Hey everyone, this is just a quick note to say what’s going on.
Recently I’ve been slowing down a bit on blog posts. I’ve been travelling and settling in at my Summer job in Boston where we’re looking at a lot of really fascinating questions w.r.t. clustering and learning theory. For various reasons (my proper hardware isn’t with me, time constraints, etc.), I haven’t been able to get down to the meaty posts I’ve been hoping to work on, such as the follow-up to Bezier & Picasso and more on category theory. I will do my best to continue posting, but until about September most of the posts will be on the mathy side with no hand-made images and no Youtube videos.
On a brighter note, I will be attending this upcoming Monday’s meeting of the Boston Python User’s Group! It’s going to be pretty fun, and as of this writing there are 43 spots left. So if you’re in the area, if you enjoy free pizza, and if you want to come and meet people and code Python for a few hours, I’ll be there working on some stuff related to stable marriages. You’ll know me as the guy who keeps talking about math.
As a side note, I noticed there is no comparable meetup in Chicago. Despite my already busy life (i.e., maybe in a year or two), I was considering starting a Python meetup in Chicago. Then I thought about how small the software scene is in Chicago, and wondered if I would be able to find enough sponsors and people to give talks. It’s more of a pipe dream right now, but maybe someday it can become a reality. At least I can start by signing up to give a talk (cf. evangelize mathematics) at the Boston meetup later next month.
In other news, I’ve got a small surprise tomorrow in the form of a fun guest post on a friend’s blog. Keep an eye out for that.
Until next time!
