3 YEARS AGO (FEBRUARY 2015): MEMORY LANE

3 years ago...

3 years ago…

MONTHLY MEMORY LANE: 3 years ago: February 2015 [1]. Here are some items to for your Saturday night reading and rereading. Three are in preparation for Fisher’s birthday next week (Feb 17). One is a Saturday night comedy where Jeffreys appears to substitute for Jay Leno. The 2/25 entry lets you go back 6 years where there’s more on Fisher, a bit of statistical theatre (of the absurd), Misspecification tests, and a guest post (by Schachtman) on that infamous Matrixx court case (wherein the Supreme Court is thought to have weighed in on statistical significance tests). The comments are often the most interesting parts of these old posts.
