Fact Checking

Recently I drew your attention to an article in WIRED in August 2008 that declared the end of science as we know it HERE. It was clearly hubris and I have just found out that this was an understatement. See this interesting article from Peter Norvig who not only explains how he had been misquoted in the WIRED article, but also in passing pays homage to the legendary 'fact checking' of the New Yorker magazine.
