I’ve got an entry in The Open Laboratory: The Best Science Writing on Blogs 2008
Posted by apgaylard on January 4, 2009
Just a short bit of boasting. I’ve had an entry selected for, “The Open Laboratory: The Best Science Writing on Blogs 2008”. I immodestly submitted a three pieces (this, this and this) for consideration. One has scraped in (note that it appears last on the list!):
It’s an exploration of the role of anomalies in science seen through the lens of Thomas Kuhn‘s much-misrepresented philosophy. In retrospect I really wish that I’d called it “resistance is useful“! It will need some tidying up (and sharpening up) before it goes into print; but still I’m happy to have been chosen.
My thanks go to all the authors of the entertaining ‘Memory of Water’ issue of Homeopathy, and every CAM advocate who has ever quoted Kuhn at me. Thank you for prompting me to check things out for myself.
At the risk of sounding like Gwyneth Paltrow accepting an Oscar I’d really like to thank Ben Goldacre for getting me interested in the whole memory of water thing and the few kind readers of this blog who have helped me keep my motivation up.
