It’s some science thingie

November 28, 2006

Acephalous is studying how links propagate across the web, or something.  The deal is, you put a link like the one above on YOUR blog for some reason and he tracks it with a script and writes up a paper that he’s presenting at a convention…  he’ll probably fold some of the data he collects into his dissertation, or into a really bitchin’ paper airplane at least.

Aw, hell, I don’t really know what it’s for, but all the cool kids are doing it.  Next up is jumping off a cliff together, I think.

    Oh, it is an experiment.  Most sociological experiments misstate their true purpose to avoid skewing the results, so you might be right about the true purpose. 

    I don’t envy him crunching the amount of data he’ll end up with and trying to model it for presentation.  Better him than me.
