Efficiently representing graphs in a program
The purpose of this post is to outline something that seems obvious in retrospect but which may not occur to programmers. Maybe with your mind jogged a bit you’ll invent something awesome. By “graph,” I don’t mean a visual plotting of a numerical function. I’m referring to this kind of graph - a data structure in computer science. The link above is informative but...

You want the physicist to talk to your grieving family about the conservation of energy, so they will understand that your energy has not died. You want the physicist to remind your sobbing mother about the first law of thermodynamics; that no energy…
Logic and SAT Solving for Dummies!
I wrote a rather opaque post the other day about my attempt to write an answer set solver which at its core uses something called a SAT solver. True to my own distinctive writing style, I vomited quite a bit of text that probably made no sense to anybody (including and especially the actual mathematicians pioneering this research). So, this post is intended to be a non-programmer friendly...

bougie: Sometime last week the video of my ignite talk went live on youtube. It’s had over 21.000 views at the time of me writing this, been shared by the likes of Gina Trapani, Anil Dash and Guy Kawasaki. I’ve even been congratulated once on my TED talk. But most importantly, it’s…
The school of the future
The students will show up on a semi-regular basis to a physical discussion lab. They’ll sit down with peers and discuss the topic. They might pull out some work they’ve done on the project and hash out details with their classmates. The teacher will sit at the front, acting as a sort of oracle. When students need help and cannot deduce a solution, the teacher will ask them a...
Occupy Austin was evicted by the police after voting a few months ago that the police were their allies and they shouldn’t do anything to upset them. Way. To. Go.

I’m going to offer a relatively cheap course in Computer Programming. Depending on how many people are interested, I’ll set times and dates and places. You dig? TELL YOUR FRIENDS.
