John Aziz argues that the boom-bust cycle is just something that we’re going to have to get used to.

It’s an ongoing debate over whether or not we want a lot more kids going into STEM and the computer fields. However, this seems pretty unambiguously bad to me. Not just the gender and racial imbalances, but the paltry numbers coming from some parts of the country.

A lot of people have been arguing that there is a bubble in higher education. Here’s an argument I am less familiar with that sounds like it might have some truth to it: People who can afford college aren’t having kids, and people who can’t are.

A new film about Mitt Romney points to a lack of confidence on his part as election day approached, which contradicts the book Double Down.

According to new data, half of inmate rape is committed by guards and staff.

A new study suggests that Facebook will lose 80% of its user base by 2017. I’ll take that bet, if only because 2017 is only three years away and I don’t see a suitable replacement on the horizon. Will Oregmus won’t take that bet either, and says the research is flawed.

Candy Crush owns the word Candy.

Procrastination is often a case of sacrificing tomorrow for today. Since our tomorrow self is something of a stranger to us, it’s easy to screw that guy.

    From this coming Sunday’s NYT Magazine:

    I would appreciate your commentary on this one.

      Not much to say. It’s a good article that I think points to the difficulties in couples mapping out new grounds. A fair amount of it is anecdotal and some of the statistics are polluted, but it does touch on what I figure to be real issues.

      Division of labor and spheres of influence is one of the benefits of the traditional model. Social standards of masculinity persist from earlier eras and new ones either haven’t been figured out or are incompatible with the human psyche.

      Sometimes there is a reason that norms are what they are, though oftentimes it’s still good to push boundaries.

      For our own part, we’ve found a pretty good situation, all things considered. We have the advantages of divided labor. We didn’t have some of the illusions (and perhaps self-delusions) that I think some other couples have about what they want. And, of course, we’re in a female-breadwinner household for good reasons (my wife’s income) rather than bad reasons (unforseen exit from the work force).
