Assorted links this instant October 21, 2007

This site is kinda like a dream come true. Why ?

LibraryThing is an online service to help people catalog their books easily. You can access your catalog from anywhere—even on your mobile phone. Because everyone catalogs together, LibraryThing also connects people with the same books, comes up with suggestions for what to read next, and so forth.

So maintain a list of books you have – if the collection gets too big you still can track it via searching and stuff. And then all that about connecting to people with similar book interests etc.


Reading articles like this I wonder what is the whole point of linking to scores to studies and wasting your time ( or as a corollary, some of you doing the same and wasting my time 😀 )

We all make mistakes and, if you believe medical scholar John Ioannidis, scientists make more than their fair share. By his calculations, most published research findings are wrong.

Dr. Ioannidis is an epidemiologist who studies research methods at the University of Ioannina School of Medicine in Greece and Tufts University in Medford, Mass. In a series of influential analytical reports, he has documented how, in thousands of peer-reviewed research papers published every year, there may be so much less than meets the eye.

Unless of course, among the 90% incorrect findings is the one above. 😉


And then this one – some really cool T-shirts. One of my favorites – here.


On whether Harry Potter as a phenomenon can/will be replicated. One view here and also connects to posts with differing views.

Librarything = good. If your collection gets “too big”, you can pay a pretty minimal fee ($5? $10, I forget) to remove the size limits. I did that, and it’s worth it. Too many books to track on my own!

Just checked that one….yeh $10 is a throw away price 🙂
