@SanaBau now on Twitter + a beautiful demonstration of how to apply critical reasoning

Everyone knows the old cliché that a picture is worth a thousand words. This simple and elegant visual guide to critical thinking seems to be superior than the equivalent verbal explanation in the quality (more so than quantity) of what it communicates. (Via Guardian/BioBlog).

The appropriate use of critical reasoning in decisions under uncertainty is no small obsession of mine, and I probably couldn’t have made a clearer argument than presented in the above figure in substantially more than 1000 words.

Also, I’ve finally been persuaded to join the Twitter community on recommendations of QAEco colleagues, including this post by my supervisor @mickresearch. This argument by Happy Science, also via Mick’s blog had me at “Interested in science communication and public engagement? You NEED to be on Twitter”.
