Against Activism | The Baffler
"To be an activist now merely means to advocate for change, and the hows and whys of that advocacy are unclear. The lack of a precise antonym is telling. Who, exactly, are the non-activists? Are they passivists? Spectators? Or just regular people? In its very ambiguity the word upholds a dichotomy that is toxic to democracy, which depends on the participation of an active citizenry, not the zealotry of a small segment of the population, to truly function."

Why you should care about the Nate Silver vs. Nassim Taleb Twitter war • Towards Data Science
Isaac Faber:
<p>If a prediction does not obey some fundamental characteristics, it should not be marketed as a probability. More importantly, a prediction should be judged from the time it is given to the public and not just the moment before the event. A forecaster should be held responsible for both aleatory and epistemic uncertainty.

When viewed this way, it is clear that FiveThirtyEight reports too much noise leading up to an event and not enough signal. This is great for driving users to read long series of related articles on the same topic but not so rigorous to bet your fortune on. Taleb's and Silver's take on how FiveThirtyEight should be judged can be visualized like this.

Because there is so much uncertainty around non-linear events, like an election, it could reasonably be considered frivolous to report early stage forecasts. The only conceivable reason to do so is to capture (and monetize?) the interest of a public which is hungry to know the future. I will not go into the technical arguments; <a href="">Taleb has written and published a paper on the key issues with a solution</a>.</p>

"Too much noise, not enough signal" - but elections mostly are noise, and figuring out what is signal can only be done afterwards. (And everyone can argue it differently.)
