Thank you for reading this Techdirt post. With so many things competing for everyone’s attention these days, we really appreciate you giving us your time. We work hard every day to put quality content out there for our community.

Techdirt is one of the few remaining truly independent media outlets. We do not have a giant corporation behind us, and we rely heavily on our community to support us, in an age when advertisers are increasingly uninterested in sponsoring small, independent sites — especially a site like ours that is unwilling to pull punches in its reporting and analysis.

While other websites have resorted to paywalls, registration requirements, and increasingly annoying/intrusive advertising, we have always kept Techdirt open and available to anyone. But in order to continue doing so, we need your support. We offer a variety of ways for our readers to support us, from direct donations to special subscriptions and cool merchandise — and every little bit helps. Thank you.

–The Techdirt Team

    Massively overpriced shit being marked down and called a sale yet again. At this point Mike, you should just ban all non physical products from your suggested shit. Stacksocial not only is unethical yet again, but has a longstanding pattern of it.

    Considering your site often focuses on ethical issues it tarnishes your message to have it associated with this bullshit. Which is more important, your stacksocial bucks, or not being a hypocrite? Here's a hint: being a hypocrite directly degrades your ability to be a force for good in the world.

      It's pay what you want -- so not sure how you can claim it's overpriced.

      Many people (including me!) have actually found the courses pretty helpful. I'm sorry that you disagree.

      I'm a bit confused as to what we've done here that you find so unethical?

    Does It Mention IPython?

    I recently learned a bit more about IPython, which is a handy way of constructing interactive textbooks. You can have code that the user executes, interspersed with explanatory text, nicely formatted using Markdown markup, including high-quality mathematical formulas.

    I used it to illustrate some concepts of 2D graphics programming. Here the code generates custom graphics, and some of the figures are dynamic: you can interact with them by manipulating UI widgets.

    The fun thing is, GitHub automatically shows you a formatted view of a notebook when you click on a .ipynb link. Of course, it won’t run the code; to do that, you will need to download the notebook and run it in your own installation of the notebook viewer.
