Work from Anywhere or Co-locate? Autonomy versus Learning Effects at the United States Patent Office

Managers often ask whether worker productivity rises or falls with work-from-anywhere (WFA) policies. This study of a real firm presents robust econometric evidence that WFA regimes can have positive effects on net worker output, especially for experienced hires working interdependently. For new hires, however, colocation is often needed to facilitate their learning. [Author: by Prithwiraj Choudhury, Cirrus Foroughi, and Barbara Larson]

Kids of the 1% are 10 times more likely to become inventors

How Michael Jackson’s “Thriller” Video Changed Pop Culture Forever: Revisit the 13-Minute Short Film Directed by John Landis

Michael Jackson's Thriller, the album, had spent the previous year at the top of the charts before the John Landis-directed video for the title track debuted in 1983. Two previous videos, for massive hits “Billie Jean” and “Beat It,” kept him on constant rotation on the fledgling MTV and other networks. It seemed that the “naïve, preternaturally gifted 25-year-old” couldn’t get any more internationally famous, but then, as Nancy Griffin writes at Vanity Fair, “it was the ‘Thriller’ video...

November 2018 Favorites: The 5 Things I Loved This Month

Thankful for family and birthdays this month. Ah, November: A month with Thanksgiving and Black Friday and for me, my birthday! I celebrated at home because my campus is fairly close by. Going home and cooking with my dad was wonderful. I made gumbo for the first time and although I doubt anyone from New Orleans would think it was authentic, it turned out well for a first time. Seeing my mom and grandma and little brother was wonderful too. I didn't do an ounce of homework when I was home, whic...

Between tuition fees, housing costs, textbooks, and entertainment, it’s no wonder so many people end up in the throes of student debt after graduation. This C...

See the Complete Works of Vermeer in Augmented Reality: Google Makes Them Available on Your Smartphone

No museum could ever put on a complete Vermeer exhibition. The problem isn't quantity: thus far, only 36 works have been definitively attributed to the 17th-century Dutch painter of domestic scenes and portraits, most famously Girl with a Pearl Earring. But they all hang in collections scattered around the world, not just in places like Amsterdam and The Hague but London, New York, Paris, and elsewhere besides. Some have become too fragile to travel, and one, The Concert, was stolen in 1990 and...

Why Should We Read Kurt Vonnegut? An Animated Video Makes the Case

Beneath Kurt Vonnegut’s grim, absurdist humor beat the heart of a humanist, but not, by any stretch, an optimist. Vonnegut looked balefully at every project intended to improve the sorry state of human affairs. In Player Piano, for example, he imagines a future very much like that envisioned for us by our contemporary technocratic elite: nearly all work has been automated and the mass of unemployed are given a modest stipend for their living and funneled into what anthropologist David Gr...
