Everyone's comment in this thread is correct per se, "you need precise language to describe math", "you didn't work hard enough to read the article", "you are lazy", "wikipedia is not for teaching", etc.
You are all correct.
However, I would like a resource that helps me understand the math *without* becoming an expert. Or at least better tools. Look - it's been 13 years since College. I don't remember all the terminology. However, there are many times when I would like to dive deep into a field of mathematics, or at least refresh my knowledge (stats is a good example). I find wikipedia less than helpful in this regard -or least that grokking the page takes a ton of time and effort.
Gah. Yet another unintelligible wikipedia mathematics article. For once I did like to see an article that does a great job *teaching* about a subject. Perhaps wikipedia isn't the right home for this sort of content, but my general feeling whenever reading something is wikipedia is that the content was drafted by a bunch of overly precise wankers focusing on the absolute right terminology without focusing on helping the reader understand the content.
no... my company builds an HD encoder / modulator that takes VGA/component in and outputs QAM. zeevee.com. Unfortunately still a bit too expensive for residential installs.
The twisted folks have been working on web frameworks for years (nevow/athena comes to mind). One problem with twisted is that the core devs don't focus much on marketing (ala RoR) so not many people know about it. These guys had a good comet implementation before the phrase was coined.
