  • @SuperMugatu Good example is the book Sapiens selling 10 million copies. Drove historians/anthropologists crazy. "He didn't say anything new!" Sure, but he said it well.Link to Tweet
  • @vboykis Did you ever read Sapiens? The way Harrari framed "dataism" as the next kind of zeitgeist/era makes me think we should see an increase in this type of thinking: a kind of agnosticism/atheism/skepticism towards dataism. Or, not to get too meta, more context for when dataism helps.Link to Tweet
  • Examples Sapiens - 10 yr of research Immortal Life of Henrietta Lacks - 10 yr of interviews Complications by Gawande - 10 yr of medicineLink to Tweet
