Oh wow...her!

Today's Crikey reveals that the Quadrant hoaxer was Katherine Wilson. Margaret Simons details how the identity was revealed - the very simple fact of a link on the haox diary to a legitimate post from the hoaxer.

I have to find myself somewhat unsurprised, given the commentary I gave yesterday on the hoax and its attack on relying on "science". I chose to use the example of the science of the health effects of Electromagnetic Energy. It just so happens that Katherine Wilson and I exchanged words on that very topic in Crikey in November 2007, which I blogged about.

Probably I too could have joined the hunt to out the hoaxer - but who really cares?
