Geek Reading October 7, 2015

The Geekess leads the day again, but this time it is a very positive post about what makes a good community. More than anything, I think the post was only written because of the much larger number of positive comments on her last post. On Rants on Machine Learning, they show us what to do with “small” data. This is very similar to my opinion on ML, if you are not a statistician, learn about statistics as it will be very useful. David MacIver talks about the economics of software correctness. Basically, it is ridiculously expensive to ensure that software is correct, meaning people don’t die because of a bug. For the typical software shop, this is an unreasonable cost.

As always, enjoy today’s items, and please participate in the discussions on these sites.
