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 #43

Monday 12 June 2017

EDITORIAL:

 Yet another week and another edition of Whewell’s Gazette the weekly #histSTM links list bring all of the histories of science, technology and medicine that came to our attention in the Internet over the last seven days.

On the whole I exercise very little editorial quality control over the articles that are linked to here in Whewell’s Gazette. If I did, being the finicky perfectionist that I tend to be then the list would probably have about seven entries every week. Instead I glance at the articles and as long as they are not overtly crap they get included, leaving it up to the individual readers to decide what the articles are worth to them.

This week however I stumbled across an article that is, in my opinion, not only so bad that I wouldn’t include it but I am going to complain about it here in the editorial. The offending piece is on a website called information is beautiful and entitled Mavericks & Heretics: Ideas rejected, later proven correct. What at first glance seems relatively harmless turns out at closer examination to be a #histSTM disaster.

As the title states we have a list of #histSTM innovators whose new and original ideas were supposedly rejected and their creators discriminated against. All well and good but the lists turns out to be a horrible collection of half-truths, myths and outright lies. I had originally intended to write a full-length blog post about it but then realised that there is so much wrong with it that I would need to write a book to correct it all.

This brings us to what I see as the worst aspect of the whole affair. This website/blog post is actually an advert for a full-length book entitled information is beautiful published by a major publisher Harper Collins. I have to ask; don’t publishers employ fact checkers anymore? If they did this piece of rubbish would have landed it in the rubbish bin where it belongs and not in a bookstore

Geographicus Rare & Antique Maps posted a nice biography of the original engraver Thomas Illman, repeated in part here: Thomas Illman (died 1858) attended Trinity College, Oxford, where he received a degree in theology but never pursued it as a career, turning instead to the art of engraving. His first professional work was illustrating Thomas Carlyle’s Confessions of an English Opium Eater.
