I can’t recommend this enough.
@zeynep takes apart the idea of “absence of evidence is evidence of absence”, and explains: well, sometimes it really is!
This seems to me to be the more pragmatic question.https://zeynep.substack.com/p/pandemic-theater-the-anniversary …
Also: when does correlation imply causation, and when does the plural of anecdote equal data? This requires pragmatic judgment — a difficult thing to do.
@zeynep’s takes because they are measured and reasoned and not tailored for “clicks” or “likes.” She has understood the zeitgeist from the beginning.
Thx for sharing.
