Discussions of Math Soc

Math soc discussions happening elsewhere in the blogosphere.

Pam starts a discussion of “controversies” in mathematical sociology at Scatterplot.

Fabio is prompted to write about “Transparency vs. Truth”  For the record, I think Fabio’s reference to “accurate” models, may be a bit misleading for some.  I’m not sure any math models deserve to be called “accurate” ;p  But I guess I lean towards favoring the transparent side of that debate.

And even goes on to call for a sort of open-science collaboration to develop a Schelling model of segregation which considers the influence of topography.  I think its a great idea!
