This is the October 2018 edition of the Gwern.net newsletter; previous, September 2018 (archives). This is a collation of links and summary of major changes, overlapping with my Changelog; brought to you by my donors on Patreon.
- Like Engendr’ing Like: Heredity and Animal Breeding in Early Modern England, Russell 1986 (review)
- Donald Michie: On Machine Intelligence, Biology and More, ed Srinivasan 2009 (review)
- Shadow of the Vampire (2000) (a meta-fictional retelling of Nosferatu; Defoe kills it as the vampire, and the movie as a whole is a love-letter to silent-films & film-making)
Due to length, this review & essay has been split out to a separate page.
