23. Dalton says:

No Regression

Oh, fear predictions of men are failing
These are methods we don’t know
Linear regression now is spreading
Galton declared it would be so

I’m going where there’s no regression
To a better land that’s free from error
I’ll leave this world of linear least squares
My home’s in heaven, I’m going there

In this dark hour, midnight nearing
The GLM time will come
Non-Guassian errors will hurl terror
And sweep lost millions to their doom

I’m going where there’s no regression
To a better land that’s free from error
I’ll leave this world of linear least squares
My home’s in heaven, I’m going there

I’m going where there’s no regression
To a better land that’s free from error
I’ll leave this world of linear least squares
My home’s in heaven, I’m going there

24. Anon says:

There is still a chance to provide input on the title of the book! I thought it was nearly published!

By the way, what is the status of the book?

• Andrew says:

Anon:

Book is done; we’re just fixing typos, cleaning up the index, and adding a few homework problems. Realistically I think the title is set, but I thought it would be fun to consider alternatives. The physical book should be out in a few months, or however long it takes Cambridge University Press to do that sort of thing.

We should not be talking about “the title,” but instead think of each copy’s title as a draw from a distribution of titles, and try to describe that distribution.

I hope Dan Simpson working on a mixtape for this book.

• Martha (Smith) says:

At this point, we have quite a list of possible titles — but describing the distribution of titles — that’s another story. (I suppose we could do it by vote?)
