Reading The Concrete Tetrahedron. “In most stages of our discourse, the book by Graham, Knuth, and Patashnik can be used as a reference to many additional techniques, applications, stories, etc. However, the present book is not meant to be merely a summary of “Concrete Mathematics.” We have a new twist to add to the matter, and this is computer algebra.” (See John D Cook’s review on MAA.)

Great list of useful ressources for Racket.
I finally got rid of the lovely doom themes (one and nord) and got used to spacemacs light theme. As Nikita Prokopov once said (see his alabaster theme), comments are important: “Most themes try to dim comments by using low-contrast greys. I think if code was complex enough that it deserved an explanation then it’s that explanation we should see and read first. It would be a crime to hide it.” They are pretty nicely highlighted in the light theme. Also the font lock for Org code blocks is so great that I use it for Markdown mode as well.

TIL “Rather than showing a continuous probability distribution, Hypothetical Outcome Plots (or HOPs) visualize a set of draws from a distribution, where each draw is shown as a new plot in either a small multiples or animated form.” I didn’t know this technique had a name.
I just spent 3 hours with Getting Clojure: Build Your Functional Skills One Idea at a Time. Very enlightening book. Expect a quick review in a few days.
Teach Yourself Racket (a flânerie by Prabhakar Ragde). Very nice tutorial (and I really love the CSS design for Scribble documentation on desktop and mobile displays).
Time to take a few days off.
Game of Thrones, Season 3: Done. Lot of unexpected deaths.
