Y no tan chorras...
El Test de Turing Mínimo es un paradigma experimental para el estudio de las percepciones y metapercepciones de diferentes grupos sociales o tipos de agentes, en el que los participantes deben utilizar una sola palabra para convencer a un juez de su identidad. Los participantes actúan como concursantes (o jueces) y luego los datos se cruzan en un espacio vectorial semántico para ver cómo se comparan los enfrentamientos por parejas. Esto nos permite identificar la estructura semántica en las palabras que la gente propone y obtener medidas cuantitativas de la importancia que se le da a los diferentes atributos.

Software Library: C64
The Commodore 64, also known as the C64 or the CBM 64, is an 8-bit home computer introduced in January 1982 by Commodore International (first shown at the Consumer Electronics Show, in Las Vegas, January 7–10, 1982). It has been listed in the Guinness World Records as the highest-selling single computer model of all time, with independent estimates placing the number sold between 10 and 17 million units.Volume production started in early 1982, marketing in August for US$595 (equivalent to $1,509 in 2017). Preceded by the Commodore VIC-20 and Commodore PET, the C64 took its name from its 64 kilobytes (65,536 bytes) of RAM. With support for multicolor sprites and a custom chip for waveform generation, the C64 could create superior visuals and audio compared to systems without such custom hardware.The C64 dominated the low-end computer market for most of the 1980s. For a substantial period (1983–1986), the C64 had between 30% and 40% share of the US market and two million units sold per year, outselling IBM PC compatibles, Apple computers, and the Atari 8-bit family of computers. Sam Tramiel, a later Atari president and the son of Commodore's founder, said in a 1989 interview, "When I was at Commodore we were building 400,000 C64s a month for a couple of years."In the UK market, the C64 faced competition from the BBC Micro and the ZX Spectrum, but the C64 was still one of the two most popular computers in the UK.Part of the Commodore 64's success was its sale in regular retail stores instead of only electronics or computer hobbyist specialty stores. Commodore produced many of its parts in-house to control costs, including custom integrated circuit chips from MOS Technology. It has been compared to the Ford Model T automobile for its role in bringing a new technology to middle-class households via creative and affordable mass-production. Approximately 10,000 commercial software titles have been made for the Commodore 64 including development tools, office productivity applications, and video games. C64 emulators allow anyone with a modern computer, or a compatible video game console, to run these programs today. The C64 is also credited with popularizing the computer demoscene and is still used today by some computer hobbyists.In 2011, 17 years after it was taken off the market, research showed that brand recognition for the model was still at 87%.
PD: de ahí saca WOTW sus capturas.

La extraña teoría/dilema/experimento mental del Basilisco de RokoDe entre todas las cosas raras de la culturilla informática que hemos descubierto en la serie Silicon Valley, pocas me parecen tan rebuscadas y a la vez tan curiosas como la del Basilisco de Roko.
