For your chance to win, either tweet or add a comment to this post, saying who developed the Still Face paradigm and when it was first published.

If you post your answer as a comment to this blog post, make sure you leave a way for us to contact you.

At the end of the week, we’ll pick at random one correct answer from all entries on Twitter and one correct answer from the comments section of this blog post*.

Good luck!
