Reading +Peter Norvig's code is an aesthetic experience. Usually, code obfuscates what is happening, and comments help explain what's going on. Norvig codes so beautifully that the code actually makes the concepts clearer.

He is the poet of Python.
Probability, Paradox, and the Reasonable Person Principle¶. In this notebook, we cover the basics of probability theory, and show how to implement the theory in Python. (You should have a little background in probability and Python.) Then we show how to solve some particularly perplexing ...

G+ Questions - Desktop  -

"Of all the preposterous assumptions of humanity over humanity, nothing exceeds most of the criticisms made on the habits of the poor by the well-housed, well-warmed, and well-fed."
