In an effort to bring you more and better content here is 45 minutes of me using R fumbling with an unwieldy public data set. Think I'm going to livecode my work on FBI crime report data from here on out so if you are really bored or really curious, there will be a YouTube live channel you can drop by and hang out with me in.

Feedback welcome on the audio/video quality here, etc.

I don't see the value at all. It felt inauthentic and canned and made me think less of both athlete and brand. Do marketing people live in their own bizarre reality or am I the one who is weird relative to the average viewer?

Retouched - the best photos from my trip this fall to Montana and Wyoming. A few duplicates due to me experimenting with my smartphone and different lenses. Had a great time in beautiful fall weather in Montana.

I'm excited to see someone working hard to find ways to credit the researchers and developers who work hard to ensure that the software scientists use is accurate. Great write up about this important effort. 
Creators of computer programs that underpin experiments don’t always get their due — so the website Depsy is trying to track the impact of research code.

Such great history, excellent exhibits, and plenty of information and tours to keep you busy. I recommend the canal tours, which really give you a feel for the history here.

The park is a short drive from Billings and well worth the stop. There is a recently added interpretative center which helps you understand the timeline of the caves and the significance of pictographs. The caves are a short hike. At first the pictographs seem faded, but with some looking you can start to make out the faint paintings of cave residents from hundreds or thousands of years before. You get a good sense from the landscape why people have been drawn to this place for thousands of years. It's peaceful and awe inspiring.
