Hello and welcome to the first (or zeroth?) issue of Weakly Informative!
I’ve always tried to constantly do some technical reading: whether that’s keeping up with papers, looking over some tutorials or studying a textbook. However, I now want to develop the habit of writing about what I read, since it helps me think about and critique my reading, instead of just passively absorbing information. Hence this newsletter!
This newsletter will be for shorter-form (and only roughly polished) thoughts and responses to my technical reading. For longer-form and more polished pieces of writing, check out my website.
In terms of topics, it’ll be whatever I’m reading or learning, and what I think about them. I don’t want to box it too much, but I’d expect newsletters on natural language processing, Bayesian modelling, open source Python and other data-adjacent fields and gizmos.
As for programming, you can expect a newsletter once every
two weeks (a.k.a.
fortnightly) month, on a random Thursday.
Hope you enjoy!
