Why switch? I use Ruby, when I can and Python when I can't.

Would really love to see ruby forks of popular ml libs.

Or is it because Python is better perfomance-wise?

Really good question since I really enjoy using Ruby, more so even than Clojure and Haskell.

I too would like to see Ruby ports of some of the popular ML libraries. The classifier gem provides an example.

Can somebody extract the parts where he is actually talking about technologies, concepts being used and potential technical breakthroughs? (... ''breaktrhough'' ..)

-----


I agree, this article seems to be just entirely fluff. I was hoping I'd see something about the actual technology itself.

-----


I was starting to wonder if I lost my mind, reading over the first 3rd to half of it the article felt... empty. Glad I'm not TOTALLY crazy.

Yes absolutely! A platform where not only the answers are praised, but also curious questions.

Do you check the stove 3,4 times when leaving the house? Are you sometimes anxious, that you didn't properly shut the door after haveng left the house?

I have this theory where people who do these things are good programmers, since they will check their commit a lot of times until it is perfect to push. But maybe this is more about mastery than having an aptitude for it. :)

You might have OCD.

On the other hand, if you're too much of a perfectionist, you might never get larger tasks done because of obsession to detail.

Neurosis don't have much to do with mastery of programming IMO.

I don't care much about things in the house, but I do check my commit a couple of times before pushing it in.

So, it's like HN?.

On a more serious note:

Twitter has a large following of powerful/smart people who don't leave over night. Sure, over time these people could leave, but why would they? What would a twitter competitor offer that twitter can't offer?

Me too!

I guess the OP just got used to reading notation and now thinks it's natural for him to read notation.

They are probably doing the credit checks themselves, by aggregating a bunch of public and or private data and doing the analysis on their own.

Life is a game, I pity those thinking life is a story or movie, since that's quite a passive life to live.
