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. #dataviz

Why Racket? Why Lisp?. By the author of Beautiful Racket. #scheme #lisp

Literate Programming using Scribble (or maybe literify?) would be a very nice alternative to Org babel if only other PLs were supported, IMHO. #org #scheme

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. #clojure

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). #scheme

Thinking about the future Macbook Pro while reading hypothetical release date and future specs from various sources. I like some of the rumours. #apple

Found this while browsing GitHub for numerical methods implemented in Racket Scheme: Herbie aims to make floating point problems easier to find and fix. #maths #scheme

The Surface Book 2 is everything the MacBook Pro should be. Sure. Sadly, no MS OSs ever came close to the polished macOS UIs. Maybe we should just let it go, install Arch Linux with some kind of i3 and let Emacs takes care of the rest of our journey. #apple

Although I no longer use RStudio, I must admit that I keep looking at RMarkdown and derived products on a more or less regular basis. Just found this little gem: radix (via nj_tierney). #rstats

Second day with the new setup at home. The keyboard is great, the external monitor has somewhat blurry font, probably because of the lack of display port on the Macbook 12″. I will probably buy a 13″ Macbook Pro soon. #apple

We’re done with 24 and The Walking Dead. Now it’s time to start watching the full series of Game of Thrones.

The built-in keyboard on my MB 12″ is dead. It seems it doesn’t like coffee as much as I do! From now on, I will probably be working with this: #apple
