Machine learning blog

At this machine learning blog, they scanned in a number of old papers, including:

"Why isn't everyone a Bayesian?" by Efron B, American Statistician 1986. Examines reasons why not everybody was a Bayesian, as of 1986, with scorching reply from Lindley.
"Axioms of Maximum Entropy" by Skilling, MaxEnt 1988 proceedings. Sets up four practically motivated axioms, and uses them to derive maximum entropy as the unique method for picking a single probability distribution from the set of valid probability distributions.

The other posts are worth a look too.
