Today was the sixth day (but my first day) of the Theory Advanced Study Institute summer school at CU Boulder. I gave two 75-minute lectures on data analysis, my first two of five lectures this week. In the first, I tried to boil down data-analysis to a set of over-arching principles. I got 8 principles. Maybe this is the introduction to the book I will never write! In the second lecture I spoke about fitting a model, from a frequentist perspective, but with a focus on the likelihood function. I am loving the interactive audience. See the wiki for a (constantly updating) description of the lectures I am giving.
