Here’s me, Simon Singh, Phil Campbell from Nature, and Fiona Godlee from the BMJ giving evidence on libel reform in parliament yesterday. It’s all interesting, if you like that kind of thing, our session starts at 17:30 and I do a bit more shouting in the second half of it. I’m afraid that for some reason the UK parliament website uses some ridiculous proprietary Microsoft plugin called “Silverlight” for their video rather than standard pre-installed or open source options.
Now, off topic, but related to this genre of post: I’ve got to decide what to do with my blogs. You might not have noticed, but I’ve been posting lots of stuff (in spurts of procrastination) at:
It’s a mixture of interesting EBM nuggets, “told you so” follow-ups, scribbled thoughts on media stories, silly pictures of daytrips, interesting papers I’ve just read with a three sentence thought on them, and so on. Normally I’d post this video over there, but now I’m not so sure about the split.
The stuff over there is often very low threshold, genuinely scribbled, and I had a plan that badscience.net should remain just the columns (which I’ve been slack about updating the last few weeks) and polished work, to avoid drowning those out in other posts, but maybe you’d prefer it all in one place? Or weekly pointers? Some of it is blogging in the way that some other people do it, as in, a paragraph from someone else’s post, a paragraph on what I think about it, and a link to their post. Anyway, do let me know what I should post here, and what elsewhere, and if you’re happier with it all being a mush in one place.
