(Form?)[edit]

This is written as if it will forever remain the copied-from-another-source information. That isn't the correct way to do it, is it? Gene Nygaard 20:59, 30 Dec 2004 (UTC)

Wikified and expanded a little. Still needs a rewrite, but at least first impression should be slightly better. --Piotr Konieczny aka Prokonsul Piotrus Talk 19:38, 11 July 2005 (UTC)

White's Law: P or C?[edit]

Why is it P=E*T not C=E*T? See [1] which has E × T = C. C stands for "culture": what is P? -- JimR 10:16, 10 December 2005 (UTC)

I am not sure, but [2] seems to confirm your point, so I'll adjust it accordingly.--Piotr Konieczny aka Prokonsul Piotrus Talk 15:17, 10 December 2005 (UTC)
