Since I wrote that blogpost I have found there are a lot of people out there who want to talk about retractions, the integrity of the scientific literature and the incentives researchers face around issues to do with scientific honesty.
Here a few of the things that have resulted from that original blogpost:
- David Duvenaud (who spotted the original bug in my code) created a presentation and a paper on the pitfalls of creating code for analysis, and sanity checks the analyst can use to avoid the same thing happening to them
- The story was picked up by Times Higher Education
- I was invited to tell my story at a symposium at the World Conference on Research Integrity 2017. The symposium was organised by Elizabeth Moylan, who with co-authors wrote a proposal for a new system of post-publication article alterations.
- After speaking at the symposium, the story of my retracted paper was covered by the founders of Retraction Watch in STAT and then by Science
