The keys to real science are data and experimentation. I’ve spent nearly five years conducting research into the why, how, and what of contagious ideas. Perhaps my favorite data set is my giant MySQL table of 100 million retweets. Irving Kirsch, a researcher at the University of Connecticut backed me up in a recent experiment.
