←--1: . While the word nugget has the advantange of being easy to remember, it does not adequately describe the two key aspects of the concept: 1) a piece of information that will remain in its original form, 2) a piece of information that has distinguished authors. There are words that more aptly describe these features: e.g. claim, statement. The word statement is more self-explanatory and is therefore suggested instead of nugget.

←--3: . Nugget, despite being short, simple and easy to remember, has not gained much support from the current active/semi-active open assessment community. Perhaps another name, e.g. claim, could do better in describing this entity. --Mikko Pohjola 07:30, 3 February 2009 (EET) (type: truth; paradigms: science: defence)
