Nudge, Nudge: Can Software Prod Us Into Being More Civil? - The Atlantic
The closer we get to the presidential election, the more concern gets raised about how divided the country is and how acrimonious our discussions are over fundamental issues. Attack ads aren't the only problem. The comments sections on web pages and blogs are overflowing with bitterness.
