Where are the smart captchas? Tired yet of inscrutable combinations of letters? There are easier ways to do this that prove that a user is human. Here's a simple one at http://andculture.com/connect.html: a simple lock/unlock slider, elegantly done, and eminently usable.

Well worth reading - and a scary outlook for our teenage kids....
Andrew McLaughlin originally shared:
 
Characteristically excellent +Henry Blodget post with the 4 (actually 5) charts that explain why the OWS protests are resonating. In brief:


1. Unemployment is at the highest level since the Great Depression (with the exception of a brief blip in the early 1980s).
2. At the same time, corporate profits are at an all-time high, both in absolute dollars and as a share of the economy.

3. Wages as a percent of the economy are at an all-time low.

4. Income and wealth inequality in the US economy is near an all-time high: The owners of the country's assets (capital) are winning, everyone else (labor) is losing.
Strong data; vast implications. Especially notable, to me: The spike in corporate profits and CEO pay and the relative drop in wage income was the result of deliberate policy choices made in 2001, not random market forces. The 1990s Clinton-era boom was good for corporate profits and CEO pay and also for wages, while the 2000s Bush-era recovery was great for corporate profits and CEO pay, but terrible for wages.

Interesting (academic) doc on valuation of Zynga - suggests that Zynga's valuation would be justified only for an "extreme growth" scenario. http://arxiv.org/PS_cache/arxiv/pdf/1112/1112.6024v1.pdf

Must watch: Eli Pariser's TED talk on the "filter bubble" created by over-personalization of search engines and social networks. Really well done, and very relevant.

Good view on the value (or lack thereof) of "star" CEO appointments. The article cites research that " the more dazzling the outside recruit, the worse he performs in his new role." - that there's a negative correlation between prior success/fat comp premiums/performance in new role. HP's Meg Whitman fits the problematic pattern here.
