Some more interesting links-3, Quantified Self, Bandits

Extreme Quantified Self. This MIT professor analyzed about 90,000 hours of video / 140,000 hours of audio / 200 terabytes of home videos to understand how his child's speech developed. This is probably one of the coolest things I've seen. He started a company (Bluefin Labs) around the technology he used for the analysis and then sold that company to Twitter for a fat wad of cash. This is his TED talk

You definitely want to utilize the resources at your local public library. These days they have amazing resources like access to Safari which gives you access to O'Reilly and Packt titles

Some very good advice if you're on the interview trail - Always Be Coding

A nice visualization / simulation of what's happening in a Multi - armed Bandit problem
