Valuable News – 2021/10/04

The Valuable News weekly series is dedicated to provide summary about news, articles and other interesting stuff mostly but not always related to the UNIX or BSD systems. Whenever I stumble upon something worth mentioning on the Internet I just put it here.

Today the amount information that we get using various information streams is at massive overload. Thus one needs to focus only on what is important without the need to grep(1) the Internet everyday. Hence the idea of providing such information ‘bulk’ as I already do that grep(1).

    “Gentle Introduction to GPUs Inner Workings” is is an impressive reference. Adrian has a frighteningly good grasp of the subject and presents it well.
