For The Sake of Higher Eddication

I meant to do this a couple of days ago, but because of all the hilarity and snow and skidding about on the roads and falling on my ass, it totally slipped my mind. Now of course I should save it, as tomorrow is the LAST day of the madness and it would mean a guaranteed completion however I have a finished object to show off tomorrow so, barring any further Front Stairs Ballet I'm pretty much in like Flynn.

So hey, there's this guy who's doing some research thingie and he uses great big words like "Contra blog-triumphal models of memetic bootstrapping ..." so really, you know it's all academic and important. (i secretly think he made that up).

So what he wants people to do is link to that there post, explain his experiment (he's trying to get you to do his research so he can do a talk about it and doesn't have to do any work, which proves that he's really a graduate student) and then go over there and ping Technorati, which sounds sort of like it's something rude but it isn't.

So go ahead. Do it. Iffen you don't, god will kill a kitten. Or at least shove it down the front stairs.

Okay, Okay. I'll do it. We can't have any kittens killed or being shoved!
Alas, I have no blog. But if I did, I'd quote Girl Genius for the title: "It's a beautiful day - for Science!"
I have to delurk to say this is the best description I've seen of this yet.
(I mean, it's important n'all. But this is still the best.)
I also thought those words were made up! ;)
***my secret code starts with gyn...shudder, shudder***
I did the linky thing. Yours is the second post in as many days to talk about it in the list of blogs I read, so I thought I'd join the cool people.

Speaking of: sorry about your ass. I hope you were at least graceful.
Just another way for us to prove that knitters can and will eventually take over the planet.
No way no how. Unless he offers to write my ethics paper that was due 3 weeks ago, then I might reconsider my stance. This grad student ain't helping no other grad student on some candy-ass research about memes - the definition of which is misused in blogsphere in the first frigging place. Not that I'm bitter or anything.
