New Domain, New Design, New Direction

If you are regularly reading this blog, you might have noticed a few things. First, I migrated the blog from blogger to my own domain and I am now using wordpress. I also changed the design a bit (might still be changed a bit in the future).

Again if you regularly read this blog you might have noticed that my plots are all rather inconsistent when it comes to formatting. I am working on a generic style I want to use from now on, which is hopefully a bit distinctive for my blog. I also would like to add more tutorial-like entries, such that you can redo the analysis yourself. I will also start uploading my code to github. This should be seen as a try to become a little more “professional”, yet still be easy to digest.

The next (mildly) exciting posts are currently being written and I hope you stay tuned and keep reading my blog.

mildly scientific – too dubious to publish too interesting to conceal

In the course of my PhD, i gathered a lot of data that i thought might be relevant for my thesis at some point. Or just because the data was kind of interesting and funny. But as it turned out, none of the data was/is useful for my research since it is just too dubious to publish any serious paper containing an analysis of that data.

But thank god for the internet, where nothing is too dubious to be at least mildly interesting for a bored random surfer on a bright summer day. So i decided to not leave my data to rot, but instead work on my “data science” skills and publish my mildly scientific analyses in this blog.
