Natural Language Processing of Viget.com Articles

In a previous article, I talked about scraping article data from Viget.com. I pulled the title, author name, hashtags, date, and text from each of our posts. My goal was to analyze the text data using topic modeling and word embeddings, in an attempt to learn more about the type of content we are producing on Viget.com. Natural language processing is a large field of study and the techniques I walk through in this article are just the tip of the iceberg. I will go over preprocessing text data, vectorizers, topic modeling, and word embeddings at a high level. Hopefully, this article gets the wheels turning in your mind about how you too can analyze your large bodies of text and gain understanding with natural language processing. Unlike using Bayesian models to forecast customer lifetime value, these natural language processing techniques may have less-obvious use cases for business-minded readers. But…

An Epic Fortnite Gaming Rig for $1,001!

So, my 12-year old decided that she needed a more powerful computer for her favorite video game, Fortnite and I promised her, years ago, that we’d find a time to custom-build her own computer. Finally, I’ve been able to make good on my word! Purchase list! I wanted my daughter to lead the process end-to-end, so, she was responsible for not only finding the right parts but also price-comparing them and making her ultimate “purchase list” so that we could talk through it. We discussed the pros and cons of larger motherboards to allow for larger expansion opportunities and power consumption requirements for smaller (or more powerful) components, like the CPU or GPU. Starting to arrive! A little bit of math was required, to ensure that we got the right PSU (Power Supply Unit) to handle her components but it wasn’t that hard to put the master list together.

YEN Retreat in Pictures

It’s pretty much impossible to communicate how amazing our first-ever #YENretreat was and how it literally changed my life… in so many ways. To start, there are 3 things that blew my mind: How amazing our community around YEN really is and how diverse their backgrounds and stories are. As a good friend mentioned, faith and hope (in a better tomorrow) were consistent themes from all of those in attendance, which is consistent with most of the larger community in the blockchain, bitcoin, and decentralized space. These things represent a brighter future and it can’t get here fast enough! The work that my brother has done to build, cultivate, and love on these folks is impossible to truly calculate and appreciate, so much so that I had to pull him aside and ask him to forgive me for not understanding the mountain of work that he’s put into building this company from…
