Some very interesting posts, including an old published paper, discovered recently...

  • “When failure becomes invisible, difference between failure and success may also become invisible”http://youarenotsosmart.com/… on “survivor bias”
  • On wine testing, and rankings, http://online.wsj.com/article/… “A Hint of Hype, A Taste of Illusion”, by lmlodinow very interesting
  • “Subjectivism, a reply in defence of classical actuarial methods” http://actuaries.org.uk/system/…(be gentle, it’s a 1976 paper) via J_P_Boucher e.g. “Risk theory is a rather esoteric branch of actuarial theory … The practical actuary, however, finds that he hardly ever uses this theory

but there were still at least a dozen of post worth reading, here and there
