The following from Macbeth conveys the sense in which this blog is about ‘nothing of significance’.
Life’s but a walking shadow, a poor player
That struts and frets his hour upon the stage
And then is heard no more. It is a tale
Told by an idiot, full of sound and fury

A funny correcto from Nate Silver’s The Signal and the Noise (not a well edited book):
“At NASA, I finally realized that the definition of rocket science is using relatively simple psychics to solve complex problems,” Rood told me.
where, I would say, ‘psychics’ was substituted for some typo of 'physics’.

At long last, Google has added spreadsheet editing features to its Google Drive mobile applications. The updated software is available for both Android and iOS devices. You can’t get too fancy in your spreadsheets just yet, but this is a step in the right direction.
