Reshared post from Brad Snowder

As I've discussed with +Jon Lawhead before, the neutrino results are a good opportunity to take stock of the way science handles its PR outfit. I was worried for a bit that we'd just chalk the whole thing up to normal science without thinking critically about how the announcement went down, so I'm glad to see them take responsibility for their mistakes,
