Paul, really brilliantly written article. While you may feel like this experiment wasn’t a success, I think it ultimately has to be viewed that way, at least from our perspective. You didn’t prove the hypothesis you set out to prove, but that’s what an experiment is for.
I have found the offline posts sometimes mundane, sometimes very insightful, but this post about the experiment is just perfect. Beautifully expressed and wonderfully done. Thanks, Paul.
