mas Story/National Lam­poon: Christ­mas Vaca­tion: watched with fam­i­ly. The for­mer was pretty good. The lat­ter, though, had some good jokes but was gen­er­ally mediocre and strained, and a prod­uct of its time.

I reread Dis­cov­ery of France because I liked it so much the first time (review).
