The Link Between Infinite Computing and Machine Learning

Obscured by Smashing Pumpkins - To date, I have posted at least eleven Pumpkins songs on this blog, but oddly nothing from their 1994 Pisces Iscariot. Though it was billed as just a release of outtakes and B-sides, it quickly rose on the charts and grew their already large fan base on the strength of songs like the cover of Landslide. The albums has a pretty wide array of softer ballads to all out kinetic rocker tunes, but one of my favorite tracks is Obscured.

Since then, I’ve sat on hundreds of boards and been to a zillion board meetings.
