Folta, GMOs, Khaled Asaad, City State, Regression,








Before the Folta Affair, was debatable. Today it’s the public’s only protection. Why it’s OK to ‘snoop’ on scientists http://t.co/BgrTU3iNa1

Think slowly, act quickly. [The only Latin proverb that translates better than original. “Deliberandum est quidquid statuendum est semel”.]

Nassim Taleb Educates a Quant

Now you all know I’m a Taleb super-fan, but this is excellent and hilarious. It’s not going to mean much to the general public, but to those of us following the argument it’s genius.  Would love to watch NNT’s face as he saw it for the first time. I like to think that he’d get a few laughs out of it as well, but who knows?
It has 55 views so far and was created with the very fun Xtranormal software. Here’s the link.  It’s attributed to Peter Cotton. Snooping around on the net I see a Peter Cotton associated with Taleb’s name here, which leads me to believe that it may have been created this Peter Cotton. Would love to get confirmation on that if only to thank him for a good laugh.
