Comment on AI ethics post becomes blog post due to broken commenting system, recursive edition

This is in reply to http://joanna-bryson.blogspot.de/2014/11/your-article-is-beautifully-written-and.html because the comment system didn't work after 3 attempts. That post in turn was a reply to http://hplusmagazine.com/2014/11/24/interstellar-might-depict-ai-slavery/, which wouldn't accept it as a comment. Feel free to skip multiple commenting attempts and go straight to making your own blog post if your long comment doesn't correctly submit the first time. Just make sure to post a link to your post in the comments here and COPY YOUR POST TO YOUR CLIPBOARD BEFORE SUBMITTING!

Now, without further ado, here's the intended comment on Joanna's post.

Edit to add further ado: Not even a short post on Joanna's blog to link to this post or to comment on the brokenness of the comment system worked. I couldn't even post a test comment on my own blog. I guess Blogger's commenting system is just really broken....


Lojban for Programmers Part 2: Implicit and Rearranged Sumti

«« Part 0 | « Part 1 | Part 2 |

This lesson, paralleling Wave Lesson 2 (read it!), teaches how to rearrange and omit sumti in your bridi, similar to named and default parameters in some programming languages. As this just builds upon and tweaks the concepts of the previous lesson, this will be a shorter post the Lojban part will be much shorter than the messy programming part.

Lojban for Programmers Part 1: Grammar Terms and How to Make Statements

« Part 0 | Part 1 | Part 2 »

I'm giving this post a structure of explaining the applicable programming structure, what the Lojban terms are, and then how they translate between each other. This structure may change in future posts. Also, while I'm not committing to any particular programming language, the (pseudo)code examples will mostly look familiar to users of C-family programming languages, unless I decide something else makes the point clearer.

This post parallels Wave Lesson 1, which should be read before/after/while reading this.


Lojban for Programmers Part 0: Introduction

| Part 0 | Part 1 »

So I'm finally getting back to my blog after five years. If you want to hear more of what I've been up to, you can poke around my site's updates and my Google+ posts, incomplete as they are. But for this blog here and now, I'm posting about my experience learning Lojban.
