Crowd-sourced document on traditional burning practices in California. The doc’s creators are welcoming additions - anyone I know with knowledge/sources to add?

We're collecting statements from psychologists who have lost confidence in one of their own findings. Putting the *self* back into self-correcting! (please share widely)

I’m watching videos this morning about statistical rethinking. I love the “models as golems” analogy so much I’ll be adding “golem engineer” to my LinkedIn profile. You should probably recommend me for that skill.

I'm making the PhD students in my dept read about evolutionary bet hedging this week. Evolution cares about variance! Two papers: (1) Starrfelt & 2012 (2) 2015

There's a draft with an example. I'm not happy with it, because it is still too technical. But maybe has to be.

has a great online course on youtube but this lesson, especially on understanding or not understanding well performing models is great for ML people.

Note that this doc uses same LaTeX style as the book itself, in case you want to make those blue code boxes yourself.

I put online the LaTeX source for the (incomplete) rethinking software manual. If ppl have modeling examples to include via pull requests, would be cool.

Statistical Rethinking (a Bayesian course): GLMs Part Deux: Poisson, ordered logit, zero-inflation. Still behind on encoding video. But slides!

Shorter, a little more technical, more focused on own research. Rob has a different writing style than Joe. Matter of taste which you prefer.

I appreciate the point that not all readers understand the best methods, but I am uncomfortable working on public funds and saying, "I didn't use the best method, because my colleagues don't understand it."

Statistical machismo |stəˈtistək(ə)l mäCHēzmō| noun strong or aggressive refusal to use the best available statistical methods; often justified by an appeal to the rigor of one's study design obviating the need for similar rigor in inference.

Thanks! My experience is limited to the old Fisher example, which I think was toxicology or such.
