This is the first technical post on my new blog, where I plan to continue writing about what I learn from self-study of mathematics. I'm currently reading E.T. Jaynes' *Probability Theory: The Logic of Science*, and Christopher Bishop's *Pattern Recognition and Machine Learning*. While I understand many LessWrong2.0 readers are far above my level in maths, maybe there are some who would benefit from and enjoy conversation about the sort of things I'm learning.
