Five thirty-eight provides a brand new definition of the p-value

The Five-Thirty Eight blog provides a brand new definition of the p-value:

"A p-value is simply the probability of getting a result at least as extreme as the one you saw if your hypothesis is false."

I thought this blog was run by Nate Silver, a statistician?
