In four weeks, my book comes out in the US. Insanity. If you're interested, you can pre-order at the usual spots.
@conjugateprior You reminded me of a great Vonnegut quote from Breakfast of Champions. "The proper ending for any story about people it seems to me, since life is now a polymer in which the Earth is wrapped so tightly, should be that same abbreviation, which I now write large because I feel like it, which is this one: ETC."
@anandphilipc both are very much about how to draw inferences and make decisions from incomplete and noisy data.
My Intro to Cognitive Science students get a surprise lesson in parasitology in Week 2 in order to think about the relationship between cognition and environmental predictability. Trying to fill in some gaps here.

Dad Songs is the second album of goofy, sweet, bizarre indie-pop singalong anthems by The Small Dinosaurs. It's about being a dad and part of a family — with heartfelt songs about favorite foods, cat friends, and going into labor. p/r/m/m by me!
Available anywhere you stream music, including Bandcamp. I hope you love it 🖤

I read an earlier draft of this paper by Francisco Gil-White a few years ago and found it to be a very insightful critique of modern academic institutions. I haven't read the new version, but I imagine it's only gotten better. https://papers.ssrn.com/sol3/papers.cfm?abstract_id=4504597
@futurebird a few weeks ago I was at the gym and saw Fox News repeatedly refer to the NYC district attorney as “far left.”
As promised, here's the full album, out today. DAD SONGS is 13 indie/garage/art-rock songs about the milieu of fatherhood. Enjoy.
