Things I did in April:
published the results of my 14 day sleep deprivation experiment: The Effects on Cognition of Sleeping 4 Hours per Night for 12-14 Days: a Pre-Registered Self-Experiment
published 2020 Q1 links (underappreciated!)
learned a ton more biology and am now trying to figure out what’s going on in bioinformatics
e.g. how the hell do we align the sequencing data if we only sequenced somewhere between 91% and 96% of the human genome!??!?!!! If our data-generating processes are right, this would mean that we are unable to align at least 4-9% of all data we have, right?
published an article about Why We Sleep with Andrew Gelman
Also, we now have the official response to my post from UC Berkeley thanks to Yngve Hoiseth who asked them to investigate: "bar omitted from the graph on the book did not alter the findings in an appreciable way ... other errors Guzey cites are similarly minor. Walker transparently refers to this errors in his blog"
Gelman: “If the data didn’t matter, then why did you include them in your damn book in the first place? If the removal of the bar from the graph didn’t matter, then why did you remove the damn bar?”
unrelated tweet: “why even go to the institution? given enough time, the offender may even conduct their own internal investigation”
Have a great May!
