I love the Internet – having just read Freakonomics, I can now make comments on the authors’ blog. Specifically on a post about something I was trying to dig out anyway – the link between nutrition and behaviour. You can find their post about it here.

  1. Jon,
    Social sciences and IT are full of examples of vague links, which are in fact a combination of loose statistical correlations (you can probably correlate anything with anything, such as crime rates and given names -but maybe because poor people give certain names and they’re more likely to offend if they live in a high crime area?) and fertile imagination.
    Do you think Linux coders eat more tuna than Visual Basic ones?
