Motivated by work on a book and by  the stacks projects, I just wrote a new web-based LaTeX editor, which I've just released. You can try it now by making a free account at https://cloud.sagemath.com, then creating a project,...

If you haven't already I suggest your circle +William Stein who posts as and when he continues to develop this.

The optimal training time for a typical machine learning algorithm is the length of one episode of friends! Use Mad Men's episodes for more complex algorithms.

For even more complex problems, go home/to bed is also an option. You get results and a fresh perspective. "Mañana method" makes sense at times. :-)

+Siamak Faridani I have used Rcpp repeatedly on a brand new Windows 8 tablet. I installed RTools easily the first time and have compiled multiple functions and packages.

I do not agree with the tone of this essay but I can at least agree with 10 of these principles :)

In the United States, 40 percent of the food produced annually goes to waste. Doug Rauch, former president of Trader Joe's, wants to do something about it. He's opening a restaurant that will transform produce past its sell date into healthful take-out food.

Until I see a foolproof evidence that bootstrap simulations are reliable I'll keep treating them as woo-woo, you know we cannot trust mathematicians :) jk

I want to start learning the Julia language. What is a good place to start? is there any ebooks on it yet?

I like what I've seen of Julia: simple syntax, good performance, etc. Depends if you find being an early adopter exciting or frustrating. I haven't looked at it in a while, bu when Julia first came out it was developing very rapidly.

It's always good to know more than one language at least for perspective. So you might benefit from learning a little Julia even if you have no intention of using it professionally.

R is a statistical language. It's great for analyzing a data set, but it's not a general-purpose language, or at least it wasn't designed to be. I'd recommend learning a general-purpose language for more general programming.
