I don't go to many blogs, but when I do it tends to be DataGenetics
. I don't even know how to explain the articles... a lot of it is data and math related, so if you like either one, or both, check it out. I'll post a few links to articles that you might find interesting:
- You may have seen Amidakuji in Mega Man X or at least one of the Mario Party games. I didn't know it had such a long history of use.
- This is fucking with me. I hadn't seen it before and I don't get how it works, but it guessed the card I chose 7 times in a row. Since the first run, I haven't made any motion with my mouse over any of the cards, so apparently that's not a factor.
- Visual Cryptography is pretty interesting... it involved overlapping seeming random static images to reveal hidden pictures.
- Statistics related to the game Risk may be of some interest to baord game players.
- This is about a program he wrote where generations of rectangles evolve to best replicate a given picture. Very interesting if you're into programming, but cool nonetheless.
