Performances - Par Eric Hazan
"Ce qui ressort en tout cas de ce vote massif, c’est un sentiment d’absurdité. Absurde, un mécanisme qui amène au pouvoir suprême un homme dont on ne sait rien et qui a fondé son succès sur une capacité rare à ne rien dire (sur la quatrième de couverture de son livre, Révolution, pas une ligne de texte, juste sa photographie en pleine page). Absurde, un système qui donne une majorité écrasante à cet homme pour éviter un danger largement imaginaire. Absurde surtout, cette focalisation sur des élections dont nous sentons tous qu’elles n’ont rien à voir avec nos vies, qu’elles se déroulent sur une sorte de tapis volant au dessus de nos têtes."

What know-it-alls don’t know, or the illusion of competence | Aeon Ideas
"If you watch any talent show on television today, you will see the shock on the faces of contestants who don’t make it past auditions and are rejected by the judges. While it is almost comical to us, these people are genuinely unaware of how much they have been misled by their illusory superiority." – Works with undergrads too.

The Uproar Over ‘Transracialism’ - The New York Times
"Todd Gitlin’s devastating observation about the debilitating consequences of the left’s cultural politics — ‘while the right has been busy taking the White House, the left has been marching on the English department’ — dates from the ’90s, but it has lost none of its pertinence. Only now the battle lines are drawn within the cultural left; the English department was conquered long ago. The spectacle of the left devouring its own children — and of emancipatory liberalism turning into its opposite — may read as farce. But in the context of the wider political emergency we face, the obsessively inward focus of the cultural left can also be understood as tragedy." -- Spot on.

Some natural solutions to the p-value communication problem-and why they won’t work. - Statistical Modeling, Causal Inference, and Social Science
"Our own preferred replacement for hypothesis testing and p-values is model expansion and Bayesian inference, addressing concerns of multiple comparisons using hierarchical modeling . . . or through non-Bayesian regularization techniques such as lasso . . . The general idea is to use Bayesian or regularized inference as a replacement of hypothesis tests but . . . through estimation of continuous parameters rather than by trying to assess the probability of a point null hypothesis."

« Bury me at sea/Where no murdered ghost can haunt me/If I rock upon the waves/Then no corpse can lie upon me » (« If I Should Fall From Grace With God », The Pogues) | Terrorismes, guérillas, stratégie et autres activités humaines
"La mort de Belmokhtar, au sujet de laquelle je glose mais qui n’a toujours pas été officiellement confirmée, est un véritable succès. Comme toutes les victoires que nous remportons, ce succès n’est cependant que tactique et il ne doit pas nous aveugler. En visite au Mali, le nouveau Président va être briefé par des militaires compétents et aguerris qui vont lui décrire le brio avec lequel nous « neutralisons » des ennemis. Je ne sais pas si quelqu’un lui fera remarquer que nous démontrons ce brio depuis plus de quatre ans et que, étrangement, la situation n’a jamais été aussi catastrophique, jusqu’à désormais avoir contaminé le Niger et le Burkina. Tuer des ennemis pendant les guerres n’est pas un but en soi mais un moyen au service d’une vision. Au-delà des discours pompeux sur notre engagement au Sahel, quelle est donc cette vision ?"

Eichmann in Jerusalem is a better guide to Trump Time than is Origins of Totalitarianism
"In just a few passages in Eichmann, Arendt eviscerates that way of thinking: the point is not what one aims to do, it is what one does; the point is not the inner motive, but the field of action; not what your road is paved with, but whether it leads to hell."

JSON Feed: Version 1
"The JSON Feed format is a pragmatic syndication format, like RSS and Atom, but with one big difference: it’s JSON instead of XML.

For most developers, JSON is far easier to read and write than XML. Developers may groan at picking up an XML parser, but decoding JSON is often just a single line of code.

Our hope is that, because of the lightness of JSON and simplicity of the JSON Feed format, developers will be more attracted to developing for the open web."

Wealth and Secular Stagnation: The Role of Industrial Organization and Intellectual Property Rights: RSF: Vol 2, No 6
"Changes in firm strategy and structure partially explain the sources and consequences of rising wealth inequality in America. Combining use of state-created monopolies around intellectual property rights (IPRs) for profitability and firm-level strategies to transform their industrial organization by pushing physical capital and noncore labor outside the boundaries of the firm leads to rising levels of wealth and income inequality among firms as well as individuals. Income inequality among firms in turn reduces growth in productive investment and thus in aggregate demand. Slower growth reflexively deters firms from new investment, aggravating the shortfall in aggregate demand. Decreased protection for IPRs and increased protection for subcontracted workers would help increase aggregate demand and thus push growth back to its prior level, as well as reducing wealth and income inequality among individuals."
