Supporting You Are Not So Smart

I've been following the You Are Not So Smart blog for a while now and frequently share its posts on Google Reader. The author, David McRaney, writes about human thought and behavior, drawing on research conducted over the last several decades. David describes it as "a blog devoted to self delusion and irrational thinking." It's a great read and I highly recommend it. There's a book coming out soon and I think this is a cause, and a creative professional, worth supporting, so I'm including the book's YouTube trailer below. Doesn't hurt that he's offering bribes for posting the video! It's only 3:37 long and well worth watching.

And a quick note for readers in the Richmond, VA area: I will be presenting Building Optimized Rich Web Applications with Java, an introduction to Google Web Toolkit at the Richmond, VA Google Technology Users Group tomorrow. It's not too late to sign up for the meeting, which is free to attend.
