for 2010 or
- 2009-11-04. The Monthly Mean is celebrating its first anniversary
on November 5, 2009. Thank you to my 131 loyal subscribers.
- 2009-10-19. I will be offering a second free statistics webinar (web
seminar), "The first three steps in data entry, with examples in PASW/SPSS" on
Wednesday, November 4, 11am to noon, CDT. I will also hold two paid webinars
on November 11 and November 18 (same time). Go to the
Statistics webinars page for details.
- 2009-09-14. I will be offering a free statistics webinar (web
seminar), "P-values, confidence intervals, and the Bayesian alternative" on
Wednesday, October 14, 10am to noon, CDT. If this free webinar is successful,
I will offer additional webinars for a fee. I've created a
new webpage with details about the free
webinar and will update this page with information about future webinars
- 2009-07-16. Several issues of the Monthly Mean have been slow to
get out. I sent out the February issue on time (February 23), but the March
issue became the March/April issue and was released on April 30. The May issue
became the May/June issue and came out on July 1 (I suppose somewhere on the
other side of the International Date Line, it was still June 30). Maybe I need
to call it the Once-In-A-Blue-Moon Mean instead. Seriously, I do want to send
out a newsletter at least every other month. The July/August issue is just
getting started, but I hope to spend time pulling it together and getting it
out the door in mid-August. Thanks for your patience.
- 2009-01-18. I just released the January 2009 issue of The Monthly
Mean. I had set a self-imposed goal of sending out this newsletter between the
first and the fifth of every month, but my decision to spend all of Christmas
break away from work and my website set my schedule back markedly. I'm hoping
to get back on schedule for the February issue.
- 2009-01-05. I'm switching my bibliography software from
Zotero. Zotero allows me to more easily
capture and store information from the web, but it doesn't yet have the
flexibility and customizability of output the EndNote has. I'm going to see if
I can get by with a simpler format for my bibliographies on this website. With
Zotero, for example, I can't show a link to both the html and pdf versions of
a paper. The transition will take a while, but I'm hoping to update and
centralize my bibliographies soon.
