Really enjoyed this piece on happiness (has some good links, too) - http://jtaby.com/2012/02/02/a-moment-of-clarity.html

"On average, you have 78 years total to live. Spending 2 years doing something you don’t enjoy is a full 3.4% of your life. What are you getting back for that investment? Money?"

The $537 million redesign of the arch grounds is so disappointing. I'm still naive enough to think that over a half billion dollars is a lot of money and should buy some pretty spectacular stuff. The plan couldn't be much more humdrum... $30-40 million to raise LKS blvd 2.5 feet so that it floods less often. um, yippee.

Marquise Knox at the Old Webster Jazz & Blues Festival. Truly great. Did a version of Johnny B Good that put all others to shame.

I'm so tired of the megapixel race in digital cameras, its preventing any real advancement in quality. Very few people seem to realize that increasing megapixels for Point & Shoot digitals cameras with tiny little sensors (about the size of the nail of your pinky) actually decreases the light gathered by those pixels... This article states it nicely:

"See, throwing more megapixels at the digital imaging problem is akin to bumping up the processor speed on a motherboard with a slow bus and small amounts of RAM... The number of megapixels in a camera's image sensor is just one in a number of aspects that truly define how well a camera works.

In an image sensor, larger pixels mean better light-gathering capability. This translates to better low-light performance, better color accuracy, and in some cases better dynamic range. Sensors commonly come in a few different sizes: Full frame (24 x 36mm), APS-C (17 x 25mm), Four-thirds (13.5 x 18mm), and even smaller sensors on compact point-and-shoot models. As manufacturers cram more pixels on a given sensor, those pixels get smaller and smaller.

Typically, this reduction in individual pixel size on a sensor reduces its ability to gather light, reducing its sensitivity. Now, manufacturers have devised a number of technologies to try and combat this problem, but jamming more and more pixels on a sensor quickly leads to diminishing returns in terms of image quality."

In addition to that, a typical photo is not in a studio, so once you add in motion during capture and bad lighting to begin with, it's even that much more pointless. But I didn't know about the light gathering issue until now - very interesting...

I feel like so many Republicans are constantly lashing out against a system that doesn't exist. It's almost like they're being fed lies by some insidious propaganda machine that builds narratives around isolated cases in a way that makes people believe them to be pervasive realities.

It's really not healthy for the republic, quite honestly. Policy debate really just dont happen anymore, it's just a big political soap opera. If you dont mind raving, i think the blog thedailyhowler.com has a very smart take on the news industry. Hes a liberal, but his analysis is really quite good. But again, be prepared for raving, but if you endure it for a month, you will have a sort of revelation about his point. (At least i did, maybe its old hat to you.)

I've seen and read a lot of analysis about the jobs/labor market in the US and the competing forces at work, but this particular opinion piece presented a viewpoint I'd not heard before.

Not sure exactly what to make of it, but I think I'll be noodling on this for a while, so wanted to share.

Another very relevant article on this topic( though focused on the now rather than the future) http://www.theatlantic.com/business/archive/2011/07/the-greater-recession-the-real-reason-americans-feel-so-squeezed/242704/
