Polls suggest that this week's scandal hasn't cut deeply into Herman Cain's support, but his upward momentum has been halted and may be difficult to recapture.

But, if Nate Silver reads himself, then who was phone???

Since it's 2:40am and I'm at work, this seemed surprisingly appropriate.
Scientific American MIND for June/July 2006 has a cover story on The Science of Burnout. The article isn’t available online but for anybody in the tech industry it’s worth a read. One item that...

The steps of this cycle are way too familiar, and unfortunately I think if you fall into this once you'll inevitably do it again in the future. All you can do is learn from it when it happens and self-moderate in the future and hope the damage from the 'learning experiences' doesn't do too much lasting damage. Like all strong personality traits it's a double edged sword so learn how make the good parts work for you and try to moderate the less desirable aspects.

Yay kerberos:

One of many unix commands. There's also commands for finger, touch, strip and sleep, so perhaps you can see how the jokes happen.

The headline is silly, but the text of the article is good. We don't select for creativity.

And I will forgive it the title; even Forbes must appease the SEO gods.

You know for a dying state, California's private spaceflight companies sure are beating the hell out of the ones in the other states where it's supposed to be easier to do business because of less oppressive regulation.

California has an incredible reservoir of talent in this area. Southern California was since before WW-II the center for aerospace research in the country. Even California cannot piss that away immediately.

I found this to be an interesting read. It felt truthy to me.

The concluding paragraph: "The world that produced John Kerry and George Bush is indeed giving us our next generation of leaders. The kid who’s loading up on AP courses junior year or editing three campus publications while double-majoring, the kid whom everyone wants at their college or law school but no one wants in their classroom, the kid who doesn’t have a minute to breathe, let alone think, will soon be running a corporation or an institution or a government. She will have many achievements but little experience, great success but no vision. The disadvantage of an elite education is that it’s given us the elite we have, and the elite we’re going to have."

(That said, I think the author vastly understates the educational quality and opportunities that exist at some top institutions. Though I think my list of "top institutions" does not entirely match the traditional definition of "elite".)

I found the results for gender, age and geographical location to be pretty interesting.

The first two minutes of this are worth watching. 1:08-1:14 is outright amazing, 1:29 will make you smile. Oh and the choreography at 1:01 is beautiful.

Oh, and for those of you who like Lady Gaga, she throws a shoe at the stage, so, do you really need to know more?

This is depressing. I'm sick of hearing "cheating only hurts the cheater." Cheating hurts the honest students trying to learn, especially when it is endemic. The higher the rate of cheating in a course (in a modern university, stunningly high) the more honest students are incentivized to become dishonest students... making the problem slowly worse and worse.
Why I will never pursue cheating again. Last Fall, it was my first semester of teaching as a tenured professor. It was also the semester that I realized how pervasive cheating is in our courses. After...

Source of all sadnesses in the world: just a few selfish people can fuck it up for the rest of us. Explains everything from spam to the Tea Party.
