For a combination of vanity and practical reasons I would like to know how matplotlib fared.

Ernie Moniz is on Wait Wait!
We asked the nuclear physicist — who either goes by the nickname Ernie, or ought to — how much he knows about the Sesame Street character Bert.

Awesome (seen on the Listserve). If I drove, I would definitely sign up for this!

Yesterday was momentous for math, women, and Prof. Maryam Mirzakhani, first female Fields medalist.
Maryam Mirzakhani is the first woman to ever win the Fields Medal – known as the "Nobel Prize of mathematics" – in recognition of her contributions to the understanding of the symmetry of curved surfaces.

+Ethan White on teaching and research with ipython notebooks. Also, science needs data tools! 
IPython project packs text, code, figures and tables into one document.

Sometimes, just for good measure, I say stuff that's been said many times before.
Git and GitHub are the 'laboratory notebook of scientific computing'.

By the way, for the record, I do know github is a hosting platform, not a version control system. These are not exactly direct quotes...

I share my pinpoint google location with select people. I have three offices. I would like to use my pinpoint location to trigger a flag on my website that says either "Office 1," "Office 2," "Office 3," or "Not at the Office."  Anyone know which part of the Google Developer API docs will give me the locations API for something like this?

YES! +Matthew Turk for the win! I had forgotten about IFTTT. I had google-api blinders on! And, yes, +Marcus Hanwell , that button is EXACTLY what I want. I'll tell you when I make this happen. :D

Neat! 
 
Making Data Science coLaboratory

Have a project that would benefit from the ability to have multiple people with varying skill sets collaborate directly through simultaneous access and analysis of data? Struggling with cryptic installation errors and the varied requirements of different machines and operating systems? 

The coLaboratory project, created by Google Research, +Matthew Turk, and the +IPython/Jupyter development team, seeks to address these issues by merging open source products with Google technologies, providing a collaborative data analysis environment for both programmers and non-programmers.  

Check out the Google Research Blog below to learn more, including a link to the coLaboratory Chrome App, which offers a simple one-click installation of coLaboratory, IPython, and a large set of popular scientific python libraries (with more on the way).
