Interesting Scientific Experiment

MIT students released 10 large red balloons today with the goal of testing the spread and accuracy of information on the Internet.

In the study, they will watch the accuracy of balloon spottings via Facebook, where they hope people who sight the balloons will go and report.

Ideally, the Internet will accurately report the location of the balloons in near-real-time, verifying that the Internet is a reasonably reliable place to get information.

On the other hand, people like me might go on there and blatantly lie… I’m not saying, I’m just saying.
