An experiment into science blogging

Posted on 30 July 2011 by John Cook

I've been developing a social experiment with the University of Western Australia into science blogging. If you could help out with the experiment (and don't mind being a lab rat), your assistance would be greatly appreciated. Please read the blog post How we know we're causing global warming in a single graphic and the comments below then click the 'Enter Our Survey' button at the bottom of the page which will ask questions about the content of the blog post.

Anyone who contributed to the original comment thread will not be able to enter the survey. I've also turned comments off until the experiment is over and not all the original comments are showing - they will be restored to their original state at the end of the experiment. Thanks to all for helping with the experiment!

Click here to read the post and enter the survey.

UPDATE 6 Aug: The experiment has been completed. Many thanks to all who filled out the survey. The blog post now shows all submitted comments in a single thread.

Comments 1 to 5:

  1. It seems to me that the questions regarding comments weren't meaningful, since I couldn't see any comments when I read the post.

  2. You don't have a scriptblocker running by any chance, lukeness? Because I counted 12 comments! I figure you'd have to at least allow SkepticalScience itself and perhaps googleapis, judging from a quick check of my own NoScript list for this site.

  3. Is it kosher to draw attention to this, BTW? Or should it just be left to those who'd find it in the ordinary course of things?

  4. Interesting... it actually still says "There are no comments posted yet" just above where it says comments are temporarily disabled... And I can see the comments on this post, just not the survey post.

  5. Is this the "experiment" the conspiracy types are currently going on about?

    Never let the truth get in the way of a good story :-)
