So lets give this a legit try

Posted by Great Being #1 , Jan 10 2013 · 137 views

So as some of you may know I've basically been MIA from BZ/BS01 for 2 years. This is due to mostly your typical RL stuff then again you never know, maybe the end of the bionicle line affected me subconsciously or something :P
 
Anyway I'm sorta kinda back (new and improved with PMship) as in i'm trying to be around multiple times a week. In the meantime not much special going on going through the typical struggles of an Electrical/Computer Eng undergrad student.
 
I'm also currently reading The Signal and the Noise: Why Many Predictions Fail-but Some Don't by Nate Silver. I'm only about two thirds of the way though but have thoroughly enjoyed it so far. As the title implies the book talks about predictions/forecasts, the reasons for their success/failure and how to make them more accurate. This is done though many examples ranging from sports to economics to weather to poker. Although the author is a statistician the book is not very math/math-theory heavy (although there is a decent number of stats to back up the claims). I would recommend it to everybody as its a great read.

I got that book for my dad for Christmas. We're both Nate Silver fans, and the book is most certainly an interesting read all the way around.

I've been meaning to read that! Nate Silver writes some really great articles.

Also, welcome back!
