“Predictably Irrational: The Hidden Forces That Shape Our Decisions” by Dan Ariely is one of the best books I’ve read for a long time. Here he is talking about it at TED.
While on the subject of decision making, Joachim de Posada shares a landmark experiment on delayed gratification — and how it can predict future success. With fascinating video of children trying their hardest not to eat the marshmallow. I must read more about this.
I’m also interested in what’s happening as the worlds of TV and the internet collide. So this one by Peter Hirshberg also caught my attention.
