IPython notebook UI 自訂
嘗試利用 IPython Widget 和 JavaScript 來控制 IPython 的 cell 行為。 目前可以控制 cell 的高度還有模擬 vim, sublime, emacs 的 key binding。 程式碼在  http://nbviewer.ipython.org/github/tjwei/tjw_ipynb/blob/master/vim.ipynb 我目前用的 css 在  https://github.com/tjwei/tjw_ipynb/blob/master/custom....

If you care about open-source software, please read this carefully and consider the impact of the Dept. of Energy - one of the largest funders of open-source software in the world - publishes the following as an official statement.  This document is being submitted to Secretary Moniz and will presumably be read by Congressional staff.

"There has been very little open source that has made its way into broad use within the HPC commercial community where great emphasis is placed on serviceability and security. There is a better track record in data analytics recently with map/reduce as a notable example.
...
It should be noted that the most significant consumption of open source software is China and it is also the case that the Chinese are rare contributors to open source as well. Investments in open source or other policy actions to stimulate creation are likely to produce a disproportionate benefit accruing to the Chinese."

If you know any of the committee members responsible for this document (they are listed at the end), considering contacting them about this.

Great job +Matthew Turk !

Over the last year I've worked with an awesome folks (+Kester Tong  +Mark Sandler, +Corinna Cortes , +Matthew Turk,  +Gideon Mann  +Arnaud Sahuguet, +Adam Berenzweig) to understand how people collaborate on data analysis and to build better tools to support them. Yesterday, with the help of +Fernando Perez and +Wes McKinney we revealed this work at PyCon APAC.

We've created an interactive, collaborative analytics tool by integrating Google Docs, Chrome, and IPython. You can open a notebook from Drive. You can share notebooks like you would share a Google Doc. You can comment and edit collaboratively, in realtime. There is zero setup, because all the computation happens in Chrome. You can even quickly and easily package your analytics pipeline into a GUI for folks that don't want to program. In effect, you can go from zero to analytics with little impedance.  

What's even better is that you can build on our work. It will all be open source on top of public Google APIs. We'll have a larger Google Research blog post about this work when we release the code and the Chrome application.

Mercurial 3.0 was released last week! This release includes new features such as "hg config", new template functions, faster (lazily evaluated) revsets, and a number of bugfixes. Binary packages have been released for Windows with other platforms to follow soon.

I hope I can start looking at the system soon ....
Via +Mark Subbarao, check out this awesome rendering of a human CT scan -- done by Jeffrey SubbaRao with yt, and in support of the very cool NeuroDome (http://www.neurodome.org/ ) project!

Something very legitimate, but difficult to be thought of by people having a family name used by tens of millions of people, like me.

And while living in a culture using a totally different writing system than the language (English) I use to expose my online identity, I have a basic protection from the concerns raised in this post.
(Shareable version.)

This happened to me -- I said "NO" every time Google tried to connect my G+ name/profile (thankfully, I don't use my VERY identifiable and unusual legal name), and then I "liked" a comment on a video and responded to it, and it flashed through a quick screen (I did not click on anything) that said something like "Connecting to G+ profile" (without any type of "You cannot leave a comment without connecting" or even "By leaving a comment, you are agreeing to connect" opt-out), and the "like"/comment was suddenly connected to my photo and G+ username.

Google, there is a REASON that I didn't want to connect my G+ profile, or any identifiable profile, to my fucking YouTube account -- THE COMMENTERS ON YOUTUBE.  I don't want them following me to other social media platforms, trolling, harassing, and abusing me.  I don't want to have to be blocking sexist, racist, homophobic, sophomoric, monosyllabic jerks every time I log in.

And I did NOT WANT TO CONNECT MY PICTURE to freaking YouTube -- the name is bad enough, but unless I want to change my G+ icon to something other than this photo of me (which I happen to be quite fond of), I'm now going to have to deal with crude sexual passes whenever I want to leave a comment on YT (which, btw, I'm quite disinclined to do at this point.)

Why do they not understand that shit like this makes (especially female) users feel UNSAFE??!?  If your name is "Bob Smith," you're a face in the crowd.  If your name is "Eleanora Rashid-Feldman" (to pull a random name out of a hat), you've just been identified as female, as someone who may be a member of one or more minority groups, as someone who may be interracial or in an interracial marriage, and YOU'RE SUDDENLY REALLY, REALLY EASY TO FIND.

If your name only has one or two shared namesakes in the world (or, as in my daughter's case, none -- I apparently have one, but he's a man in Eastern Europe), someone can very easily find out where you live, your phone number if it's listed, your address with a little effort.

If your name is "Jennifer Smith," you're less vulnerable, because your name is more common -- but, frankly, is Google's point that it's okay to treat people with less-common names differently, by sharing their legal-name data whether they like it or not, since they don't have the ability to get lost in a sea of people with similar/identical names?

Whatever the case, if you're a battered spouse or a trans woman or an ex-Mormon or an out queer teen who hasn't had The Talk with all of their family members yet, or ANY NUMBER OF OTHER REASONS WHY YOU MIGHT NOT WANT TO BE TRACKED DOWN BY SOMEONE, having your name linked in this fashion, without asking permission or giving the ability to rescind permission, creates an unsafe and frankly appalling environment of privacy infringement.

My daughter already has to worry about potential employers being able to Google her with ease due to her unusual name (Google didn't exist when she was born), so she has asked me not to be my usual outspoken self under my legal name, because it's too easy to connect us.  And she's very careful to never use her legal name online, other than in activities directly connected to her university, because she doesn't want to deal with political, sexual, or religious discrimination from someone who might otherwise hire her.

So, thanks, Google -- I guess "Don't be evil" went out the window a while ago.  Your "real names" policy, and particularly the way you went about linking YouTube with G+ profiles even for users who had specifically declined to link them, multiple times, is evil.

The worst part is that I can't even delete my damn YouTube profile now, even if I wanted to, without deleting my entire G+ account and profile (and probably the Gmail account associated it, which I've used for about a decade.

Uncool, Google.  Uncool.
