I am, once more, reliving my Air Force days. I am strapped into a seat designed for a midget, jetting across the Wild Blue towards the shores of Lake Michigan, where I will deposit myself at the farthest reaches of the internet for two weeks. Dispatches might become irregular, responses will be slow.
According to reliable, but anonymous sources, well known to your author, the site WMBRIGGS.COM has finally climbed to the first page of the Google search results, when using the term “statistician.” Try it yourself.
Unenlightened engines, such as Yahoo and Bing, have not yet joined the revolution.
I am unable to verify the Googlgasm because they have my cookie, and searching for anything statistical always plops my name up first.
If this wondrous news can be verified—it is only tentative—it must mean that riches will soon be mine. Or so I have been told repeatedly by Search Engine Optimization mavens, who make their livings driving sites to top search spots, and who tout their services more vociferously than the Lemon Drop Kid.
In preparation of my upcoming wealth, I have begun to spend freely, not to say profligately. I figure whatever goes out the door now, will only come back to me treble. I’ve never been one for jewelry—mere shiny rocks from the ground—but I could always use a new hat. My eye is on a steel blue Borsalino fedora.
As a courtesy to the inevitable flood of new readers, I have compiled a page of my most awesome posts concerning probability puzzles, statistics, and the statistical analysis of global warming. Hardy perennials all.
When doing this, I realize how little we’ve covered some subjects and how much remains to be done. So stick around!
The page, found here permanently (see the upper-right portion of your screen), is reproduced for your delight and edification.
A collection of links to fundamental posts in probability, statistics, and statistical methods in global warming research.
