Free Thinking--Probability: What was the chance that I would write about probability?
You might be in need of a paper idea for your research and you are desperate. Well if you came to this site in desperate need of something worthwhile, well then was is the probability that there is anything useful on this page?
To determine the probability of successfully finding useful information in any of my blogs, you could use a Bayesian Network. It might be useful to have a tool that performs Bayesian Network analysis. You are in luck, there is an old one on the Microsoft Research from 2001, so it might work, it might not. Up to you to determine if you want to even get it to work.

Let me know if you got it to work, I am going to play with it over the next few days as a little archeological investigation.
