The geek portion of my brain was catching up from some blog entries over the weekend and on Friday when I was out sick. In doing so, I came across an entry at Coding Horror which, in addition to discussing hash tables, discusses the Birthday Paradox.
Last night at fencing practice, we got to talking about Blade Runner (Director’s Cut) and about certain choices that were made on the original theatrical release versus the Director’s Cut. This led to a recommendation to read (and compare it) against the original short novel on which it was based Do Androids Dream of Electric Sheep? (By Philip K. Dick).
