2 more (and waiting for another)


After reading about the release of THE djangobook i immediately went to my favourite bookstore to buy it. Unfortunately they didn’t have it in stock but it should arrive soon.

Instead i bought another book that was on my shopping list as well as a second, more exotic one

Programming collective intelligence

Having read rave reviews (e.g. here and here) it was a must buy for me. Especially since all the code samples are written in Python. Expect me to test the algorithms with the news data sets i hav at hand.

The algorithmic beauty of seashells

This book definitely falls into the category: Bought mainly becaus of aesthetics and haptics.
