Notes on linguistics and cognition
It is fair to point out that I may have mis-used the word scoop. Ben Zimmer had a long lead time with his NYT Magazine article and he spent a great deal of time and effort preparing his article, while I spent a whopping 25 minutes on my post. Blogging software makes going to press easy and fast, and tempting to do so without due diligence. All of us who publish to the global marketplace via the interwebz have an ethical responsibility to consider the impact of our posts.
Do you need to be first at everything?
FYI, I have posted a comment on Liberman's LL post regarding this here.
