    Yeah I was surprised about how you didn’t repudiate the “n=1″ rhetoric before. It’s simply wrong. The number of observations is not equal to the number of people with self-experimentation, since it’s not cross-sectional data. Self-experimentation means a possibly large and growing “n”, all on the most relevant subject – yourself.

    Seth: It’s a subtle thing. Experiments with one subject are called “n = 1″. Yet experiments done in only one lab are not called “n = 1″. Is “n = 1″ derogatory? Or does it just serve to identify a certain kind of experiment? Not obvious.
