Go back a few years. How were engineering and scientific works of note created back then? Yes, with lots of references and a bibliography. Acknowledging all the sources we built upon to enable the readers to verify for themselves. Supporting progress by allowing society to weed out the implausible and the plagiarized and accept the rest as best current truth. Wikipedia does the same with its notability guideline.
Kirstin asked, I hope everyone enjoyed the solar eclipse yesterday!
So, I've been musing on what the next popular fields of work will be. The most recent wave we have seen rise is that of the Computer Programmer. What field of work do you think or hope is next? And what will disappear, as did thousands of carriage-makers with the rise of the automobile?
Well, yes, I enjoyed the eclipse. The clouds broke just enough to let it shine through for a minute or so, allowing the lens to catch dramatic lighting, unfiltered. The purple tint was not in the original picture. Unretouched photo set on flickr.
