Hope you all had a lovely weekend. If you haven't seen already, I recently added searching to the website. It let's you search through all previous issues + the articles that were featured (something like 2050 articles from my newsletter and the ones from Morning Cup of Coding). To be frank, it's functional, but pretty shit. I didn't want to invest a bunch of time into something that no one wanted, so I refrained from parsing the content of the articles/issues, and instead chose to just index the titles, descriptions, and keywords. If people end up using it a lot, I'll consider upgrading to a fully fleshed out search engine that indexes the content of the articles, and maybe even in their whole domain.
In other news, I'll also be using the article data for some experiments with machine learning. My current naive hope is that I could use the model to "rate" articles based on their content. Maybe in the form of a browser extension or something. Imagine being able to hover over a link and instantly see the % rating for the content. Looking at the fact that big companies invest millions (if not billions) of dollars in trying to do this already, I'm not getting my hopes up too high. Who knows though? Maybe it's just niche enough to work.
Also just wanted to put this question out to you guys and gals, if you know of any cool data (sources) relating to solar energy, would you mind forwarding it to me? I've recently started building out the solar section for my startup, and would love to add some more cool shit.
Anyway, here's the issue.
