I just got home and haven't read it, but it sure looks spiffy. I think you've got a hit here Greg. :bow:
It's all up to the writers :smile:

The quizz about Einstein is bugged as of now. At least for the last 2 questions.
Normally when you're wrong you get to see the correct answer with a green check sign and your wrong answer with a red cross. I only get to see a red cross for the last 2 questions. I know the correct answer because it's written below.
But here's another bug, for the last question: 12. According to himself, what was Einstien’s “biggest blunder”. I ticked the correct answer (Creation of Lambda) and I get a red cross as if it was wrong. However at the bottom I get, as correct answer: Creation of Lambda or Cosmological Constant.

If I sign up, and write one, can I at least use an English accent?
Or, in the least, a Scottish one.
I've heard the chickens in 'Chicken Run' spoke in a Scottish accent.

Based upon that, I've decided that one can't very well, write a chicken based electrical analogy without a proper Scottish accent.

So is there any place where people can request for blogs on certain topics, and writers can choose from the popular requests?

As I am fairly new to this forum, can I ask the question what the value/purpose of these "Insight" articles is? In particular, are any of the people who might benefit from these articles actually reading them?

To educate, inform, and entertain

In particular, are any of the people who might benefit from these articles actually reading them?

Of course, we've gotten very good feedback so far

Can you tell them to slow down.
My skull is full, and every time I read a new one, excess brain oozes out of my ears. :oldruck:

Seriously though, they are great!

BTW, who's idea was this?

Haven't your mom ever told you to close your head or your brain will ooze out?

Seriously though, they are great!

It came to Greg in a dream. :)

Before sitting down to read PF I wear this to keep my brains inside my head

The idea is nothing if we didn't have an amazing group of authors!

I agree, PF Insights is off to an incredible start. We have 6 more articles in the pipeline to be published and many drafts being developed at this very moment. It's amazing! Our community is truly full of interesting people! We've been attracting a lot of attention on social media lately.

For some reason I have the link twice.

Edit: Weird, refreshing the page solved the bug.


<--- about there
