Mike brings up a case that I hadn't even imagined.  I think that is is (legally) within a journal's right to say that they don't want to publish anything produced with a certain class of software, but what a heinous decision that would be.  We clearly need to do a better job of communicating what "open source" means to the rest of the STEM establishment.
 
Michael Droettboom just posted this message to the NumFOCUS board that is of interest. The short of it is that a highly regarded journal was thinking of banning figures created by matplotlib.

I am inclined to agree, which is part of why I think Mike left the name off :)

I remember when the bus from LaGuardia to Morningside Heights only took 8 quarters. I had to get change at the post office.

I don't know of a single person who has fully transitioned to Python 3 and then thought that Python 2 was a better language

I'll sheepishly raise my hand as someone who spent a decent chunk of time working in Python 3 and wound up with a slight Python 2 preference.

Like Armin, I don't have a problem with the Python 3 language as much as the CPython implementation. While most of my complaints are small annoyances that come with operating in an atypical environment where I/O costs are high and memory is very valuable, I feel they can be traced back to more of CPython being written in Python and the Python implementation being more file system and memory intensive.

Neat 3D gifs with matplotlib.
In a previous post, I discussed chaos, fractals, and strange attractors. I also showed how to visualize them with static 3-D plots. Here, I’ll demonstrate how to create these animated visualizations using Python and matplotlib. All of my source code is available in this IPython notebook. By the end, we’ll produce animated data visualizations like this, in …

I am pleased to announce that I have accepted a tenure-track faculty position at the University of South Carolina in the Mechanical Engineering department.  My mom (+Jana Scopatz) raised me with the following limerick,  so this is let my family know this morning:

There once was a student named Besser,
Whose knowledge grew lesser and lesser.
Til at once it grew so small,
He knew nothing at all!
And today he's a college professor.
