Enjoy the issue!
PS Please tell your friends about the Gazette! It's a great way to show support.
I make videos. I've tried all sorts of setups across different operating systems. The only setup that works well is ScreenFlow on a Mac. It works flawlessly. It can capture audio, video, your screen, all at the same time. It also gives you an amazing video editor. Layout your videos, add annotations, zoom in on sections of the screen, etc. I don't think I could make LispCast videos without it. I recommended ScreenFlow before I was an affiliate, I still recommend them, and I use them for all my screencasts. It's a bargain at $99. Please support the Gazette and give it a try.
Folks, the time has arrived. After a month of incubation in the PurelyFunctional.tv Early Access Program, it's ready for launch. I'm launching this week. Please sign up to find out when the course becomes available.

Speaking of Clojure/West, Nola Stowe and I are giving background and doing interviews about the Clojure/West t alks. It's similar to what I did for the Clojure/conj in November. If you'd like to maximize your experience at Clojure/West, sign up for free and get prepared.
I've been a fan of Daniel Dennett since I first discovered him back in 2001 by way of a book of essays he co-wrote with Douglas Hofstadter. He's witty and incisive. But most of all, I like him because he incorporates modern scientific thinking to help unravel difficult problems. Any of his lectures are great (and there are many recorded on Youtube).
I've been learning Docker recently and this article helped a lot.
I'm getting into Boot, and someone recommended this library for incrementally compiling and reloading ClojureScript. It's similar to Chestnut, but uses Boot.

Marvin Minsky is the father of Artificial Intelligence. I recently began watching and loving this recording of his MIT course.
A massive tutorial that covers ClojureScript, core.async, and Om.
