I don't see any free power here. Where do you get the hydraulically pumped water from?  You need to count the cost of pumping the water and subtract that from your power output and then you'll find that you are actually energy negative (unless you live next to a cliff or dam.

The deadline for the Week 1 Review Questions is next Monday September 3rd (11.59pm US PDT). So if you're interested in machine learning, there's still time  to join.

Just finished Udacity's Statistics 101 and it was was a blast!  Next up, Machine Learning (again).  I'd recommend Stats before ML since ML really builds on the Stats formulas.  Stat builds up to Linear Regression and Confidence Intervals.  ML covers LR briefly then moves on quickly to more advanced mulch-variate analysis.

As an aside, I did most of the calculation work for this class in Python, then implemented the same algorithms in HP-48 RPL, then, near the end, started using R.  There is a great R IDE here.  http://flowingdata.com/2011/03/02/rstudio-a-new-ide-for-r-that-makes-coding-easier/
The base R package (you'll need both) is http://cran.r-project.org/.

Looking back, I should have started with R.  It makes the work of solving ML and Statistics problems so much easier.

Nothing would change for you but every Unit you do would count as one point for the team. And if you have questions about a special topic or class you can ask your question in our Facebook group and the team trys to help you. And last but not least with your Units you support two young people and make it possible for them to travel to their dream university if we get at least the 7th place. So feel welcome if you want to join ;)

Just like paypal, only for bitcoin!  Nice site with e-commerce abilities giving small businesses a way to accept and use bitcoins.

Like Stack Exchange? 
Like Machine Learning? 
Now we can use ML to help improve SE and get paid in $$$ to do it.  

Anyone want to team up on this?

Kaggle is a platform for data prediction competitions. Companies, organizations and researchers post their data and have it scrutinized by the world's best statisticians.

No user names, only a id number to correlate across questions.  It's a  very difficult dataset to learn from since the text is the primary analysis data.  There are a few metrics like number of posts and reputation of the poster, but those can only give us loose probabilities at best.

It looks like overall there will be tons of "edge" cases with text analysis and NLP being the only way to extra real meaning.

I've also considered analyzing the posts for the existence of code with the theory being that posts with code are less likely to be spam, but we'll have to see if that's a valid assumption.

I sold metals to Lone Star Coins and it was a fantastic experience. They quoted me a better price over the phone then other shops in the area and explained it would be based on the spot price at the moment I entered their shop. They met my expectations and promptly paid me the agreed upon amount. This saved me many hours of promotion, and distribution of my assets and allowed me to liquidate a large quantity in less than 1/2 an hour. Great place, I'll definitely deal with again.
