I’m reading the wonderful “Python Data Science Handbook” by Jake VanderPlas, a book written entirely as Jupyter notebooks! And got excited about matplotlib styles but XKCD “style” was missing so I modified a bit the code for rendering the different styles to include it. Below a small part of the gallery (XKCD style is the first line) which is generated by the jupyter notebook available as a gist on github and embedded below.
I love XKCD graphs, for example the following one, and you can create them with Python!!!
The world can be divided in 2 classes: those who understand this XKCD comic and those who don’t.
If you are in the second class and want to move in the first class, you can read the page “Citation needed” on Wikipedia ;)

One of my biggest fear in electronic communication (email mainly and not for dating, eh) is “Am i not interacting electronically with a bot, am I?”. Creating bots able to appear human (Turing test) is a fascinating research area, one I would like to be in, next life. ;)
Face it! I’m your statistically significant other!
So lovely nerdy ;)

My father once told me that the great bloggers od the past are up there, watching over us.
High above the blogosphere, a gap opens in the tag clouds, Cory Doctorow’s voice booms forth …
You need to get out either more or less, I can’t decide.
