    It struck me as funny that the author (presumably human) is manually curating a list of recommended reading for recommendation systems on a site that uses recommendation systems to curate a list of articles for humans.

    curate :: human -> articles
    recommend :: articles -> human
    
    Identity = recommend . curate
    

    There’s probably a recursive element that I haven’t put my finger on yet.

    … Maybe I really just need to get out of the house.

      I am indeed a human! Unfortunately, we haven’t reached recsys singularity yet. :)

      These are usually some of the links I usually send out to new-hires and interns at my work, and I figured someone else may find it useful as well!
