Random Copying

The media is starting to pick up on the Bentley et al (2007) E&HB paper on random copying. Mostly it has been press in the UK (and India) but that could change tomorrow. It is kind of ironic that the message of the paper we wrote is now experiencing the "random copy" effect we describe as a function of the media passing the story on to one another. As it increases in popularity in the press, at least for the period of time before another story pops, it will continue to increase in frequency on science news sites. The frequency of the story itself is predicted by the story. Funny. Anyways, these are the media references to date. http://www.inthenews.co.uk/infocus/features/in-focus/changing-fashion-fashionable-$1072208.htm http://www.spiritindia.com/health-care-news-articles-7830.html http://www.livescience.com/humanbiology/070328_fickle_fashion.html http://newswire.ascribe.org/cgi-bin/behold.pl?ascribeid=20070328.094246&time=11%2006%20PDT&year=2007&public=0 http://news.sky.com/skynews/article/0,,30000-1258130,00.html
