Yea this whole dating site thing doesn't work. Tinder works because it is 'simple' in that essentially it is moving all the decision making on peripheral attributes to you the dater unlike the more heavy-handed ones like okcupid, match, or eharmony.

What could actually have real result would be some AI that understands your behavioral tendencies as well as other people's behavioral tendencies, understands your and theirs thought-to-action barrier, and then finds either complementary, opposing, and/or similarities in those realms.

That really would provide a better matching system. Asking people who they want to be with is like asking a monkey what it would like to cook you for dinner.
 
So, come Valentine’s Day, remember to remember the grim reality: Since the rise of online dating in the early 2000s, research by sociologists, most notably a large-scale 2012 study published by the Association for Psychological Science, has consistently found that matching algorithms, no matter how sophisticated, just do not work. Indeed, the authors of that study wrote, “no compelling evidence supports matching sites’ claims that mathematical algorithms work—that they foster romantic outcomes that are superior to those fostered by other means of pairing partners.” The feel-good principles on which these search-methods are grounded—similarity of values, complementarity of sexual preference—are, sorry to be a killjoy, actually rather poor predictors of subjectively rated romantic success. “[T]hese sites,” the authors continue, “are in a poor position to know how the two partners will grow and mature over time, what life circumstances they will confront and coping responses they will exhibit in the future, and how the dynamics of their interaction will ultimately promote or undermine romantic attraction and long-term relationship well-being.” When you finally get that note-perfect message from a total cutie—who, OMG, is also a 99 percent match!?—in other words, don’t get too excited.
More than a decade into OkCupid's existence, sociologists are finding that its widely touted algorithm doesn’t actually help us find romance.

"This proposal makes physical reality platonic in nature," -- yes, yes it does. I love it!!!
(Phys.org)—Although in theory it may seem possible to divide time up into infinitely tiny intervals, the smallest physically meaningful interval of time is widely considered to be the Planck time, which is approximately 10-43 seconds. This ultimate limit means that it is not possible for two events to be separated by a time smaller than this.

That is cool! Another big step on bringing people out of the closet into the public. Woohoo!
India's first transgender band 6 Pack has made a smashing debut with its cover version of Pharrell Williams' "Happy".

The precursor to Swimmer choreographed by Yuri Possokhov for the #SFBallet  last season. John Cheever has a rather interesting accent. The softness of word pronunciation makes it feel almost like drinking a heavy glass of air.

+Punit Soni really does lay it all out. The simple rules that are hard to implement in life. That's the truth.
 
Recently I remember speaking to a group of future leaders from some of India’s foremost companies and someone asked a question, “What defines a great leader”. I think I gave a wholly unsatisfactory answer at that time centered around enabling people. And its just a role that others decided to foist on a person. I saw a lot of confusion in people’s eyes.

I can see how in certain contexts (like a traditional family owned business), folks can confuse leadership with dictatorship, with a sense of kingdom or glory. But in a pure tech setup, the company is a group of equals all of who have come together to further a common goal. How does a leader operate in that context?
