Research-y Bits

Wikipedia is basically as accurate as Britannica on a selection of science articles, according to Nature. Wikipedia has slightly more errors, but only slightly. And of course they are more up-to-date, though Nature does not cover that.

Interesting-looking research on different types of wikipedia contributors. [Via sj.]


Spent four hours in meetings today; rest of the day I read rails docs, pretty much. Interesting stuff- should be able to build the (very simple) site I need pretty quickly, if rails is how I choose to do it. Should know by the end of the day tomorrow.


Got several applications actually done last night. More tonight, hopefully, and then a nice stiff drink…
