没有互联网的年代,一本杂志可以满足很多年轻人探索世界的求知欲。<p>1975 年,保罗·艾伦拿着一本《大众电子》(Popular Electronics)杂志闯入比尔·盖茨的房间,刊登在杂志封面的 Altair 8800 电脑吸引两人开始编程赚钱,并于同年创办了微软。我们有足够理由认为,这本《大众电子》杂志参与到了改变人类历史的进程中。<p>保罗·艾伦与比尔·盖茨在创办微软之前服务的这家公司名为 MITS(Micro Instrumentation and Telemetry Systems),而他们的一位同事日后也在个人电脑(PC)的历史上留下了浓墨重彩的一笔,他就是 David Hugh Bunnel …

韩春雨:打开僵局的关键,仍然拒绝自证清白

魏文胜,熊敬维,孙育杰,王皓毅,李伟,王晓群,李劲松,杨辉,王立铭,吴强,李大力,黄志伟,谷峰——10月11日,这13位来自全国多所科研院校的生物学家的名字出现在了同一个地方。他们同时发表声明,实名宣布一项5月发表的论文结果,在自己的实验组无法被重复[1]。而早在7月,就有澳大利亚科学家撰写长文,详述了自己对同一项论文结果进行重复的失败经历[2]——那项可重复性问题缠身的论文结果,来自河北科技大学副教授韩春雨的实验室。只带着一个小实验团队,韩春雨做出了发表在顶级期刊上的新技术,这让他一度成为最受追捧的年轻科学家。但后来,因为研究结果的可重复性问题迟迟得不到解决,来自同行与公众的质疑声越来越大。 …
