Pro-Innovation Bias

Aug. 28, 2017 4:40 am

Coupled with automation bias this one is a real doozy.

https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Pro-innovation_bias

Pro-innovation bias means that scientists equate new with sexy. Even when those new methods are themselves poorly understood, and there are little data to support their adoption into the mainstream. This is true whether we are talking about a new piece of technology, a new piece of kit, a new analytical method, a new imaging device, a new piece of software, a new algorithm.

Anything new.

Neophilia drives poorly understood methods into mainstream science.

BestThinking.com to Shut Down Permanently on December 31, 2017

If you want to save a copy of your content, you must do so before the website shuts down on December 31, 2017. We will NOT be able to provide any assistance after the website shuts down. We are available at support@thinkermedia.com only until the shutdown to provide more information and assistance.

It was a noble 10-year experiment, but it turns out that the writers with the best content are the least adept at the tech required to publish under our model, which in hindsight, makes perfect sense. If you are dedicating your life to becoming an expert in your specialty, you don’t have a lot of time left for figuring out publishing tech.

It hasn't helped that we have entered an age of unprecedented polarization and antagonism which doesn't foster demand for a website dedicated to the respectful engagement of diverse views.

Thank you, everyone!
