more songs

So, i dont know exactly how to differentiate between songs of different genres and end up mixing them up. so i make up genres names on my own for reference. see, im a geek and we, in some cases need to be very organised and regular.

so, like i wrote in the last post, i classified those songs as rock.
i classify these as electronic, DJ and rap. i maybe completely wrong, but basically they all sound the same to me.

                                                     Eminem - Lose yourself


                                                  David Guetta - Gettin over you

David Guetta - Love is Gone

Run DMC, Aerosmith -Walk this Way! 


Eminem - Without Me

Eminem - We made you 

and well, as you can see, i am an Eminem fan. people say that music influences life and it is probably true. as for the artist who has influenced me the most. and if someone asked me(someone did and her reaction was just precious :D) i would say Eminem. well yeah, the first time it sounds outright stupid, but think about it. look at the kind of songs he has made over time, the kind of songs he made, the lyrics and content. you can clearly see that his songs have evolved the most over time, just like a kid listening to his songs would change over time. he went through a tough life as well, but took it like a man. well yeah, half of the songs he made are just outright crazy(read awesome), he is in awesome. period.

and yeah, if you have nay other songs you like and think are better than these, do bother to comment.

Animation using GNUPlot

Animation using GNUPlotI've been trying to create an animation depicting a quasar spectrum moving across the 5 SDSS pass bands with respect to redshift. It is important to visualise what emission lines are moving in and out of bands to be able to understand the color-redshift plots and the changes in it.
I've tried doing this using the animate function in matplotlib, python but i wasn't able to make it work - meaning i worked on it for a couple of days and then i gave up, not having found solutions for my problems on the internet.
And then i came across this site, where the gunn-peterson trough and the lyman alpha forest have been depicted - in a beautiful manner. And this got me interested in using js and d3 to do the animations and make it dynamic - using sliders etc.
In the meanwhile, i thought i'd look up and see if there was a way to create animations in gnuplot and whoopdedoo, what do i find but nirvana!

In the image, you see 5 static curves and one dynam…

on MOOCs.

For those of you who don't know, MOOC stands for Massively Open Online Course.

The internet is an awesome thing. It's making education free for all. Well, mostly free. But it's surprising at the width and depth of courses being offered online. And it looks like they are also having an impact on students, especially those from universities that are not top ranked. Students in all parts of the world can now get a first class education experience, thanks to courses offered by Stanford, MIT, Caltech, etc.

I'm talking about MOOCs because one of my new year resolutions is to take online courses, atleast 2 per semester (6 months). And I've chosen the following two courses on edX - Analyzing Big Data with Microsoft R Server and Data Science Essentials for now. I looked at courses on Coursera but I couldn't find any which was worthy and free. There are a lot more MOOC providers out there but let's start here. And I feel like the two courses are relevant to where I …

On programmers.

I just watched this brilliant keynote today. It's a commentary on Programmers and the software development industry/ecosystem as a whole.



I am not going to give you a tl;dr version of the talk because it is a talk that I believe everyone should watch, that everyone should learn from. Instead, I am going to give my own parallel-ish views on programmers and programming.
As pointed out in the talk, there are mythical creatures in the software development industry who are revered as gods. Guido Van Rossum, the creator of Python, was given the title Benevolent Dictator For Life (BDFL). People flock around the creators of popular languages or libraries. They are god-like to most programmers and are treated like gods. By which, I mean to say, we assume they don't have flaws. That they are infallible. That they are perfect.
And alongside this belief in the infallibility of these Gods, we believe that they were born programmers. That programming is something that people are born wit…
