Wow! Around three quarters of a year since I posted here. Gonna stick a speed tag in my browser and start trying to write here more. Thoroughly fed up with reddit and Twitter, I would feel better shouting into my own echo-y tin can here.
Paul McCartney is on the radio and I'm studying neural networks with Geoff Hinton via Coursera. Good stuff, I've worked with neural nets before, way back in the late 80s but so much has changed since then. Fun to stretch my brain a little but for the first time in my life learning something new is tiring. I've literally fallen asleep during several lectures and that should be hard because Geoff is a hoot. His sense of humor is subtle and deep.
It's just a bit past the winter solstice and I'd like to wish you each and all a prosperous winter/summer (depending on your equatorial relationship.) a very Merry Christmas and an especially happy new year.
