Very interesting. It seems like companies are ready to get into people's home lives as well. I think it's a very generous approach but might be a little much.

I'm a couple weeks behind on news, but this story lends a lot of credibility to Obama in my mind. And by credibility, I mean that I strongly agree with his views and approach towards the media.

Very cool article about how survival horror video games toy with your brain. I don't think I have particularly good constitution for these sorts of games and have thus avoided them, but I can imagine how the pieces work together.

Cool stuff in information extraction from your inbox. I'm curious whether they're working with a small set of common emails, or whether they have a much more powerful engine for doing this. Anyone have any thoughts on how this might work?

Kind of cool news about the fate of the Roanoke Colony. Did anyone else talk a lot about Roanoke in junior high US history class?

Very funny, very interesting TED Talk deriving success from happiness instead of happiness from success. What a great way to think about our pursuits in life.

Although I proclaim to care only about cognitive psychology, I've recently been stumbling across a lot of positive psychology. I admit, it's not nearly as fuzzy as I thought it was.

I really enjoyed this article that gets a little into the classification of Chinese dumplings, but is more about the common desire to have "authentic" eating experiences. I've thought about this quite a bit, most recently in my post about appreciation and expertise, but more directly awhile ago on Americanized dim sum.

The article doesn't come to a hugely impactful conclusion, but it's overall a thoughtful piece

Very interesting article by Jonah Lehrer in The New Yorker about various research in brainstorming and creativity that confirms some conventional notions (being physically close is good) and breaks others (turns out criticism is good). The article doesn't have much unity beyond the theme, but it draws on psychological, sociological, and anecdotal evidence to put together a pretty compelling and interesting picture of what's going on.

What a cool article about how people walk in public spaces. There seem to be a lot of interesting angles you can look at this: treat people like particles, treat people as Bayesian learners, treat people as parts of a community who learn unwritten rules, treat people as goal-driven individuals, treat people as part of an algorithm, and more.
