January 2014 news

Welcome to the January edition of the gwern.net mailing list; the previous edition was December. If you do not want to receive these monthly emails, there is an unsubscribe link at the bottom.

The purpose of this mailing list is to be a summarized version of the site RSS feed (which lists every patch, no matter how small), overlapping with my Changelog page, but in a push/notification medium rather than pull. It also includes material from my Google+ & the LW media threads.
