Netflix Grand Prize & what's new

1. The Netflix Prize is over, won by the 7-person team BellKor's Pragmatic Chaos. Congratulations to the winners.

I ended up in 43rd place individually, and in 34th place in the two-person team with John Tomfohr.
My best reached place was 3rd in June 2007, ten months after the start of the contest, and the best reached place of our team was 2nd, at the moment of creating it, one day before the first Progress Prize in October 2007.

2. is now my homepage. Basically, that website will be the center of my presence on the web, with my current e-mail, links to things I share, and so on.

3. Some summary of my service lolrate/svdsystem "recommender system for everything". I launched it in December 2008, it was online for a few months, and had about 300 users. Now closed. It will probably evolve into another project.
