What happened to Jeremy Howard?
 
He last seems to have posted http://www.emaildiscussions.com/...475#post354475 back in January.

I've done a search through the archives and I can see no reason for his absense.

I hope he is well.

Look on the forum he has been on this weekend....:D

Are you sure, I found that thread (his last post) by looking at his profile, it said that was his most recent post.

Jason

Terry 30 Apr 2006 05:58 PM

Yes just looked at the date :o well only 13 days

robmueller 30 Apr 2006 11:08 PM

His RSI is still bad so he can't type much :( so he's been concentrating on other things...

I wish you a speedy recover Jeremy.

This isn't an old thread :confused:

Or do you mean Jemermy was found in an old thread?

Surely your not suggesting we would prevent people from seeing old threads?

Terry 1 May 2006 08:15 PM

It was stared over a year ago.....:D

On this Twitter screenshot it looks Jeremy Howard is still using FastMail. :cool:

BritTim 4 Apr 2017 12:33 PM

Resurrecting this thread just makes me feel sad. Jeremy has a real talent in building a group of satisfied and loyal customers. While FastMail, today, has never been stronger technically, its downward spiral in terms of customer relations began when Jeremy ceded control to Opera.

Terry 4 Apr 2017 07:05 PM

Yea the good old days and it was so exciting to be part of the concept.

Bamb0 4 Apr 2017 10:25 PM

Yup I guess he got tired of it all................

I really like Jeremy..... Its sad his voice wasnt loud enough :(

That's sad we hope he soon recovers.

Oh I hope so too.

That's young. Weird, that I resurrected this thread now. Hope he recovers well.

Jeremy Howard, Oct '16

Thanks for setting up these forums Rachel! I know how powerful good forums can be - I started an email provider in 1999 called FastMail (still going strong at www.fastmail.com) and we had our own forum on www.emaildiscussions.com . IIRC, I had over 25,000 posts there! I hope that we can create a community here that can lead to a lot of interesting and friendly conversations.

I'm Jeremy, Rachel's co-founder and the main instructor for this course. I'm originally from Melbourne (pronounced "mel-bun", not "mel-born"!), Australia, and have lived in SF for around 5 years. I moved here when we got funding for an earlier startup, Kaggle, and the VCs were keen to have us in the bay area. I'm very glad to have moved, because I've found SF an exciting and stimulating area.

As well as Kaggle and FastMail, I've also founded a couple of other startups - Enlitic, and Optimal Decisions Group (now part of Lexis-Nexis), and before that I was in management consulting.

I'm passionate about the idea that deep learning can help to solve a lot of society's most important problems, and believe that that won't happen well unless we make it much more accessible. I hope that this course and community will help to make that happen.

Wow.....I hope he gets better!

Wish Jeremy a quick and easy recovery ;)
All best wishes to Jeremy and his family.

Merovingian 9 Apr 2017 09:16 PM

I'll also go on record wishing Jeremy all the best. When I came on it was mostly a two man show (Jeremy and Rob), and everything we have with FM can directly be linked to them.

Jeremy Howard talks in a Twitter feed about his bad experiences with communities (Reddit):

Quote:

This is a great question. During the last 25+ years on Compuserve, Usenet, mailing lists, various forums, and now Twitter, I've posted tens of thousands of times and seen forums come and go. The successful technical discussions were not what I expected... 1/9
In his 4th tweet he made a reference to EMD:
Quote:

That ancient forum is still active, after well over a decade. It's called EmailDiscussions, and it has strict rules and very proactive moderation. The moderation bothered me for a while, but I now think it was critical to its success 4/9 http://www.emaildiscussions.com/announcement.php?f=6

The moderation is what keeps a site like this GOOD.....

All sites staff should be as involved as Edwin wants everyone to be here..... We have a loving community and thats what it should be all over the net :)

Recently my wife showed me an interesting article about Covid-19, and looking at it I said "Hey, I actually know the guy who wrote it!"

gj15 12 Jun 2020 03:32 PM

I think he's the author of this article too https://www.theguardian.com/commenti...op-coronavirus.

As a fellow Data Scientist, I'd love to know what Jeremy Howard thinks of Data Scientist @jjchamie's analyses.

I've found them compelling. CoViD-19 in :
