Identity is the low-hanging fruit
mostly stuff about social media tribes and left/right politics

Jonah Peretti in 1996: "I assert that the increasingly rapid rate at which images are distributed and consumed in late capitalism necessitates a corresponding increase in the rate that individuals assume and shed identities. Because advertisements link identity with the need to purchase products, the acceleration of visual culture promotes the hyper-consumption associated with late capitalism."

Comparing within- and between-family polygenic score prediction | bioRxiv
See this thread for our new study on polygenic scores within fraternal twin pairs! Main point: take extra care with polygenic scores for traits like IQ & education, because they're confounded by (what seem to be) socioeconomic status effects. Not so for traits like height & BMI.
The idea is that the parenting is caused by the parental genotype, so it gets (mis)classified as a genetic effect on the children. It's really another way of looking at "genetic nurture" - see the papers from last year.

Welcome to AirSpace | The Verge
airbnb/foursquare and other social media are homogenizing forces, whitewashing the globe

"Among the phenomenon’s consequences is depersonalization, in the psychiatric sense: 'a state in which one loses all sense of identity.' I personally like the AirSpace style. I can’t say no to a tasteful, clean, modern life space. But thinking through its roots and negative implications makes me reconsider my attachment. It’s hard to identify with something so empty at its core."
