First Anniversary Of Ripples

January 7, 2015

(This article was first published on Ripples, and kindly contributed to R-bloggers)

If people do not believe that mathematics is simple, it is only because they do not realize how complicated life is (John von Neumann)

I started this blog one year ago and the experience has been better than I could have imagine:

  • Ripples has been viewed about 30.000 times
  • 49 posts published (The Sound Of Mandelbrot Set was the most-viewed)
  • R-bloggers is my top referring site (thanks to Tal Galili for his support)
  • Visitors come from 141 countries: most of them came from The United States. Spain and U.K. were not far behind (below you can see my map of the empire)

I have met a lot of wonderful people along the way like Andrew Wyer with whom I wrote a post about 3D-Harmonographs, people of Merkbar,  a musicians who asked me a plot for the cover of their new album (I will post about this project in the next days) and Gregory Piatetsky from KDnuggets (I expect also doing something with him in the close future).

I think this new year is going to be funny. I still have lot of experiments in my mind that I want to explore with R.

Happy 2015!
