For people who care about this subject, there are a few book references in the article (will have to check those out later).

"Even the most wildly successful projects decrease maternal mortality by a few percent here, add an extra year or two of life expectancy there. This isn’t a criticism of the projects themselves. This is how social policy works, in baby steps and trial-and-error and tweaks, not in game changers. Leave the leaps and bounds to computing power. If a 49-cent deworming treatment really does produce a $30 increase in wages for some of the poorest people on Earth, we are assholes for not spending it... maybe when the next great idea comes along, we should all dream a little smaller."

(Btw, yes Serial is great and you should all listen to it)

It's not often that readers' (or in this case, listeners') comments become big enough to warrant reporting, at least in relatively mainstream media. See also Reuter's recent decision to remove commenting on their own site (http://goo.gl/VX0xwG) because they realized most people comment elsewhere anyway.

Been looking at election material all morning, still undecided about prop A and C, and unsure about prop 45. Thoughts?

Some other observations from reading the official election materials:
* why are the property tax measures explained in terms of cents/$100 of property value? It's hard to relate to those numbers and properties aren't being sold by Benjamin's anymore
* why do the paid arguments contain factual conflicts with the official summaries?

I emailed Google to get an invite for Inbox, as instructed by the bottom of http://gmailblog.blogspot.com/2014/10/an-inbox-that-works-for-you.html?m=1. That's not entirely confidence inspiring. #google #fail #gmail
