Can I get some feedback on this ( download and open the D3-in-Rmd.html file to read it in people-friendly formatting ;) )
I'm going to try and get it out on Medium but I can't just copy/paste so if you guys wouldn't mind critiquing while I work on this it'd be pretty badass.

@a-2252 second sentence, it should be its rather than it's. Interpret is misspelled in the "two new problems" section. Otherwise, looks interesting! I've written my fair share of RMarkdown documents and this is a new one :smile: I'll also still need to get acquainted with D3 :laughing:

No spellcheck in rstudio :'( thank you! I hate D3 because I hate JS, but also I love D3 because it's soooooooooooo much fun.

@a-2252 RStudio has spellcheck! You just gotta manually tell it to check... :worried:

Goddammit. Can you tell I haven't used it in a while? And that I rarely used it before? RNoobProblems
@apottr it is and that's why I have problems with it because it's fantastic but JS... It just isn't.

@a-2252 no worries! RStudio is quite a great product with lots of features. So don't be too hard on yourself! :smile:

I've been enjoying it, but it's been just ove one week since I started using it seriously so I'm not exaggerating by calling myself a noob lol

@a-2252 Nice! :+1: You might also want to check out htmlwidgets for adding JavaScript stuff to R Markdown documents.

I'm familiar with htmlwidgets. I supposedly have met one of the people who made it but I don't remember any such meeting...

People

I went to a meetup today: PyData: wavenet and Panama papers

Very interesting today.

The first, insights about WaveNet, a neural network model to simulate the actual texture of raw audio. The sound of human voice was indistinguishable (think of Siri: you quickly get it is a robot...). What it is still not solved is assigning real language to that artificial voice though. We went through a code written in Keras: very nice!

The second was about the Panama papers problem, and analysing the data using networkX and community API. I also commented through this channel a previous meetup this summer where the same problem was analysed using neo4J.
