Awesome chrome extension for sending links to friends & chatting about them.

This is so cool! I hope they put out Firefox and Safari versions in future.

It's a measurement of throughput. So the maximum data transferred/sec at any given time.

Good call, I'll update the pricing to clarify that.

-----


Hey sorry, this was a typo. It's cents :)

-----


Hey thanks for checking it out. We're working on a few ways to make the pricing easier to digest.

We've been discussing a free starting point, but haven't solidified anything just yet.

Right now we're bootstrapped. There's only three of us, so the focus so far has been on getting the product in a useable and workable state.

-----


I think without a free starting point of some kind, this is going to be a tough sell. Perhaps a week free or something like that would enable someone to see if they like it enough to start paying for it.

-----


Great, it'd be sweet to have you involved! FFT, polynomial fit, and d3.js would be huge steps. For me, the most important thing is ensuring that all changes are application driven. Building a library that's designed to be used is top priority.

-----


This is a fantastic list. There are a few people who've expressed interest in working on eigenvalue work. I'll definitely be adding a couple of these in, in the next few days. I'll keep you posted.

-----


Sparse and dense matrix math and eigensolvers would be really nice. Especially solvers that let you efficiently get the eigenvectors associated with the smallest eigenvalues as this comes up in graph and image partitioning.

-----


Yeah, I really tried to keep elements of the browser in mind. Games and graphics definitely can benefit from algebra and calculus.

-----


That'd be great

-----


Most certainly. Would love to push the statistics further. Working on integrating some econometrics tools in the next version.

-----


My primary focus from here on out is statistics and matrix algebra focused on powering analytics. So yes, some of those functions would be of interest to me.

-----


Ok. I'll start on some of it tonight.

-----


great! ping me at sjkaliski@gmail.com if need be

-----


Will do. I forked on Github from philipithomas. I'm mail@philipithomas.com.
