In Russia, papers translate themselves!

Varhol warningAlexey Turchin has translated our paper on risks into Russian. At least I *think* he has done it, since my Russian is a bit limited.

Language barriers are so annoying! I'm convinced there is a lot of useful literature in other languages that I am missing. So either we figure out how to translate automatically, or we recognize that English is a lingua franca (oops!) and all learn it. If ESR says it makes sense, then it probably does. (I don't think Esperanto has that much of a chance).
