What's better than a fact? A fact disproving common but inaccurate "knowledge". You might need to enlarge that image to benefit from it.  One of my favorite: Vikings' didn't wear horned helms...they were created in the 19th century by a costume designer for a Wagner opera.

"Psychology's real replication problem: our Methods sections" http://feedly.com/e/97h6y929
This idea that there is somehow a requirement to involve authors in efforts to replicate their work. This is nonsense; once you have published some work then it is fair game for replication, failure to replicate, criticism, critique and discussion. In other words, we're all allowed to science ...

Live conversation with three major Drupal contributors: Lee Rowlands, Tim Plunket, and Daniel Wehner about what's going on in Drupal 8 and how you will benefit from the all the new stuff. Join us for a live Hangout on Air (you'll be able to watch it on the event page) and bring your questions.

Since we're attempting to have a live conversation between 2 people in Germany, one in San Francisco, and one in Australia, the timing may or may not be good for you. 

The good news is that there will be a video of the whole thing on YouTube for those of you unable to join in live.

Update: Here's how Daniel Wehner describes himself and Drupal: "Student by day, Drupal guy by night. After being mentored by dmitri as a student as part of the Google Highly Open Participation Program I got sucked into the idea of open source and contributing. One day I realised that Earl Miles suffers in productivity as he had to answer so many support questions, so I jumped in, got involved in Views, and finally together with Jess (xjm), Damian (DamZ) and Tim (tim.plunkett) got it into core. These days my interests are also WSCCI initiative."

Update 2: Here's what Lee Rowlands has been up to:
"- Been working with Drupal for 5 years
- Role of Senior Drupal Developer with PreviousNext for 18 months, prior to that self employed.
- Core Maintainer of Forum, Custom Block and Comment modules.
- Major achievements for D8 include tour, custom block (fieldable, revisionable, translatable blocks) and comments on any entity.
- Long term goal for Drupal is to replace simpletest with something else."

"It’s not hard to mine science history for theories and proofs that were beautiful and wrong, or complicated and right." < Damn right!
Scientists prize elegant theories, but a taste for simplicity is a treacherous guide. And it doesn’t even look good

"In any era, racism is typically supported by comparing two groups that are socially unequal and with clear physical differences. But both these sorts of comparisons are moving targets."
...
"Wade’s arguments aren’t necessarily wrong, just because they look like various erroneous arguments from decades past involving drunken Irishmen, crafty Jews, hot-blooded Spaniards, lazy Africans, and the like."

< Yes, that's precisely why they're wrong! 
The paradox of racism is that at any given moment, the racism of the day seems reasonable and very possibly true, but the racism of the past always seems so ridiculous. I’ve been thinking about this recently after reading the new book A Troublesome Inheritance: Genes, Race, and Human History...

So I own a boat now. Not sure yet what to call her but I'm thinking Phoneme would be a lovely name. Any suggestions?
