  1. "The review reinforces the common mistake (apparently made by Lubet too) that Ethnography’s role is to furnish us with hard-to-obtain facts about the social world. But is that what we get from the great ethnographers like Geertz or E. Goffman? No. Rather, great ethnography offers us deep, general *insights* See e.g., how Homans uses Whyte. *Thats* why Whyte is a classic."
  2. Looks interesting and reminds me a bunch of Andy Abbott's book on Methods of Discovery. I should go back and read that one again...

  4. An old post by Andrew Gelman on the whole "daughters make you a lefty" phenomena and how there is a potential bias introduced by the fact that having children is made of intermediate outcomes. Something that might be addressed with multilevel hierarchical models (no surprise coming from Gelman, I suppose).
  5. Gelman on whether to use a simple or complex model and how to build one up.
  6. A quick look at some of the issues raised by computation research using FB or other social networks.
