Checking Work

Of course it was Sou’s mistake. She has now corrected her error. The question now is whether Andy Skuce will correct the mistake he made in his tweet when he failed to check Sou’s work.

UPDATE: Here’s a link to an archived view of Sou’s original post:
Thanks for saving it, Brandon.

UPDATE 2:  Thanks ultimately to Sou’s mistake, I had a lot of traffic here at my blog today (Sunday), and a good number of book sales.  Of course, Anthony Watts’s link to this reblog in tweet today also helped. So I bought a lovely steak for dinner.  Hadn’t had one for a while. Thanks, Sou.  Thanks, Anthony.  Cheers!


It’s important to check your work. It helps prevent you from publishing stupid mistakes. It’s also important to check other people’s work. That helps prevent you from believing people’s stupid mistakes. Sadly, in the internet age of near-instantaneous communication, people often do neither.
