Interlude: Loss of Confidence Project

I saw a blurb on a Loss of Confidence Project on Twitter. I like the idea. Those of us in the psychological sciences conduct research that perhaps at the time we thought was well-done from a theoretical and/or methodological standpoint, but realize later that we made some sort of honest mistake. If we can get to a point where we can take ownership for our mistakes, and foster a culture that is forgiving and accepting of what is probably very common, we'll be better off for it. I'll certainly follow this project with great interest.
