Public education should attend all and not cater to a sub-group of people or push specific ideologies. I think you are being very generous with the “data science”. For me it will be a generation of “correlation is causation” people…I actually pointed on my document “what exactly is data science? ”

The crazy thing is that if we decided to do the CMF framework and apply in kids sports, well we know they wouldn’t dare… but because it is academics… they decided to come with this non-sense. ]]>

The book definitely suffers from a “physics bias” – it’s not a full history of science as much as history of astronomy and physics. But it’s a good read nonetheless (though indeed doesn’t give the full picture)

For example, suppose that there is a complex and hard to verify proof of a famous mathematical conjecture, then one way to check what the mathematical community thinks about it is to see how many people build on this work. I often believe more a statement after I use it or see other people use it.
