I registered the domain Passing Curiosity with the intention that it become a productive outlet for my rather short attention span. Rather than waste man-years clicking “Open Link in New Tab” on Wikipedia, I would make that time productive by summarising what I read. Dead time, no more!
Alas, I got distracted. Nearly three years have passed and Passing Curiosity is still just a neglected blog. Over the years I’ve maintained a few and almost everything I posted to any of them can be found here.
The most recent posts are:
The May meeting of the Sydney Python user group had talks about Python on the Raspberry-Pi, the pandas library, R, and gstreamer.
The April 2013 meeting of the FP-Syd group had presentations about GPU programming with Accelerate and little languages using the Free data structure.
