December 11, Thursday night -- Reading Daniel H. Pink

Reading A Whole New Mind: Why Right-Brainers Will Rule the Future, by Daniel H. Pink. He likes to "geek out" on subjects. Right now he's reading about the mind. He comes to the bookstore and pulls all the books off the shelves and reads what he thinks is good in each one. Why not just doing a google search? --when you do that, you don't get quality information. You get what's manipulated by people in advertising who want to sell you things. Books have higher quality information.

Other subjects he's been "geeking out" on -- linguistics, programming, kung fu, yoga, learning how to read fast, and caffeine. Apparently, as he learned about caffeine, you never lose the cognitive benefits of caffeine even after years of abuse.
