here's the link to the google interview: bubblesort is at around 22:50. A lot of these questions mentioned here have been asked at the google interview or were addressed by obama in his speech. I think the candidates@google interviews show several of these guys obama, edwards, mccain, clinton, paul talking about issues of interest to the /. audience

+ - Scoring Systems for credibility of cited sources?

While I've seen guides (like this one from cornell) or this wikipedia article, I haven't seen any standardized scoring systems that apply a numerical score to source credibility. I'm thinking of something as simple as +5 for a current, double-blind study published in a peer reviewed journal, funded by non-partisan sources to -5 for an out of date, non peer reviewed article from a partisan source. If there aren't any "simple" systems out there, is this something we should create to help with evaluation of content on the net and in our society?"

Don't hit the keys so hard, it hurts.
