As per the Guidelines:

On-Topic: Anything that good hackers would find interesting. That includes more than hacking and startups. If you had to reduce it to a sentence, the answer might be: anything that gratifies one's intellectual curiosity.

Can the OP or someone else offer a perspective as to the relevancy/connection with startups/hacking/entrepreneurs or intellectual curiosity... perhaps I'm missing an obvious link here as I'm lost...?
