The Perfect TED Talk That Never Happened

From Coffee Break.

This is an adaptation of Brian Nosek’s Paper: Scientific Utopia: II.

This is also a footnote to my last video: the evolution of bad science and better giraffes, find it here:

To see my interview with Brian Nosek, go here:


Martin Fowler – Ships III
Anthony Barilla – The man who shot liberty valence 8
Anthony Barilla – Totally Rude Variations 8

Scientific Utopia: II. Restructuring incentives and practices to promote truth over publishability

A final note: I did change certain facts within Dr. Nosek’s paper in order to make it more relevant to today, e.g. TED. This was done with Dr. Nosek’s permission and all changes were taken in the "hypothetical success" section, so no factual parts of this story are different.
