"Do you know someone who needs hours alone every day? Who loves quiet conversations about feelings or ideas, and can give a dynamite presentation to a big audience, but seems awkward in groups and maladroit at small talk? Who has to be dragged to parties and then needs the rest of the day to recuperate? Who growls or scowls or grunts or winces when accosted with pleasantries by people who are just trying to be nice?"

I guess this confirms my geekhood (or something)...
 
Help Save the Programmers!

A research published and reshared somewhere on Google+ states that because of concentration problems i.e. ADD - programmers are lately more and more unable to grasp simple everyday things such as the movies. The condition makes sitting still and focusing on just one darn thing for 90 minutes straight - pretty much impossible!

If you are one of the poor souls afflicted by the syndrome - lucky for you there is now Movies {as code} project (http://bit.ly/zejjs5), an online therapeutic experience where Ben Howdle and his group of fellow samaritans translate movies into code so that - yes, even the most multitasking-impaired individuals are finally able to enjoy and understand these simple pleasures of life.

A reader points me to this chart - I am not able to independently verify the data source. If the data are to be believed, our robot brethren experienced a significant die-off in 2010, but then overcam...

Hmmmm... Would I lose the tool as often as I lose guitar picks?
 
Amazing Idea :)

An excellent article on the shortcomings of modern science, particularly in the biological domain.
Dead-end experiments. Useless drugs. Unneeded surgery. The truth is, our scientific stories about causation are shadowed by all sorts of mental shortcuts.
