Language Log: Bogosity

Bogosity is apparently a CMU coinage. I was at CMU in the mid-1980s. The terms "bogosity" and "bogometer" were much in use, but "microLenat" was not current.

As for reference to a gradual student named Reid, I have to wonder whether that person was Brian Reid, the author of Scribe.
