Two cities where your editor has had a lot of fun are San Francisco and Berlin. Conversely, we've always found Brussels to be particularly boring and unpleasant, and have been cautioned by many folks to skip Dallas if possible. We used Google Sets to generate this list of cities which fit the first category but aren't in the second:
- são paulo
- washington dc
What can we infer from these lists? Whatever it is we like about SF and Berlin can hopefully be found in Barcelona and Zürich as well - be it art, technology, or general excitement. Maybe these cities were all on Damien Hirst's last world tour, or hometowns of Roboexotica participants. Conversely the second list looks like places people are because they have to be (no offense Boston, but outside your universities you don't have much going on). A first guess might be these are all cities with major airports where people go to get a connecting flight to somewhere good.
If you're interested to help build an open source replacement for Google Sets, please contact us through the website or email EmbeddedLinuxGuy [at] GMail [punkt] com. We are especially interested in folks who want to work with machine learning, text processing, and large databases. Which, according to Google Sets, means we're also looking for "natural language processing", "data mining", and "fun".
