‎Peter Menzel* meets Michael Pollan. Photographic ethnography on eating through the contents of people's refrigerators.

* If you haven't read Material World, Peter Menzel asked families from around the world to take everything out of their house and assemble it on their front porch. It's awesome.

It's official: "data scientist" is a much sexier title than "statistician."

But data scientists aren't necessarily statisticians. Many statisticians don't even need to wield real data (but data scientists, one might assume, do). But nevertheless, I guess if its true statistically... or should I say...I guess the data speaks for itself.

I just unlinked my Facebook account from G+ since I was seeing an increase in random friend requests. I guess this is a sign that these two worlds don't really mix well.

New Big Mac index from the Economist. The Brazilian Real and the Euro top the charts for overvalued currencies.

I'm not comfortable with the monotonic transformation of data into information - I can never go back to the raw eggs once I have knowledge!

+Sharad Goel and team at Yahoo Research have a pretty comprehensive look at what actually spreads: not much of anything.

Interesting. The question at the end of the article I heard first on Car Talk / NPR, though it was with poisoned wine and mice...
