Anyway I'm sorta kinda back (new and improved with PMship) as in i'm trying to be around multiple times a week. In the meantime not much special going on going through the typical struggles of an Electrical/Computer Eng undergrad student.
I'm also currently reading The Signal and the Noise: Why Many Predictions Fail-but Some Don't by Nate Silver. I'm only about two thirds of the way though but have thoroughly enjoyed it so far. As the title implies the book talks about predictions/forecasts, the reasons for their success/failure and how to make them more accurate. This is done though many examples ranging from sports to economics to weather to poker. Although the author is a statistician the book is not very math/math-theory heavy (although there is a decent number of stats to back up the claims). I would recommend it to everybody as its a great read.
