If it ain’t baroque, don’t fix it. But if it is, you can tell Google… and it’ll correct itself. Works on the Google app for iOS (http://goo.gl/vXVzF) and Android (http://goo.gl/gZ5VHV).

Over the last year I've worked with some awesome folks (+Kester Tong  +Mark Sandler, +Corinna Cortes , +Matthew Turk,  +Gideon Mann  +Arnaud Sahuguet, +Adam Berenzweig) to understand how people collaborate on data analysis and to build better tools to support them. Yesterday, with the help of +Fernando Perez and +Wes McKinney we revealed this work at PyCon APAC.

We've created an interactive, collaborative analytics tool by integrating Google Docs, Chrome, and IPython. You can open a notebook from Drive. You can share notebooks like you would share a Google Doc. You can comment and edit collaboratively, in realtime. There is zero setup, because all the computation happens in Chrome. You can even quickly and easily package your analytics pipeline into a GUI for folks that don't want to program. In effect, you can go from zero to analytics with little impedance.  

What's even better is that you can build on our work. It will all be open source on top of public Google APIs. We'll have a larger Google Research blog post about this work when we release the code and the Chrome application.

With the updated Google Search app on iPhone and iPad (goo.gl/PLhbgi), you can now talk to Google naturally and ask follow-up questions. Try asking “how tall is LeBron James?” and then “what about Michael Jordan?” Or how about “who built the Eiffel Tower?” followed by “when was it built?”

Some patterns for fast Python. Know any others?

- Avoid overengineering datastructures. Tuples are better than objects (try namedtuple too though). Prefer simple fields over getter/setter functions.

- Built-in datatypes are your friends. Use more numbers, strings, tuples, lists, sets, dicts. Also check out the collections library, esp. deque.

- Be suspicious of function/method calls; creating a stack frame is expensive.

- Don't write Java (or C++, or Javascript, ...) in Python.

- Are you sure it's too slow? Profile before optimizing!

- The universal speed-up is rewriting small bits of code in C. Do this only when all else fails.
