1 I wonder how much reeeing you'd see in the comments if you pointed out that fake meat is ultra-processed.
As an aside, a couple years ago I accidentally ate a hamburger made of one of the plant-based things.  I don't know which brand it was.  I could instantly tell it wasn't beef, and I didn't really like it, but it wasn't really bad.  I wouldn't eat it on purpose, though.

2 A (former) gewgle engineer claims that Big Data is dead?  Well, I'm sure that's the case!  I mean, he has silly, hand-drawn graphs and all.  Also, the fact that commodity hardware is catching up with stuff that barely qualified as "big data" in 1999 obviously means what he says.
And, yes, he's right that the stuff that he, and his colleagues, were selling as "big data" just doesn't qualify any more is entirely true, but that doesn't mean that he's not obviously distracting from the larger point:  if you have the resources you can extract tons of quite useful information from the miasma of nonsense.  Which is what he used to do.  And is now what he is denying has any value or meaning.  While his (former?) employer leverages every cent out of what he helped to design.  And I'm sure there's nothing nefarious going on there.

3 Rick C:
The solution to "ultra-processed" food is uh . . . wait, are we calling it "plant-based" this week?  Yeah, Plant Based!  It's the follow-on to "Organic", which is the offspring of "All Natural", which came about some time after "Pure"!
(Which, honestly, is due for a revival)

Apple pies are delicious. But never mind apple pies. What colour is a green orange?
