I mean, pandas is getting exponentially better every single year. Mathematica has gotten marginally better in the same time period. Python is probably not kicking mathematica's ass in terms of capability, but I know that even in my industry (quant on wall street, where $3000 is a rounding error), python/pandas users outnumber Mathematica users probably 1000:1.

Hi Professor Kaiser! Taking your class was one of my favorite experiences at MIT, and How the Hippies Saved Physics is one of my favorite books in the genre of history of science. In that vein, can I ask if you have any interesting or notable perspectives on the relationship between contemporary physics/science and contemporary counterculture?
