Natural history of Ashkenazi I.Q.

Seeing as how the Overclocking thread has generated good comments and hasn't degenerated, I'll link to the discussion thread here, so it stays on the front page....

Update: A critique of the paper. I don't have time to read it, though a quick skim indicates to me that Greg would have some very big bones to pick with the historical contentions.

Update from J.M: Picked up by Haaretz (just an unoriginal blurb). A better article at JTA (thanks Diana). Also 600 comments at Slashdot if that's your cup of tea.

Update: Long piece in The Forward.

Update: Jim Hu's response. The "Update" kind of made me laugh. Jim follows up again. One thing...it seems clear that the perception that there was founder effect is probably the biggest technical hurdle to acceptance. Neil Risch is a big ass mofo (rep wise).

Important update: I've put the links to the posts and comments related to this topic at the top right. Until the buzz dies down they'll be there.
