LLM n C, 1.6nm, xz vul, turing 2024, let’s encrypt, chatdev, Ethernet vs IB, Slingshot, Tailscale ssh, videos, 42 rules, CNI, Cilium

Origins of deep learning: interesting post. At the beginning all was Matlab and CPU bounded. repo

LLM in C: post and repo.

A16: 1.6nm process for 2026. More frequency, less power.

xz vulnerability repo: Something I need to check in the VP

Turing Award 2024: zero-knowledge-proof.

Cloudflare and Let’s Encrypt’s certificate change: I haven’t heard of this until recently. I use Let’s Encrypt so as far as I can read, makes sense what they are doing. But didnt know 2% Cloudflare customer were using the “cert”

ChatDev: Communicate agents for software development. I am a not a developer but I would use this just as a starting point If I have any idea for a project. I would remove the C-suite agents, at least for low level projects.

IB vs Ethernet: A bit of bias here (the author is from Broadcom -> Ethernet). I have no hands-on experience with IB, but I have read the cables are not cheap… Let’s see when UltraEthernet gets into the market. Another view.

Slingshot and Juniper: A bit of bias again as HP bought Juniper. So how will these interconnects fade inside the company? As far as I know, most supercomputers use some “special” interconnect so not much ethernet there. But the money nowadays is in AI infra… Paper for slingshot (haven’t read it)

Tailscale SSH, wireguard throughput: These are things I should a spend a bit of time one day and consider if I should use them (I dont like it is not opensource though). This netmaker?


Jocko Willink: Discipline = Freedom. Remember but not dwell. Good leader, delegate. Be a man -> take action, bonding (pick your activity)

Jimmy Carr: Imposter syndrome each 18 months, so you have to stand-up. People crave the success not the journey. Teaching comedy good for communicating.

Sam Altman – Stanford 2024: First time I see him talking. It has some funny moments. More powerful computers. I missed a question about opensource LLM and closed ones.

Find a girlfriend: I know just a little bit about the person (I want to read one of his books) from other books and videos. I would think he would have already a girlfriend or family. From the three methods, definitely, the face to face approach in the street looks so much better (and that’s what I would like to do)

Jordan Peterson original 42 rules

CNI performance: I have used kubernetes since I studied for CKAD but still I am interested in the networks side. I didn’t know about Kube-router and it did great! I am bit surprised with Calico as I have read more and more about Cilium.

Cilium for network engineers. I have to read this fully (worried that Cisco bought it…)
