Two quick science thoughts

Paul Ingraham ARCHIVEDMicroblog posts are archived and rarely updated. In contrast, most long-form articles on PainScience.com are updated regularly over the years.

These brief points were both popular tweets over the winter (here and here, if you’d like to retweet them yourself). What makes a tweet take off is still mostly a (fascinating) mystery to me, but for sure “virtue signalling” in a major factor. Interesting.

This is the MICROBLOG: small posts about interesting stuff that comes up while I’m updating & upgrading dozens of featured articles on PainScience.com. Follow along on Twitter, Facebook, or RSS. Sorry, no email subscription option at this time, but it’s in the works.
