We open sourced our Clojure computational notebook library, Clerk, today. Here's an example of combining Clerk with my WikiData wrapper, Mundaneum, to interactively ask for some physicists and what they invented/discovered. Not bad.

@curious_reader I'm planning to put a few examples of different fun things in a repo soon. 🙂
This repo has a bunch of example notebooks showing off various Clerk features. Currently, the documentation assumes you are a Clojure dev with your own preferred setup. I'll add better docs in the coming days, along with more examples. 🙂 (The WikiData bits are in
