Russia is introducing new limited-edition currency for the Sochi Olympics. Here's a sneak preview; Russians won't see this in hand until February. It's perhaps the first time Russia has had vertically-oriented banknotes.

+Jeff Dean gave a great talk today on reducing latency in distributed systems, as well as the structure and applications of new models in deep learning. This was the team that got the best improvement in speech recognition in twenty years as well as an automatic YouTube cat detector.

I'm just baffled by Coursera's addiction to the closed, rigid "course" model (and concomitant course calendar) if the result is going to be just 1% of students (262 of 28,000) who do what would be considered normal in a traditional college course (i.e. participate in the beginning, middle, and end). Surely it would be to everyone's benefit if Coursera would let go of the rigid course model and explored some other kind of presentation/participation model...? Oh, but then they would have to change their name! :-)

I'm excited to head to Google this summer to join the Google Maps and Google Now team for a great internship!

+Jason Salas: don't be too jealous.

What a great article, +Daniel Jarratt - they made it easy to understand and focused on really attention-getting features too. It prompted me to go the website also and I saw you had a blog: so now I am subscribed! Super! 
No more than 10 miles from the beach, ha ha: poor University of Oklahoma will not pass that test! :-)

An analog boardgame computer from the 1960s that beats you every time. It plays Nim's game, which is where two players go back and forth picking an arbitrary number of matchsticks or marbles or any object from a group. The player who picks the last object loses. This board has plastic switches that 'remember' previous occurrences and optimizes the board's own play against your own.

As a game, it would frustrate me ALWAYS losing.  As a puzzle, so smart!

Introduction
My idea of some great stuff:

  • the American West and the idea of finding a spot where nobody else is within 50 miles
  • speculative fiction (the broader genre encompassing science fiction and fantasy)
  • Green Bay Packers
  • football ranking algorithms, both college and the NFL
  • geography and GIS

Spectacular selection, quality, and customer service. They're simply the best place to get spices, and food magazines agree.

Very good seafood with several entrees caught fresh that morning on the coast. The Mahi-Mahi with crab and salmon Pontchartrain were both excellent. And the shrimp and grits are classic and delicious.

The go-to place for everyone in downtown Columbia, and a good choice for vegetarians. The tofu marsala is a favorite of meat-eaters and vegetarians alike, and H-G's beer is delicious. Hunter-Gatherer has a high attention to detail, and everything they serve is dependably good.

A fine visitor center with attached restaurant. Try the frybread taco.

Mediocre. The prices are high compared to similar restaurants in Columbia, and the food was nothing special, even bland. They were out of ingredients like mint (how can a Lebanese restaurant be out of mint?!?) and didn't bother to ask us before serving without it. It seems they're trying to be somewhat upscale but there's a TV with football and enormous coolers of sweet tea out: these are hallmarks of less expensive places (like Al Amir). We entered from the parking lot but were not greeted, and had to find a waiter to get a table. Overall, a poor value for the money.
