Charles Murray is once again peddling junk science about race and IQ - Vox
"Our bottom line is that there is a responsible, scientifically informed alternative to Murrayism: a non-essentialist view of intelligence, a non-deterministic view of behavior genetics, and a view of group differences that avoids oversimplified biology."

Data Visualization “Versus” UI and Data Science
The data viz community has been going through some public introspection in recent months with a series of widely-read blog posts. This is the most recent, and worth the read.

I’m very interested in seeing “designer” become accepted as a top-level data role, alongside analyst, scientist, and engineer, although I also think it’s the most specialized and least common of the four. Curious to hear disagreement with this.

As you get up to the top, it’s about the business, not about the individual, and oh so increasingly true in the USA! I left to do consulting (and now teaching) because I’m more interested in the data problem space, and facing new design and technical challenges, than I am in job titles and salaries. There’s a lot to learn out there today, and lot of new challenges, especially in data science. Data scientists have explicitly said they want help from visualization.

How citation distortions create unfounded authority: analysis of a citation network. - PubMed - NCBI
Citation is both an impartial scholarly method and a powerful form of social communication. Through distortions in its social use that include bias, amplification, and invention, citation can be used to generate information cascades resulting in unfounded authority of claims. Construction and analysis of a claim specific citation network may clarify the nature of a published belief system and expose distorted methods of social citation.

yesterday by heyyouapp Genetic Engineering Will Change Everything Forever – CRISPR
Designer babies, the end of diseases, genetically modified humans that never age. Outrageous things that used to be science fiction are suddenly becoming reality. The only thing we know for sure is that things will change irreversibly. [ ]
