Confidence Bows Before The Seeker
A potent 10-minute truth bomb about the roots of confidence. He also treads eerily close to my own suspicions about "anchor diversity" and its role in creativity.

To Make Sense of the Present, Brains May Predict the Future
Intro: A controversial theory suggests that perception, motor control, memory and other brain functions all depend on comparisons between ongoing actual experiences and the brain’s modeled expectations.

Gurwinder's summary tweet: "Human perception is like predictive text, filling in the unknown with what is already known, reshaping the foreign into the familiar, sacrificing fidelity for intelligibility."

[MY NOTE: This seems extremely relevant to my argument about school homogenizing the anchors we have access to in our minds and thus limiting creativity.]

Serious Play
"Successful innovation demands more than a good strategic plan; it requires creative improvisation. Much of the "serious play" that leads to breakthrough innovations is increasingly linked to experiments with models, prototypes, and simulations. As digital technology makes prototyping more cost-effective, serious play will soon lie at the heart of all innovation strategies, influencing how businesses define themselves and their markets.

Author Michael Schrage is one of today's most widely recognized experts on the relationship between technology and work. In Serious Play, Schrage argues that the real value in building models comes less from the help they offer with troubleshooting and problem solving than from the insights they reveal about the organization itself."

[MY NOTE: Koch gave this one the thumbs up on Twitter, saying it has aged surprisingly well since its 1999 release. From the description above, I feel confident in my ability to pull useful anchors and anecdotes from it for my work.]

Driven by Compression Progress: A Simple Principle Explains Essential Aspects of Subjective Beauty, Novelty, Surprise, Interestingness, Attention, Curiosity, Creativity, Art, Science, Music, Jokes
"I argue that data becomes temporarily interesting by itself to some self-improving, but computationally limited, subjective observer once he learns to predict or compress the data in a better way, thus making it subjectively simpler and more beautiful. Curiosity is the desire to create or discover more non-random, non-arbitrary, regular data that is novel and surprising not in the traditional sense of Boltzmann and Shannon but in the sense that it allows for compression progress because its regularity was not yet known. This drive maximizes interestingness, the first derivative of subjective beauty or compressibility, that is, the steepness of the learning curve. It motivates exploring infants, pure mathematicians, composers, artists, dancers, comedians, yourself, and (since 1990) artificial systems."

[MY NOTES: What a gem from 2008 that has not been appreciated or understood anywhere near enough in the decade since. Highly relevant to my work!]

Tubular Plastic Anchors - Fastener Mart
#10 or #12 should work with 3 inch deck screws to mount 2by4 2x4 on wall.
anchor should be 2 inches long.
1.5 inch thick 2by4.
2 inch hole in concrete.
That leaves 0.5 inch leeway for the screw to dig into the 2by4.
