quick note: this looks great, but you should make the notebook titles
on your main page and in the README.md be nbviewer links, just like
for the Bayesian Methods book:

http://camdavidsonpilon.github.io/Probabilistic-Programming-and-Bayesian-Methods-for-Hackers/

That simple change will make the page far more useful immediately for
users who may not know how to read notebooks.

We have a simple script to auto-generate those links that you can copy
and modify for your URL pattern in a minute:

https://github.com/ipython/ipython/blob/master/tools/mknbindex.py

Cheers,
