163. Hi OTOH,
Edited on Fri Aug-19-05 11:15 PM by Melissa G
You got it mostly right.
I am not a Quant but as you know I talk to Quants and they have told me they believe it would be useful and it make sense to me that it would be useful. I like facts. I like holding them up to the light and seeing what they reflect. Certain people see more in numbers than i do but i see a lot in the concepts that those folks interpret. I don't know if we can accurately anticipate in advance what we can see from looking at the data that we don't yet have access to but I am sure it would be interesting and likely very useful one way or another.
Every bit of data we have looked at so far has been worth glancing at though good folks may differ in interpretation of the various weight of worth.
Is this not what most academics spend their life doing?

The question that has been in my mind since the night of the election
is where did the 9 to 11 million votes Bush could not possibly have gotten come from? (I suspect thin air and programming of some sort or another but not real live voters) I believe the release of the raw blurred data could shed light on this. edit sp
