Whatever the day brings, make the decision to enjoy the day. You don’t have to enjoy each moment, but you can choose to enjoy the day.
The love of knowledge is a kind of madness.
― C.S. Lewis, Out of the Silent Planet
Please. Please don’t allow inflight phone calls. Please.
When you work an insane number of hours, you’re going to get fatigued—for your neurons can only handle so much effort until they get worn out.
What’s happening here? Psychologists call it decision fatigue: the phenomenon where the more decisions you make, the worse at deciding you get. It’s part of the reason why judges give harsher rulings late in the day and hiring managers prefer the people they interview in the morning. Additionally, if you’re tired, you’re more likely to make unethical decisions—which suck and are to be avoided.
Just going to put this here for now.
This is kind of amazing.
By default, these messages pass to any other Tin Can enabled phone. Every phone with Tin Can will work as a relay point. But users don’t have view every message: They can set up the app so to view just the messages from selected followers. If a follower’s message can’t reach you by jumping from phone to phone, you won’t receive it.
In a world where we’ve become accustomed to the ability to send messages around the globe within seconds, this might not sound like a particularly useful tool. After all, with Tin Can, the only way your message is getting from Austin to London is if you walk by another Tin Can user who then gets on a plane bound for that destination.
After millions of years of remembering what matters, is technology changing the way memory works?
I sure hope so, because my memory has always sucked, so any change would probably be an improvement.
