This is the best of the best of the stuff I've read in the past month or so. Check it out here, or subscribe!


  • Wikipedia: "Hedonic Treadmill." Basically, humans aren't very good at getting happier.
  • Wikipedia: "The Planning Fallacy." People are also terrible at planning, even when they're primed to be aware of that fact.







  • Juliet Waters/NYTimes: "The Code of Life." A journalist learns a little programming, and discovers that it's not all bad.
  • FastCo: "Digital Cameras are Messing With Your Memory." This is great, but you really need to read to the end - I suspect that the way that many of us deal with digital photography avoids some of the pitfalls.
  • John Dickerson/Slate: "Note to Selfie." Dickerson gives an excellent, and heartfealt, defense of mobile technology and its place in our everyday lives.



Love... your friendly host.
