I’m reading I’ve read half of the book, and it is interesting to see all the ways statistics can be “adapted”. It also shows how complicated generating fair, honest and valuable figures can be. Excellent read until now, I feel it helps me be a better critical thinker.

2018-03-27 [Technical,Short] run git and Gradle and Java from docker without installing anything

Docker is not a light-VM it is much more Docker is often used as a light-VM. But this is the wrong way to see it.
