INDIVIDUAL RISK ATTITUDES: MEASUREMENT, DETERMINANTS, AND BEHAVIORAL CONSEQUENCES - Dohmen - 2011 - Journal of the European Economic Association - Wiley Online Library
"This paper studies risk attitudes using a large representative survey and a complementary experiment conducted with a representative subject pool in subjects' homes. Using a question asking people about their willingness to take risks “in general”, we find that gender, age, height, and parental background have an economically significant impact on willingness to take risks. The experiment confirms the behavioral validity of this measure, using paid lottery choices. Turning to other questions about risk attitudes in specific contexts, we find similar results on the determinants of risk attitudes, and also shed light on the deeper question of stability of risk attitudes across contexts. We conduct a horse race of the ability of different measures to explain risky behaviors such as holdings stocks, occupational choice, and smoking. The question about risk taking in general generates the best all‐round predictor of risky behavior."

If You Liked This, Sure to Love That - Winning the Netflix Prize - The New York Times
Basement hackers and amateur mathematicians are competing to improve the program that Netflix uses to recommend DVDs — and to win $1 million in the process.

The problem of preference is that it's largely personal and often illogical.

I like David Lynch's Dune because I think the movie is an underrated campy classic.
I otherwise despise Lynch and am medium on Kyle MacLachlan.
Most unweighted recommenders are going to suggest I'll also like Eraserhead and Showgirls.

I also find it interesting that most of the recommenders focus on TV and Movies.
Precious few really look at Books, Comics, or Music.

Set User Info to Brand Your Comments in Word – SciEditor
“Use your business name or moniker if your name is long, like mine, or to remind the team of your business name every time they see one of your comments. Repetition is key to branding and to marketing.

“There are three reasons that setting the user name goes wrong:

“• It only works from this point forward. So it won’t change the ‘Author’ tag on any existing changes. This is handy if you want to preserve others’ changes, but annoying if you only remember to change the name in the middle of your work.
“• The computer’s log in name will be used unless you check the little tick box below the field you entered your name in. You can see the ‘Always use this name/these values regardless of [how I’m] sign[ed] in to Office’ box in the screen grabs above in this post. The wording is slightly different on each operating system just to irk editors.
“• The file is set to ‘remove personal info from this file on save.’ That’s handy for dropping time stamps, but will completely scupper attempts to keep several reviewers’ input separate or to brand your work with your name. More on that in another post.”
