dancing and science



Here’s a direct quote from the post:

…Besides gathering online responses, Dr. Bohannon also administered the quiz to eight live audiences in North America and Europe. For some reason — perhaps because they were more focused on the task — the live audiences were generally more accurate overall than the online audiences, although there were exceptions: a live audience at Harvard was less accurate than the online readers of Science, and did only about half as well as a live audience at the University of Vermont. I will leave it to others to explain Vermont’s superiority to Harvard, and whether it has more to do with dance or with science.
