getting it less wrong, in lots of directions

I like the idea. See Getting It Less Wrong and Science as Story Telling or Storytelling ...

"Describing science as a process of getting "less wrong" is intended to acknowledge not only that there is no claim being made to having "Truth" but, equally importantly, that there is no claim being made to there being any single path along which all stories can be positioned and evaluated, not even all "scientific" stories. There may well be multiple "less wrong" paths from any given point"

There's an illustration missing in Penn's post, and a promise of one from Lusiana and Julia.  I'd like to see them both.
