"But unless you already understand and believe in the vitamin model of nutrition, the notion of a trace substance that exists both in fresh limes and bear kidneys, but is absent from a cask of lime juice because you happened to prepare it in a copper vessel, begins to sound pretty contrived."

The Lifespan of a Lie – Trust Issues – Medium
"Somehow, neither Prescott’s letter nor the failed replication nor the numerous academic critiques [of the Stanford Prison Experiment] have so far lessened the grip of Zimbardo’s tale on the public imagination. The appeal of the Stanford prison experiment seems to go deeper than its scientific validity, perhaps because it tells us a story about ourselves that we desperately want to believe: that we, as individuals, cannot really be held accountable for the sometimes reprehensible things we do. As troubling as it might seem to accept Zimbardo’s fallen vision of human nature, it is also profoundly liberating. It means we’re off the hook. Our actions are determined by circumstance. Our fallibility is situational. Just as the Gospel promised to absolve us of our sins if we would only believe, the SPE offered a form of redemption tailor-made for a scientific era, and we embraced it."

In Defense of Interactive Graphics
Rather a poor defense if you ask me. "Subtle navigation buttons can provide access to hundreds of interesting charts you otherwise would have to cut out of a piece." Well, yes, but that's the point: don't include the kitchen sink, focus on the charts you need to tell the story. "Sliders can invite readers to test your simulation code and try out their own scenarios." Sure, but at the very least you will want to talk your readers through those scenarios that are most important or plausible, and any kind of interactivity or diy is then just a cute extra.

What interactives can do (that articles can’t) – Elliot Bentley – Medium
The evolution towards static graphics in news organizations has been a good thing, because it has gotten rid of an enormous amount of superfluous interactivity which turned data journalism projects into enormous time sinks, made it hard for readers to find the story behind the data and sometimes hid that there really was no story to be told at all. But there are still good uses for limited forms of interactivity, and this article lists most of them – even if I find it a bit too charitable at times.

The puzzle: Why do scientists typically respond to legitimate scientific criticism in an angry, defensive, closed, non-scientific way? The answer: We're trained to do this during the process of responding to peer review. - Statistical Modeling, Causal Inf
"We think of every critical review report as a pain in the ass that we have to deal with, not as a potential sign that we screwed up. So, given that training, it’s perhaps little surprise that when our work is scrutinized in post-publication review, we have the same attitude: the expectation that the critic is nitpicking, that we don’t have to change our fundamental claims at all, that if necessary we can do a few supplemental analyses and demonstrate the robustness of our findings to those carping critics."
