I thought I'd add a weekly list of links that I found interesting over the course of the week. Here is the first installment. Some of these links may be old, they are presented in the week that I get to them, not necessarily the week they hit the 'tubes.
Blue Brain Project - A project to simulate a brain, pretty neat.
Where smoking kills most people - In developed countries, surpriiiiiiiise.
Shazam - Not Magic After All - How that Shazam program works, pretty neat.
F# and workflows - A short blurb + links about F# and workflows (which are monads). F# seems to have some pretty neat stuff.
Algae and Light Help Injured Mice Walk Again - Pretty amazing article on 'optigenetics".
Machine Learning - Stanford - Videos of Stanford course on Machine Learning (according to klafka the best part of stats).
