Nature published a nice writeup (in the news & comment section) on ipython notebooks and how they're being used to share reproducible results.

It even includes a live ipython notebook! http://www.nature.com/news/ipython-interactive-demo-7.21492

Behind-the-scenes, each time someone views the notebook a new docker instance is spun up to run ipython. It's using the tmpnb project. Quite slick!! http://lambdaops.com/ipythonjupyter-tmpnb-debuts

Getting to hold 3d seismic data is pretty neat! 

I built a model from some data I used in my dissertation and had it printed through Shapeways. Seismic data makes a pretty good stress-test for the resolution of the "full color sandstone" material.  In retrospect, I should have chosen a non-brown colormap and perhaps AGC-ed the hell out of the data beforehand.

It still turned out pretty nicely, though.

Going to try to 3D print some things from my dissertation as teaching aids... Full color 3D printing is nifty!!

Pretty nifty! I keep wanting to hook things up to VTK and build a rudimentary seismic interpretation platform with the Oculus Rift.  (Emphasis on rudimentary...)

I recently got a whistle activity monitor for my dog.  Their API is undocumented but has been described in a few places (e.g. http://jared.wuntu.org/whistle-dog-activity-monitor-undocumented-api/).  I threw together a python script to play with the data.

I thought it would be interesting to plot a "punchcard" of Darlin's activity by day and time.  White is no activity and dark red is the most intense average activity.

It's actually really neat what all you can see from this.  Darlin' is a lazy dog when we're not there! (notice all the white during the weekdays)

First off, my wife and I tend to get up and walk the dog around 6am and 6pm on weekdays.  We're lazy and sleep in on weekends.  Poor Darlin' doesn't get a walk until 9am on the weekends! I work a 9/80 schedule so I get every other Friday off.  Notice the spread in walking time on Fridays.  We usually lift on Wed afternoon, so we walk her later on Wednesdays (note the shift in the evening walk on Wed).

Sitting pretty! (Can you tell that we're proud of our dog?)
