What happened since the Nuit Blanche in Review ( April 2015 ), for one, New Horizons is getting closer to planet Pluto (yes, it's my blog, I can call whatever body in the solar system a planet). I started a Facebook page for Nuit blanche. We also had 12 implementations made available by their respective authors. Nuit Blanche reached 4 million page views, saw the great convergence in action, wondered the next steps after commodity sequencing and contemplated some blue skies, hoped that compressive sensing solved one of the most important problem of our times, got some feedback from readers, had an interesting machine learning meetup in Paris, and saw compressive sensing at work. We also had some in-depth studies, job offers, a book announcement and some videos.
