ACS Meeting in Denver: Who Went to Bergman’s Talk?
I’m here in Denver for the 2,745,456th national meeting of the American Chemical Society. Denver is a great city: very compact and walkable, especially without any snow.
Anyway, I’m told that the Sames–Sezen story was a major focus of Bob Bergman‘s HIST 005 presentation titled “Irreproducibility in the scientific literature: How often do scientists tell the whole truth and nothing but the truth?” I’m also told that he and Ron Breslow had an exchange in the question-and-answer period.
Does anyone know what, exactly, was discussed?
Oh, and I’m giving a talk tomorrow at 3:30 in CCC 108. If you are one of the three people who stays at national meetings past Wednesday, please come!
