Talks for today: why we might want more people and less smart protocols

I just remembered today that my colleague Toby Ord a while ago gave an excellent talk about the question whether there is overpopulation or underpopulation in the world, and the talk is online. Very worth watching.

Another talk I enjoyed today was Meredith Patterson's talk about linguistics, Turing completeness and software security. A good explanation why protocols should not be too complex.
