April 2014 News

This is the April 2014 edition of the Gwern.net newsletter⁠; the previous was March⁠.

This is a summarized version of the revision-history RSS feed, overlapping with the Changelog page⁠. It also includes material from my Google+ & the LW media threads.

Books

Fiction:

Nonfiction:

  • Gleick, Genius: The Life and Science of Richard Feynman (brief review)

Film/TV

Animation:

  • (a must-watch for anyone who enjoyed the TV series; I am not certain in general what to make of it, and need to rewatch it. If you’re going to watch it at all, I recommend avoiding spoilers.)
  • (review)
  • Frozen (unobjectionable for a Disney movie although not without flaws—slangy dialogue will date it fast, plot made characters unnecessarily evil, snowman was the most hateful character since Jar Jar Binks)
