The first sentence, *Model, for statisticians, has two meanings.* made me reflect challenges that I had at the beginning of my graduate studies in statistics, eventually not study (generalized) linear models (GLM), and dislike adopting kernel density estimation (KDE) in astrophysics, although statistically/mathematically GLM and KDE are beautiful themselves. After getting used to statistics, it seems I forgot the time of being a cocoon. Convincing the other what “model” means and its suitability has been the most long lasting obstacle during collaboration.
Regarding MaxEnt, although not knowing what it is, the recent [arxiv/stat.MT:0709.4079] discussed it. I was unable to comment it. Someday, would you introduce what MaxEnt is? (I guess the acronym came from Maximum Entropy).
