Many of you know that I regularly post and host the Pique the Geek series here and elsewhere on Sunday evenings. One of my rules is to prepare myself for questions and corrections (both of which I relish) after posting. Some of you may not know that I NEVER look up anything after posting, unless specifically requested to do so, and when I specifically say that I have in the comments. There is a reason for that.
When I write my scientific blogs, I prepare for them. For each minute that you read them, often more than an hour of research has gone into them. But I can never know everything, and the comments are usually the most interesting and often the most illuminating part of my posts. I would not have it any other way!
