The first thing to understand is that if you are still alive five minutes after a small nuclear weapon detonates, you are already very likely to survive. [Jason Lefkowitz]
Does it seem plausible that education serves (in whole or part) as a signal of ability rather than simply a means to enhance productivity? (…) Many MIT students will be hired by consulting firms that have no use for any of these skills. Why do these consulting firms recruit at MIT, not at Hampshire College, which produces many students with no engineering or computer science skills (let alone, knowledge of signaling models)? Why did you choose MIT over your state university that probably costs one-third as much? [David Autor/MIT | PDF]

Among the most arcane networks elaborated in stereohell are the complex paths traversed by members and guests around the S-One facilities. We studied the formation of patterns and schemes using a novel analysis technique. We estimated the population of S-One at different times and all spatial positions at the S-One facilities. We derived the response of each character to “information” concentrations (see depiction below) by looking at correlations between “information” concentrations and changes in speed and direction for each character. Speed was found to adjust to “information” concentrations, while direction was largely unaffected by the same “information” concentrations.
