    Doctors conduct postmortems to figure why people died. They do this to solve a crime, prevent the death of others, and satisfy curiosity. However, once somebody dies, it’s too late to help him. Entrepreneurs and their investors also often analyze why a product, service, or company died—especially if it’s someone else’s company. And, as in the case of dead people, a postmortem is too late to do much good for a defunct product, service, or company. Enter the concept of premortems, coined by Gary Klein, chief scientist of Klein Associates, and author of Sources of Power: How People Make…

It may seem like a work of fiction now, a story about someone else, but those were probably among the most giddy and dream-filled days of your life.

    For those of you who like to get your geek on (and rumour has it, they can be found reading this blog) the Computerphile channel just had a video interview with Steve Furber of the Human Brain Project who talks about the custom hardware that’s going to run their neural net simulations. Furber is better known as one of the designers of the BBC Micro and the ARM microprocessor but has more recently been involved in the SpiNNaker project which is the basis of the Neuromorphic Computing Platform for the Human Brain Project. Fascinating interview with a man who clearly likes the word toroid.

    Quick links from the past week in mind and brain news: Be wary of studies that link mental illness with creativity or high IQ. Good piece in The Guardian. Nautilus has a piece on the lost dream journal of neuroscientist Santiago Ramon y Cajal. Video games are tackling mental health with mixed results. Great piece in Engadget. The Globe and Mail asks how we spot the next ‘lone wolf’ terrorist and looks at some of the latest research which has changed what people look for. A third of young Americans say they aren’t 100% heterosexual according to a YouGov survey. 4% class…
  • Psychological science in intelligence service operations

    16 Aug 2015 | 3:59 am
    I’ve got an article in today’s Observer about how British intelligence services are applying psychological science in their deception and infiltration operations. Unfortunately, the online version has been given a headline which is both frivolous and wrong (“Britain’s ‘Twitter troops’ have ways of making you think…”). The ‘Twitter troops’ name was given to the UK Army’s ‘influence operations specialists’ the 77th Brigade whom the article is not focused on and whom I only mention to note their frivolous nickname. Actually, the piece…

    28 Aug 2015 | 4:00 pm
     One of the most critical metrics for software companies — but also one of the most difficult to measure — is the lifetime value of their customers (LTV). The lifetime value dictates how a company should spend its marketing and sales dollars. Unfortunately, many early stage startups struggle to measure LTV, because they haven’t been around very long and, consequently… Read More

     A federal appeals court has just ruled against a 2013 decision ordering the NSA to stop its bulk metadata collection program. The three-judge panel issued its ruling Friday, contending that conservative privacy activist Larry Klayman had not adequately argued the likeliness that his own data had been collected as a part of the metadata collection program.

  • Why Gun Laws Targeting ‘Crazy People’ Would Have Little Benefit

    John M. Grohol, Psy.D.
    28 Aug 2015 | 7:10 am
    Two days ago, according to FBI crime statistics, approximately 38 murders took place in the U.S. Most of these murders were completed with a gun between two or more people who knew one another. But people are only talking about two of them — the deaths of TV reporter Alison Parker and cameraman Adam Ward by Vester Flanagan (aka Bryce Williams). Flanagan was a disgruntled former worker at the local TV station where the three of them briefly worked at the same time for about 9 months in 2012. And one of the victims’ fathers — Andy Parker — has now made it his mission in…

    You’re a storyteller and you probably don’t even know it. Regardless if you’re a writer, you’re telling stories about who you are every day. It’s in the words you use to describe yourself. It’s what you choose to add or delete about your current situation. It’s as much about who you tell as what you say that begins to create your own, “Happy ending.” What you say is so powerful, it has the ability to truly write the pages of your life. Inherent in every story is the protagonist’s obstacle, a challenge so great he or she is ready to…
  • One Way to Lose Weight: The Do More Good Principle

    27 Aug 2015 | 3:55 pm
    One of the interesting things about losing a lot of weight is that everyone wants to know your secret. It is as if there were some magic potion that only a select few know about. When I was 275 pounds, I used to scour the web and magazines for secrets to losing weight; I was a little obsessed. I came into contact with people who were successful with weight loss and would probe them for their secret. They usually said “diet and exercise.” That is definitely not what I wanted to hear. I would try one television “secret” after another, all of them promising swift and long-term weight…
