IPA's have finally made their way to the Belgium beer drinker's palate.
 
Dutch India Pale Ale. Sound completely wrong but tastes rather good.

Interesting. But I'm not sure why they call it an alternative to the IPython notebook. Isn't it just an alternative to other IDEs?
Today we're excited to introduce a new project: Rodeo. Rodeo is an IDE that's built expressly for doing data science in Python. Think of it as a light weight alternative to the IPython Notebook. We've been using it for projects internally, but today we're releasing it to the public! We hope you like it as much as we do. A quick overview. Click to enlarge. Why we built it I like the IPython Notebook for presentations ...

I think because it uses the IPython kernel under the hood, so it is essentially just an alternative front end instead of the usual IPython notebook. IPython worked hard to make applications like this one possible.

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.

Thanks for sharing.. I will share too.. I hope such behavior (banning MPL) will stop. Most of my colleagues are using Python and they might be interested to read such a non-sense story!

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 …

"According to an analysis of census data by the University of California–Berkeley's Center for Labor Research and Education, 25 percent of 'part-time college faculty' and their families now receive some sort public assistance, such as Medicaid, the Children's Health Insurance Program, food stamps, cash welfare, or the Earned Income Tax Credit."
Once in a while, someone publishes an article about adjunct professors who resort to food stamps in order to survive on the rock-bottom pay that so many college instructors are expected to live on. But until today, I had never seen a statistic summing up how many academics are actually...

Mandatory helmet laws and glow-in-the-dark spray paint just show who really owns the roads.

My buddy, +Charlie Persson  , 30 year old adult then, learned to ride one of these in just a hour or so one year at the Maker Faire. I'm not sure why he was able to learn so quickly.
 
Three things:
1) Shameless self promotion.  People who like this video might also like our 3 minute video on another unsteerable bike:  https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=rNQdSfgJDNM
2) Destin. You have made a nearly perfect and perfectly fun video.
3) I think the word "understanding" is somewhat misused in this video.  I think you mean "know how to".  You are saying that conscious understanding of something and ability to do it are unrelated.  One can have either one without the other. Most of what our brain does is like that. We are fooled by those things that we watch ourselves learn, imagining that we have conscious control where really most things are mostly below that part of our brain.

Abraham Williams originally shared:
 
In a particularly spectacular display of corporate delusion, John Deere—the world’s largest agricultural machinery maker —told the Copyright Office that farmers don’t own their tractors. Because computer code snakes through the DNA of modern tractors, farmers receive “an implied license for the life of the vehicle to operate the vehicle.”
It’s official: John Deere and General Motors want to eviscerate the notion of ownership.

Yumi and I went to this truly American Mexican restaurant tonight on a whim. I think the amount of food was the largest amount I've ever been served at a restaurant. We ate about 1/3 of our plates, were completely stuffed, and still hardly fit the remainder in two large take away boxes. Blew my mind.

Totally, I could have downed this at age 17 too I suspect. But I'd feel extremely stuffed. If that was your regular portion, that's impressive.
