brain foodz

During the week I read that coursera was moving to a new platform and that many of the courses were not moving across and were up for grabs, so I grabbed the chrome plugin and downloaded a whole bunch of lectures for Don and I to watch at some point.

Among other things, I snagged:

computer science 101

greek and roman mythology

foundations of business strategy

machine learning

model thinking

social psychology

(more) machine learning

new models of business in society

introduction to cryptography

fundamental of electrical engineering

solid science: research methods

I’ll leave it as an exercise to the reader which belongs to whom!


While I was downloading, I received an email from the Ever Evil Amazon offering me up to 80% off selected kindle books, so there was nothing for it but to add these mostly unknown to me authors to the ever-growing unread stash. But, hey, bargains!

elizabeth edmondson: a man of some repute (a very english mystery – book 1) – $1.49

elizabeth edmondson: a question of inheritance (a very english mystery – book 2) – $1.49

matthew fitzsimmons: the short drop (the gibson vaughn series) – $1.49

the best australian essays: a ten-year collection – $4.09

gunnar staalesen: the writing on the wall (varg veum) – $1.09

peter corris: the marvellous boy: cliff hardy 3 – $5.79

viveca sten: still waters (sandhamn murders book 1) – $1.49

Not a bad haul! Of course now I need to actually read them.
