Spotted an 'advanced analytics' blog of a similarly-named consultancy coding ordinary least squares (ie OLS) as 
    b_hat = (X.t()*X).i()*X.t()*y;
when just about all statistical computing books say NOT to do this.

Even more sadly, it used RcppArmadillo which has a better example right in the package.

FAIL.

This is good fun: Answer 24 questions revealing regional variation in use of German, and get a guestimate of your (linguistic) "home".  

And it is weird -- while I have been gone for 25 years (!!), the analysis based on the 24 answers put me ... squarely in the wrong place. Oh well.

Thanks, +Google​ and +feedly​ for letting me know that I should read this trending post about +Rcpp​. But somehow it has a feeling of deja vu...

Ah, to enjoy my fifteen minutes of fame ;-)

Stunning.

I don't see much on their website. Is there something that they've made besides the announcement?

Peace is more than the absence of war.

Word.
In a sly way, Prince has always been a political artist, but on Saturday, he left nothing to nuance when he released a tribute to Freddie Gray on his SoundCloud page.

RcppArmadillo 0.5.000.0 is now on CRAN and in +Debian 

This took a moment as I missed a regression / need for change with two packages that has now done.   Nice set of changes coming from Armadillo as Conrad posted a few days ago.
