There are now quite a few blog posts on the NIPS experiment, I just wanted to put a place together where I could link to them all. It’s a great set of posts from community mainstays, newcomers and those outside our research fields.
Just as a reminder, Corinna and I were extremely open about the entire review process, with a series of posts about how we engaging the reviewers and processing the data. All that background can be found through a separate post here.
At the time of writing there is also still quite a lot of twitter traffic on the experiment.
