Here come the twits

In brief:
  • 10:11 today's favorite aptronym: W.M. Rand, published (inter alia) in the J. Am. Statistical Association. #
  • 10:13 Twitter's failwhale running silent & deep: RT @Yendi ... the result of a bug and Twitter's attempt to shut it down: #
  • 13:20 editor! Palin said 'Bible' not 'bible'. OTOH, she confuses 10 commandments with Bill of Rights #team1stamendment #
  • 16:47 via @emckean: Aussie notices 99-year-old OED error on 'siphon'; edit war at wikipedia/Siphon kicks off five min later #
  • 17:22 RT @eldang original research is inadmissible... // oh, that's a good point! #

I often use twitter to mention what's happening or linkdump. I LT here for posterity.
