To establish my Nerd God street cred, here’s some links:

  • Atheist chat: Hitchens is on fire, Dawkins comes off assholish (surprise!) and dogmatic (ironic!), Dennett more pragmatic but a bit senile and I don’t know who the other dude is. Its worth two hours of your time.
  • ARIMA ain’t a Caribbean island: The best introduction I’ve seen to the Box-Jenkins method for fitting time-series data.
  • Social innovation: Udell, the best writer on technology in these parts, says g ain’t new inventions, its some people mastering the technologies and then teaching their learned techniques to the masses.
  • Happy Birthday Perl!
