This morning I went to see Christian Robert talk at QUT about the use of simulation as a tool in statistics (contains the slides from the talk). Overall it was quite an interesting talk although it was aimed at a less statistical audience than it was received by (mostly PhD students from Kerrie Mengersen’s BRAG group). I livetweeted the talk using the hashtags #xian and #amsi and have tried scraping my tweets using the tool described here. So I’ve now got a handy little archive of the tweets that I made. Turns out #xian is a poor choice of hashtag as it’s a region in China.
Edit: I’ve replaced the scraped tweets with a Storify thingo instead.
