Statistics is the new grammar

Cllive Thompson has a nice article in Wired about the need to learn statistics, pity it’s too short, and bit one-sided (heavy snow doesn’t contradict AGW, but a heat wave, that proves AGW!).

Tip from Kaiser Fung at Numbers Rule Your World, whose blog post is a better article.

Update (3 May).  Discussion at Joanne Jacobs lead me to this article about the data-driven life.
