You're right Tony. There are some aspects of that infographic that ought to be addressed, not least the veracity of the contents. And as for the sources cited, yep, with you all the way. But peer-reviewed journals? Hmm, not so sure.

Hey Ian,

Thanks for the feedback and the consideration about the dodgy infographic. Interesting point you make about the idea of peer review and who actually would do this. I have been planning and building for a while some ideas around the porcess of validating people online and building a social reputation structure based on other people. This has got me thinking even more - thanks for the time and effort.


Tony (for the Crew)
