I’ve been writing code again. Essentially tutoring a friend who has to wield some Python as he learns some natural language data analysis techniques. I’ve been remembering I actually know Python (I mostly applied in the context of Jython … long story … it even has a Peter Thiel digression) and learning little bits of NLTK, which once in a recent past life, I had a direct report trying to educate me as he applied it. Anyway, said friend got a 9/9 on his first assignment. He really leaned into it after initial despair and reticence, but I feel a little proud for myself too.
