This is a fascinating video, all about how we don't really have access to an unbiased view of the Internet anymore. So watch it for that. But here's the part that's relevant to this blog: "In our Netflix queue, there's an epic struggle going on, between our future aspirational selves, and our more impulsive present selves. We all want to be someone who has watched Rashomon, but right now we want to watch Ace Ventura for the fourth time." This is exactly what Daniel Kahneman is on about.


Hat tip to my friend Ray for the link.
