E = mc2 Centenary Survey - If I could teach the world one thing about science
- A survey was conducted of over 250 renowned scientists, science
communicators, and educators - including 11 Nobel laureates - asking
what they would teach the world about science and why.
It's an interesting site. I thought Professor Sir Antony R Hoare, senior
researcher at Microsoft Corporation pointed out something particularly
pertinent to web analytics:
I should teach the world that scientists start by trying very hard to
disprove what they hope is true. When they fail to disprove what they
hope is true, then they have a good reason for believing it, and they
can even convince others of its truth. A scientist always acknowledges
the possibility of error, and is less likely to be mistaken than one who
always claims to be right.
