This is the bi-weekly visible open thread. There are hidden threads every few days here. Post about anything you want, ask random questions, whatever. Also:
1. Thanks to Brendan Long for doing some work to make the blog appear better on cell phones. Cell phone users, please let me know whether it’s actually better now.
2. I would like to do a new SSC Survey soon. If you have any ideas for interesting questions, let me know. I’m not going to include very many reader-requested questions, but if someone comes up with a really good one I find really interesting it might make it in.
3. I will be at this meetup in New York City on December 18. If anyone else wants to come, I’ll see you there. ADDED: Also, we are still looking for a location, so if anyone has a big house in New York City and wants to help us, we can figure out some way to make it worth it for you. Please let me know or email firstname.lastname@example.org
