When I was doing exploratory signal processing a year ago, the IPython notebook was obviously a good tool. I tried it again recently for bringing old math notes back to life, and that went well too. So I'm putting a little effort into tooling support.
I'm a family man, which gives a certain perspective on the KC area,
the world we live
Between all that, I like to tinker. The bane of my existence is doing
things I know the computer could do for me. Have you ever had one of
those ideas that won't let go, not even to eat or sleep? My mom said
the first time she saw me like that was after they gave me tinker-toys
for my 3rd or 4th Christmas. She said I was in "mad scientist mode,"
just like my father, a chemistry professor.
