Over the summer of 2012 I did some research in applied mathematics at the Illinois Institute of Technology. My research partner and I made a poster summarizing the results and presented it at a couple of conferences.
Much like a turtle, I never leave my shell. So I made it really nice!
My dotfiles are on GitHub. There’s a lot of customization for Vim and the terminal prompt. Someday I’ll package them properly, but for now there’s a half-baked approximation:

The rakefile is quite old, and doesn’t install any of the various dependencies. See the README for information on those.
rake installto backup your existing dotfiles.
I first came across it when I read Chaos by James Gleick in 10th grade. Right after that, I read Hofstadter’s Gödel, Escher, Bach (like every other introspective nerd). This was my first glimpse of real mathematics. I had always thought I didn’t like math, but after seeing this I realized that I just didn’t like math class.
The Mandelbrot Set is the set of complex numbers \(c\) for which the orbit of \(0\) remains bounded under iteration of this beautifully simple equation:
A while back I made a Node.js port of a Ruby module for scraping public Pandora data.
