# Welcome to Dan’s brain

The contents of my head are not useful if they stay in there, so I have copy-pasted the main good bits onto the internet, right here.

Here you can find everything on the site, making no distinction between half-finished notebooks and ephemeral, complete blog posts.

Themes: whatever shiny thing distracted me into taking notes about it, including but not limited to,

- interesting problems in statistical inference,
- tedious technicalities in solving said interesting problems,
- survival tips, broadly construed, for wherever I am living, and
- philosophy of each of the above things.

Not what you are looking for? You might be after information about me, or my other projects.

Finding it hard to keep track of? I am experimenting with an email subscription. Beta test it by mashing this button:

This front page is slow to load right now. Sorry about that; I’m working on it.
