The post is very interesting in itself, but what's more interesting to me is an example of the migration of the typical academic journal based conversation to a hybrid journal/blog conversation.

Pre-internet, the content of this blog post would of normally taken the form of a journal "response" article in which one academic politely lambastes another for making a mistake, and then 6 months later we'd hear the "reply" article in which the academic says "we weren't really wrong but here's some corrections".

Now we have a faster feedback loop. It's fun to see and I hope the academy can find a way to make this more common.

Also the inclusion of a jupyter notebook makes it significantly easier for me as a programmer to dig in a little deeper into the topic.
