Highlights
Quantopian and Steve Cohen

The company will manage up to $250 million of investment capital, provided by Steve Cohen. The investment capital will be allocated to members of Quantopian who create successful trading algorithms on the Quantopian platform. The algorithm authors own all their own IP and are paid a royalty if they decide they want to accept investment capital to power their algorithm. My favorite pull quote from the article is where they describe the backgrounds of successful algorithm authors: [T]he creators of winning algorithms include a mechanical engineer with a Ph. D. in computational fluid dynamics in Sydney, a data scientist at an internet mapping company in Denver and a consultant in Malta with a master’s degree in mineral and energy economics

Privacy Model for Notifications

We live in a weird new era where I nearly always have full control of what information I share and whom I share it with (assuming I have an indefatigable interest in navigating permissions settings for my various social services), but I have no control over my information once it leaves me. I don’t want my friends to be able to control my notification settings, and yet, I wish I could control their settings when it comes to my content. Your content is your own until you share it, and then suddenly it’s the recipient’s content too, as a received message and intuitive privacy controls implies that a recipient should control their content. The email design decision is less intentional and more an artifact of the information architecture of how email works in a stateless distributed early-internet design (how can you take an email off a remote server you don’t own? ), but it’s still an interesting design choice nonetheless.

A blog written by Andrew Parker, a VC in Palo Alto with Spark Capital. Musings, ramblings, and other half-baked thoughts produced on a whim. Syndicating here for Tumblr followers and email subscribers. Related lazy-web request: does anyone know a good way to mix together the RSS feeds of Tumblr and Medium so that I don’t have to do these cross posts for my Feedburner email subscribers?
