Spreading Wild Rumors

One effect of Nature’s embargo policy is to encourage the spread of wild rumors. It’s almost part of the mission statement of this blog to participate in this, so I feel I must link to this.

Update: Nature unequivocally denies that they will be publishing a CDMS paper on the 18th. The collaboration does plan to reveal the results of their latest run on that date. The wild rumor that they have seen WIMPS and will reveal all on the 18th remains in force…

Update: There’s now a statement on the CDMS web-site, saying that there will be two talks on December 17, and plans to submit a paper to the arXiv before the talks.

    Probably a good link for the future would be the point spread on Jester’s two proposed options and whatever others fit some reasonable Bayesian cutoff.

    X-mass is early and in the multi-GeV range.

    Which of course does not rule out the possibility that they will be publishing a CDMS paper on the 19th DUN DUN DUNNNN

    Does releasing a pre-print before their talk suggest that their results aren’t monumental?
