I'll ignore your questions then, Pat.    (01)

For those interested in the original thread I recommend a recent
enjoyable article by Wired editor Chris Anderson. It hints at the
broader issues from that thread eight months ago, such as our ability
to abstract "truth" into theory, and the utility of drawing
conclusions directly from data:    (02)

WIRED MAGAZINE: 16.07    (03)

The End of Theory    (04)

As I said in the Funknet thread where this article came up, I don't
think this indicates an "End of Theory" so much as "the birth of the
theory that there can be lots more theories buried in a set of data
than we've ever imagined we needed to look for before."
(http://listserv.linguistlist.org/cgi-bin/wa?A2=ind0807&L=funknet&D=1&F=&S=&P=1928)    (06)

But I do believe it indicates the way forward.    (07)
