Are you a jerk, a slacker, a depressive pessimist, a diplomat?

This American Life on NPR has a good podcast about one bad apple spoiling groups, contrary to common thought that group dynamics are more powerful than an individual.  The first ten minutes or so lays out the findings of a single study.  While it may not be conclusive, it does beg the question of where you fit in your organization?

Gigapixels of image data, now with more zoom action!

Gigapixels of image data, now with more zoom action!

Microsoft released a Seadragon app for the iPhone of all things. Why is this awesome? Photosynth was born of Seadragon.

I’m actually surprised at how well it runs on my iPhone Edge connection. Definitely worth a look.

Netflix on Tivo

Trust me.  It's glorious.

Trust me. It's glorious.

My Tivo got the service update that enabled Netflix streaming. I reactivated my Netflix account, enabled it on my Tivo, and was streaming content in about 3 minutes. The quality is excellent and the interface is great–you simply add a “Watch Instantly” flick to your “Watch Instantly Queue” (separate from your normal DVD queue) and it becomes available immediately on your Tivo to watch.

My only two qualms are the small selection (which will grow in time) and no option to have japanese w/english subtitles for anime series (we’re stuck with english dubs).

I foresee cutting cable soon (after BSG is over). :)

UPDATE: I tested this out at Starbucks on the walk home. It works like a charm.
