Whewell’s Gazette: Year 3, Vol. #30

Whewell’s Gazette

Your weekly digest of all the best of

Internet history of science, technology and medicine

Editor in Chief: The Ghost of William Whewell

Cornelis Bloemaert

Year 3, Volume #30

Monday 13 March 2017

EDITORIAL:

As the river flows onward to the sea so the editorial year flows onward and it is time once again for a new edition of Whewell’s Gazette the weekly #histSTM links list bringing its readers all the histories of science, technology and medicine that came our way over the last seven days.

March is Women’s History Month and 8 March was International Women’s Day. Whewell’s Gazette has always actively supported efforts to raise awareness of the role that women have played in #histSTM, so we have collected all the #histSTM contributions to Women’s History Month and to the International Women’s Day that we could find and have put them together as our feature this week.

This edition of Whewell’s Gazette is dedicated to all the women who have contributed to #histSTM over the centuries and to all the historians who are working to make those contributions known to a wider public.

Quotes of the week:

“Some competition for Sir Cloudesley Shovell in the ridiculous Admiral names stakes: Sir Reginald Plunkett-Ernle-Erle-Drax” – Dr Steven Gray (@Sjgray86)

“When did philosophers (start) stop writing introductory poems to their treatises?” – Dov (@drnelk)

“Today’s curse: May the children & grandchildren of those who vote for grammar schools nationally & locally fail their 11+” – Rebekah Higgitt (@beckyfh)

“I went to a grammar school and the system worked for me” is the educational equivalent of “my grandmother smoked and lived till 90” – Wu Ming (@twlldun)

“If grammar schools are so good, how come nobody who attended one can differentiate between personal experience and statistical evidence?” – Wu Ming (@twlldun)

Jonathan Swift

“Here, have a new word on me, “synchronicently”” – Jafe (@JFDerry)

“How do you speak such good English?” “I dunno 200 years of colonialism and Eurocentric education, how do you know so little history?” Siri Srinivas (@pjux)

“The bloody neighbours have gone out and left John Cage’s 4’33 on full blast again” – Moose Allain (@MooseAllain)

“I had an idea for a shop that specialised in alcoves, nooks and crannies

But people dismissed it as niche marketing” – Peter Broks (@peterbroks)

Princeton physicist John Archibald Wheeler explains general relativity: “Matter tells space how to curve. Space tells matter how to move.” h/t @XavierLSuarez1

One hears of niche sexual predilections, but geometry must be one of the strangest. Still, Thomas Hobbes appears to have been unfazed by it ­ h/t @KateMorant

One of our favourite general history books is the legendary 1066 and All That: A Memorable History of England, comprising all the parts you can remember, including 103 Good Things, 5 Bad Kings and 2 Genuine Dates by W.C. Sellar and R.J. Yeatman, so we were very happy when James Sumner drew our attention to the wonderful 8086 and All That.
