Please do not contact me directly asking for technical support for open source projects. Instead, use the appropriate public mailing list (e.g. for Theano, pylearn2, Blocks, NumPy, SciPy, etc.). I also don't have time to offer you free advice on machine learning, deep learning or neural networks. There are many books, research manuscripts and code samples freely available. (If you're interested in hiring me for consulting, please indicate this clearly in the subject.)

I very much prefer plain text messages (rather than HTML formatted with fonts, colours, etc.) in this medium, as I routinely use text-based programs such as mutt to access email. The exception is file attachments when absolutely necessary (for formatted documents, PDF is excellent; please, no unsolicited MS Word files).

In the unlikely event that you have something sensitive to say to me, here's my GnuPG (OpenPGP-compliant) public key (last updated July 19, 2011).
