  5. Myria is a distributed, shared-nothing Big Data management system and Cloud service from the University of Washington. We derive requirements from real users and complex workflows, especially in science.
  6. "Papers We Love is a repository of academic computer science papers and a community who loves reading them." Wait. People do this for /fun/?! ;)
  7. "Just to put these in perspective, if these results are to be believed, not-drinking relative to drinking is almost as unhealthy as being obese, and not-drinking-wine relative to drinking wine is almost as unhealthy as smoking."

  10. "Therefore, do yourself (and us) a favor: don’t ask; get the facts."

  15. "It's not that the old meds are getting weaker, drug developers say. It's as if the placebo effect is somehow getting stronger." I'm not sure that sentence even makes sense, but it sure is intriguing.
  16. Good story about an awesome poster about the dangers of multiple comparisons in statistics in general and in MRI work in particular.
  17. This is nuts. The studies these inferences are based on have known errors and statistically insignificant results. See, for example, this: http://www.stat.columbia.edu/~cook/movabletype/archives/2009/06/of_beauty_sex_a.html How do people keep publishing this crap?
