Sooooo I was settling in to work on today's S4 post, but I got sidetracked by one of the geekier workplace debates I've had in a while. First, there was a heated debate about the proper pronunciation of Likert (a rating scale used in survey research): Is it LICK-ert or LIKE-ert? We then moved on to Chronbach's alpha (a measure of reliability in statistical research): Is the "bach" pronounced like "baby got" or like "Johann Sebastian"? And is hierarchical regression superior to stepwise regression analysis? And why are people still renting porn from places like Family Video? Don't they know about the Internet?
I think you can all see why today's post may be delayed. Accept my apologies, and tell me in the comments about the nerdiest yell-fests you've engaged in at home or work.
