  1. “I understand your point that the author is the greatest authority on their own work, but we require secondary sources," were the exact words of the Wikipedia administrator, according to Roth.
  2. "There are no angles from which the sculpture’s innocence is obvious." via Becca Tabasky
  3. Nice article on A/B testing.
  4. This review was bad but should have been worse IMHO. '“Why would anyone go to such lengths to get hold of a memoir whose essential purpose was to entertain?” (Oh, perhaps because people don’t find it very entertaining to be depicted as charlatans.) Such faux naïveté is unbecoming in someone as savvy as Lyons is, and makes him seem, in the end, an unreliable narrator of his own story.'
  5. Pando also published a hatchetjob on Dan Lyon! What goes around comes around?
  6. Hubspot's founders response to Dan Lyon's book.
  7. Dan Lyon's employer/publisher pans his book! Sounds real bad.

  8. I totally though I discovered this protocol myself!
  9. I pulled this down from ProQuest. https://search.proquest.com/globalnews/docview/1918845555/2876135FA9C243EEPQ/1?accountid=14784
  10. I didn't really know Bob although we overlapped a little bit on the FSF board when he was a member (a weird role). This was a nice writeup of an important person in the history of free software.

  11. "The rescuers required no special equipment, and were able to extricate the student from the sculpture by hand, creating a surreal, oversize delivery room scene, with the artwork giving birth to a full-grown (though perhaps a little immature) man."

  13. "The name "Pendle Hill" combines the words for hill from three different languages (as does Bredon Hill in Worcestershire) In the 13th century it was called Pennul or Penhul, apparently from the Cumbric pen and Old English hyll, both meaning "hill". The modern English "hill" was appended later, after the original meaning of Pendle had become opaque."
  14. This is where we'll be camping for the eclipse.
  15. Well, that's provocative.
  16. Yikes. I remember this happening but didn't see this writeup until now.
  17. "What does this all mean? In terms of temperature and dilution, your style of shaking and the ice you use probably doesn’t matter. The length of time you shake probably doesn’t matter. All of these are probably vitally important to the texture and look of the drink. Eben put it best when he said that these results should set you free to develop your own style of shaking because you no longer need to worry about time and temperature."
  18. Consultancy run by James Vasile and Karl Fogel.
  19. Seems like caffeine itself is basically not bad for kids beyond obvious stuff like keeping them from sleeping, suppressing appetite, coming in drinks with tons of sugar, etc.
  20. "The fate of physical books may seem tenuous, but at least 1,000 copies of 100 different books are set to be printed roughly a century from now, in the year 2114. Indeed, the trees that will be used to make the printing paper have already been planted."
  21. "FreeOTP is a two-factor authentication application for systems utilizing one-time password protocols. Tokens can be added easily by scanning a QR code."
  22. AMA quotes

  23. "The correlations were much lower between Mendeley readers and citation counts for conference papers than for journal articles in Building & Construction Engineering and Industrial and Manufacturing Engineering. Hence, there seem to be disciplinary differences in the usefulness of Mendeley readership counts as impact indicators for conference papers, even between fields for which conferences are important."
  24. Saw this paper at CHI. Pretty awesome although not entire sure what this is good for.

  26. The now iconic Bluetooth logo is actually a combination—officially known as a bind rune—of King Bluetooth's initials in Scandinavian runes: ᚼ and ᛒ. When you join the two to make a bind rune and drop it on a blue background, you get the familiar Bluetooth logo.
  27. Wow.
