But I’m done looking, and I just want to share what I’ve found so far—and to implore all the outfits that rate earphones and headphones with mics to rate the mics too. It’s a kindness to the people at the other end of every call.
Remember: conversations are two-way, and the person speaking has almost no idea how good they’re sounding to the other person over a mobile phone. So give the mics some weight.
And thanks, Bose. Good product.
*It’s unclear why this hasn’t been a common factor of comparison and consideration previously.
Ben Franklin’s Guide to Spotting Pseudoscience
“In the 20th century, something like mesmerism returned in the form of “therapeutic touch” — a practice that involves no actual touching. Practitioners run their hands through the air, allegedly realigning patients’ energy fields.”
“He discovered something new — what would come to be called the placebo effect. He also discovered the “nocebo” effect — the experience of side effects when people wrongly think they are getting a treatment.”
“The power of suggestion also explains why so many people felt better after bloodletting and other now-discredited mainstream practices of Franklin’s time.”
Gone in a Flash – M.G. Siegler – Mediumhttps://medium.com/@mgsiegler/gone-in-a-flash-1c16a951007a
“This is undoubtedly a big part of what led to Steve Jobs’ famous “Thoughts on Flash” in 2010, in which he swiftly ripped apart the technology (and Adobe), while explaining why Apple wasn’t going to allow it in the iPhone. Performance. Security. Battery life. Touch. Tools.”
“in May, Google brought AlphaGo to China, where it defeated the world’s top-ranked player, Ke Jie of China. Live video coverage of the event was blocked at the last minute in China.”
“As a sort of Sputnik moment for China, the professors said, the event paved the way for a new flow of funds into the discipline.”
Select quotes from a recent post by MG.
“… a fifty-year trend in this country toward less engagement by US citizens in their communities.”
What will be the inflection point where this trend reverses? Could an idea based off Meetup and other social sites enable people to gather around a do the work the community needs?
Community? Call to action. What needs to be done? Define the people impacted positively and who is able to help with skills, talent, time and money. The site could bring people together and help community leaders rally people in and around their communities.
“General Motors and its partner, Lyft, an Uber rival, are about to begin testing a fleet of self-driving cars ferrying passengers short distances in Detroit and other cities. Uber already has similar trials underway in Pittsburgh and has just expanded its tests to San Francisco. Next year, Delphi Automotive expects to have self-driving Audis providing rides to mass transit stations in a section of Singapore.”
*The future is coming.

Found this in the highlights of a Kindle book I was reading.
“An investment in knowledge always pays the best interest.”
Review your highlights from Kindle books at https://kindle.amazon.com/your_highlights
If you highlight too much of a text you will loose the ability to see the early highlights this way. I saved highlights to a personal Evernote file, one per book. That way if the highlights become inaccessable this way I have the early highlights already saved in a file I can review in it’s entirety any time I want.

Thinking of using Drafts to write posts for my blog. There is not a direct way I know of to directly publish that way. There is a way to send to Byword and for that app to publish to my blog. This post will be testing that idea.
