If Shakespeare interests you, you can see Elton portray Verges in Kenneth Branaugh's adaptation of Much Ado About Nothing (Although Micheal Keaton steals the scenes).

Shakespeare is overrated.

Plagiarising, antisemitic bastard.

I never understood Shakespeare, then I read the Julius Caesar story in the original Latin and realised Shakespeare's entire shtick was to take a great story and render it bullshit by turning it into poetry. I con only imagine what stories like MacBeth were like before he butchered them.

Jorge Luis Borges once wrote that to live in a time of great peril and promise is to experience both tragedy and comedy, with “the imminence of a revelation” in understanding ourselves and the world. Today our supposedly revolutionary advancements in artificial intelligence are indeed cause for both concern and optimism. Optimism because intelligence is the means by which we solve problems. Concern because we fear that the most popular and fashionable strain of A.I. — machine learning — will degrade our science and debase our ethics by incorporating into our technology a fundamentally flawed conception of language and knowledge.

Massive amount of material being written about AI over the past few weeks.

Here are a couple of local stories that cover some of the bases:
