This is interesting to see. There's always been fashion, and always will be, but I wonder if men have had as many demands on their bodies? Also, it would be interesting to see how the view on masculinity/femininity changed over the years.

Men have likely had various demands on their bodies in various times. And as usual the most disruptive event ever in the history of fashion is the French revolution.

It's interesting to take our new habits and put them in an old context, but at the same time this video leads my thoughts to "digital detox", a concept that reeks of digital dualism. The thought that the digital realm "isn't as real" as the meat world works well in the movie The Matrix, but in our world it's just an excuse for people to be reactionary luddites.

Having said that, I like the approach that this miniseries has taken (there's also a part 1), because it's more inviting to reflection than the other movies from the same source.

This is very fascinating: that computers need very little data to know us better than anyone but close friends and family.

I tried this and it accurately predicted my gender, sexual orientation, religious views, political orientation and, I would like to believe, intelligence. The Big 5 is hard to say, but I think it did a fair profile there too. It failed in the age (31 instead of 37) and relationship departments.

It's a marketing goldmine and an integrity nightmare.
Remember the time you liked a beer pong video on Facebook and thought nothing more of it? That may have said more about you than your friends and family

Wow. Google's stories are amazing. All you have to do is take photos, back them up to Google+ and it'll build stuff like this automagically. I'm loving it!

I highly recommend this week's episode of This American Life. The segment where Lindy West talks to a human that trolled her in a very mean and painful way is so interesting. The conflicting feelings I felt, Lindy really made a good job of conveying her ambiguity.

I agree! One of the best episodes of This American Life I've heard.

Very interesting and relevant post from +Thomas Baekdal about how Facebook is artificially inflating their video views to say that they can compete with Youtube as a video platform (they can't, obviously, but there's always someone who buys the PR-gimmick).

However, there's one thing I think Thomas got wrong: how much Facebook have to tweak the filtering algorithm in order to get videos to pop up more in the filtered feed by a factor of 10. If the output is that videos take up 30% more of the feed, the tweak from Facebook is far lower, because when we see more videos in our feeds and share these, we (as users) amplify a small tweak to become much more visible. The equivalent would be that we see ten rows of domino bricks falling, and think that Facebook pushed them - but they only pushed one row that ended up triggering a chain reaction.

If the users hated video content, the effect would not be as prominent. 
We have all heard about the amazing growth of Facebook video. Only a month after they started autoplaying videos, Facebook video grew by 50%. And last month, Facebook video outgrew YouTube in terms of what type of videos brands are posting on their Facebook pages.

I just sent in my review of the #lumia1520  for the #lumiapledge . It's not flattering. All in all, it offers a very poor user experience, caused by the fact that Microsoft has to promote all their divisions, even if those divisions offer a poor user experience (Internet Explorer, Bing, Microsoft Office). 

There are enough scammers in the Windows Phone store to make me wary of what I download. Most apps don't have official versions, but third party ones that leave out important functionality. Example: Kindle doesn't support looking up words. Sharing a link from Internet Explorer (which by itself is a deal breaker) to Twitter requires copying the link manually, closing the browser, opening the Twitter app and manually composing the tweet. 

There are a bunch "nice to haves" in the Windows Phone, but none of them are reasons to switch from Android or iOS. In fact, I wouldn't even recommend it to Windows Phone enthusiasts because of the size: apart from the actual Windows Phone UI, the apps don't take advantage of the screen size. I feel like I'm using a phone for the visually impaired. 

The camera is awesome though. This photo is taken with it (and isn't edited in any way). But should you get one? No.

Thursday night, I was flying from New York to Cleveland to spend the weekend with my boyfriend. I had used Super Shuttle a couple weeks ago in Houston, and it worked well so I decided to make a reservation with them from my office at 2 Park Avenue to La Guardia. The flight was at 8:40; Super Shuttle suggested a pick up time at 5:10. "That's okay" I thought to myself, "I'll get to the airport with plenty of time, and I can spend the wait working". At 5:05 pm I'm outside the building, waiting for the car. When the clock strikes 5:33 and no car is in sight, I call Super Shuttle to find out what's going on. The woman answering says "it's fifteen minutes away" Realizing that the car will be at least 25 minutes late, I decide that the $2.70 tip I paid in advance when paying for the shuttle would reward bad service. I ask for a refund, not because of the money - because of the principle. The Super Shuttle representative doesn't really want to do this. I have to explain to her several times that I don't want to cancel my pick-up and get a full refund, and she keeps implying that there's no other way to get my tip back. Eventually she acknowledges that they can do that. I make a mental note never to pay a tip in advance again. At 5:58 I get an automatic call from Super Shuttle, saying my car is five minutes away. Eleven minutes later, at 6:09 I get another call saying my car has arrived. I don't see any car - and I've been standing in the same spot for over one hour. I think to myself that the driver probably sent the message a couple minutes ahead so I surely would be there. He was probably stressed as he was running 45 minutes late. By this time, I had realized that I could check the location of my car through Super Shuttle's web site, so I did that; the car was 0.07 miles away. Being European and not entirely comfortable with the Imperial system I started making a conversion in my head when I see a blue Super Shuttle pull out from 4 Park Avenue - a block over - and speed by me. The numbers on the shuttle say 818, which is the number of my car. By this time, I'm starting to feel stressed. Realizing that the driver had stopped at the wrong address, decided I wasn't there and left, I call Super Shuttle again. Now the real circus begins: The first person I talk to puts me on hold and patches me through to dispatch. Dispatch tells me "The driver was there, he even went into the lobby and you weren't there". I try explaining to her that I wasn't there because he was at the wrong address, and that I had seen him pull out and speed past me but she isn't listening and just repeats that I was a no-show. After a while she just cuts me off, and I hear pause music. She essentially hung up on me, and patched me through to reservations. The woman there understood my problem but "could not help me". All she could do was to make a new reservation (for which I would be charged again, including a $2 fee for making reservations over the phone) but there were no guarantees I would make it to the airport on time. If I wanted anything else, I had to talk to dispatch. I gave up and asked her to transfer me. She did, and my call was conveniently dropped. If you have ever tried getting a cab in Midtown Manhattan around 6 pm, you know how hard it could be. I ended up calling Super Shuttle back in hope that they could fix it while walking and keeping an eye out for cabs. The guy I talked to then was the first friendly person, but all he could do is put in a complaint. In the end, I ended up being fortunate enough to get a taxicab that drove me to La Guardia. I got a refund the day after from Super Shuttle on my original fee of $19, with a call to my voicemail stating as much. There was no apology, and I have yet to get one from Super Shuttle. I'm not holding my breath, and I will never use this company ever again.
