Found a very useful website with detailed explanations and implementations of many of the concepts taught in AI Class.

TIL that clicking on the empty space in the navigation bar returns you to the top of the page after you've scrolled down. Nice touch. #googleplus

I just noticed that there is a 'share' field next to the notifications icon, that lets you write a new post without returning to the top of the stream.

I've been waiting for this for a long time.
 
The new latex editor is now live at https://cloud.sagemath.com

  * Side-by-side latex editing, with re-build on save (you can set the autosave interval if you want).

  * Full forward and inverse search (using synctex)

  * Nice parsing of the error log file, with buttons to jump to corresponding place in tex file and pdf file.

   * Preview uses configurable-resolution png's so will work in browsers that don't have any support for pdf.

  * The command to latex your document is customizable.

  * The build process should run latex, bibtex, and sagetex automatically if the log file says they need to be run; otherwise you can click a button to force a bibtex or sagetex cycle.

  * Scales up to large documents -- my test document is a book!  For me sitting at home working on my 134 page book, the time from making a change and clicking "save" to when it appears in the preview pane in high resolution is less than 7 seconds. 

  * Advantages over https://www.sharelatex.com and https://www.writelatex.com/:    free (unlimited collaborators), sagetex, forward and inverse search, higher (customizable) quality previews, if you need a full xterm for some reason (e.g., you want to manage your project with git!) you have it, scales up to large documents better, more sophisticated real-time synchronization algorithm (the others lock the editor when the network drops, or reset when it comes back -- not good), I tried to make this work on ipad/android (though you'll want to use a bluetooth keyboard). 

* Disadvantages -- I've put little work into properly dealing with multi-file latex documents,  error messages are not literally displayed embedded in the tex document (not sure I want this though), you must have a cloud.sagemath account (free),  single file download is limited to 12MB right now.

I know what you mean! I felt that the questions were pretty ambiguous.
