Here are some statistical and other links. The previous linkpost in this blog was in August, so I have achieved a streak of 2! Or almost 2, as it is already October 13. Let’s call it two positive observations in the series of 2.41 months. Laplace’s rule of succession would suggest that we have a…

Hubbard together…

Hubbard together with some friends in a book club setting. Previous parts…
Reading How to Measure Anything, vol. 2
(Summary in Finnish: Oppimispäiväkirjamerkinnät jatkuvat, hitaasti mutta kumminkin. Aiheena luvut 3 ja 4; luvusta 3 löysin paljon sanottavaa kun aloin kirjoittamaan.)
