How Technology is Hijacking Your Mind — from a Former Insider
We need our smartphones, notifications screens and web browsers to be exoskeletons for our minds and interpersonal relationships that put our values, not our impulses, first. People’s time is valuable. And we should protect it with the same rigor as privacy and other digital rights.

Data Science and the Art of Persuasion
"In a question on Kaggle’s 2017 survey of data scientists, to which more than 7,000 people responded, four of the top seven “barriers faced at work” were related to last-mile issues, not technical ones: “lack of management/financial support,” “lack of clear questions to answer,” “results not used by decision makers,” and “explaining data science to others.” Those results are consistent with what the data scientist Hugo Bowne-Anderson found interviewing 35 data scientists for his podcast; as he wrote in a 2018 article, “The vast majority of my guests tell [me] that the key skills for data scientists are….the abilities to learn on the fly and to communicate well in order to answer business questions, explaining complex results to nontechnical stakeholders.”"

Identifies some failure modes:
• Statistician's curse
• Factory and Foreman
• Convenient Truth

Plan for building out a team:
• Define talents (there are some suggestions including project management, cleaning data, analysis, modeling, domain expertise, design, storytelling)
• Hire to create a portfolio
• Graduated challenge and exposure rather than pigeon holing
• Picking your projects

The 3-step guide to de-radicalizing jihadists
It is one thing to observe that de-radicalization can occur, and quite another to understand how it came about. Simply put, de-radicalization depends on three Ns: need, narrative and network.

The first step toward de-radicalization involves recognizing the needs of jihadists, which shape their motives, beliefs and reality. Often we only see what we want to see and believe what we want to believe. Valid arguments, however strong, are can be utterly unpersuasive if they run counter to our needs.

The trap of chronic Lyme – LymeScience
It’s not that every single person will fall for every single con but that there is a con out there for all of us. There’s a con out there that you will fall for because it will be designed for your particular psyche and the way that you see the world.

No matter how observant you are, no matter how skeptical you are, I don’t think there’s a single person out there who is not a potential victim.

And Now the Storm-Blast Came - Chapter 1 - AMarguerite - Persuasion - Jane Austen [Archive of Our Own]
Anne Elliot stays in Lyme to nurse Louisa, and starts collecting fossils. While looking for these curios on the beaches of Lyme Regis, she and Captain Wentworth get caught in a thunderstorm, search for shelter, and pine a lot. Coleridge's 'Rime of the Ancient Mariner' gets quoted frequently, though only Anne and Benwick ever recognize the allusions.

Why Being an Asshole Can Be a Valuable Life Skill | Mark Manson
But this work was actually very important because our understanding of human behavior is bounded by words. Therefore, to get a full sample of pre-defined human behavior, you have to go through the whole damn dictionary.

Create a new rule for yourself: if there’s something uncomfortable that you believe is important to say, just say it. Don’t think about it. Just trust that in the long run, more times than not, you’ll be happy that you said it. In fact, chances are, in the long run, other people will be glad you said it.

The first few times you’re an asshole in this way, it’ll feel terrifying. But once you get some of that positive social feedback, you’ll start feeling more comfortable with it. And it will come more naturally. You’ll be an asshole. But you’ll be their asshole.

Because here’s the funny thing you’ll notice once you start to hone your asshole skills: other people will come up to you privately, once everyone else has left the room, or maybe corner you in a remote hallway somewhere, and, while looking over their shoulders to make sure no one else can hear, they’ll say, “Hey, thank you for saying that. My god, that really needed to be said. I’m so glad you did.”

This will begin to happen all the time. In fact, it’s shocking how much non-assholes rely on ethical assholes to go to bat for them.
