Our new column in the Daily Beast

Kaiser Fung and I have a new weekly column for the Daily Beast. After much deliberation, we gave it the title Statbusters (the runner-up choice was Dirty Data; my personal preference was Statboyz in the Hood, but, hey, who ever listens to me on anything?).

The column will appear every Saturday, and Kaiser and I are planning to alternate. Should be fun. The first column will go online this Saturday.

P.S. It didn’t go online until Sunday. It’s here.

    Statbusters like Mythbusters and Ghostbusters? …
    Statboyz in the Hood was better by two orders of magnitude.

  2. I hope that you’ll both write the columns in a way that they can be later collected as a book. Really looking forward to this!

    I hope it’s not going to be all about data viz nazi critiques

  4. Kaiser says:

    Statsboyz was one of those should win but won’t win (Oscar) predictions.
    I also like the dark humor from whoever suggested A Mean Column.

  5. Kaiser says:

    Anon: perhaps you would be kind enough to point to a critique that you don’t consider as “nazi”. And no, the column is not about data viz though it is one possible topic as it is part of stats.
