Friday Links!

Leading off this week, and it's very, very powerful: I'm Still Here | By John Wall.

Digital Foundry reviews AI imagine generation programs: Just how good are the new wave of AI image generation tools? I also think it's interesting to note how quickly these programs are improving. It's stunning, really.

From Chris M., and it's amazing (taken during the earthquake): 2022/09/18 (Tuned Mass Damper) of Taipei 101 Skyscraper.

From Wally, and this is an excellent watch for architecture nerds (and anyone interested in building structures): The Ronan Point Tower Disaster 1968 | Plainly Difficult Documentary (the documentary mentions the Great Storm of 1987). This is adjacent: How Racism Turned Chicago’s Cabrini-Green Homes From A Beacon Of Progress To A Run-Down Slum. An excellent read: Equinox

From C. Lee, and I think it's utterly ridiculous: Despite their influence and extensive access to information, members of Congress can buy and sell stocks with few restrictions. This seems to happen "suddenly" quite often: Another Russian exec’s body found following mysterious death. This is both strange and scary: Cancers in Adults Under 50 Have Increased Dramatically Around The Globe. Watch out: Scientists explore chemistry of tattoo inks amid growing safety concerns. This is odd: Anti-diarrhea Medication May Help Treat Core Autism Symptoms. Keyboard nerd alert! The Obsessive Pleasures of Mechanical-Keyboard Tinkerers. These are amazing: Watch & Optical Repairman Creates Miniature Sculptures From Old Parts
