Five Laws for Interpersonal Sensitivity and Success

It’s not very often that you can learn strategies for talking and communicating that always are true. Much of the time in psychology, communication or sociology, strategies are very context oriented. The strategy will work in one situation, but not in another. That means that you’ll have a lot to learn to be successful. But when the strategy is a rule or a law, you can apply it to all kinds of situations in many different contexts.Back in 2015, I wrote about a fascinating study by Rod Hart and D...

Celebrating a Decade of AJW’s Taproom

The post Celebrating a Decade of AJW’s Taproom appeared first on iRunFar. On October 14, 2011, I published the first article in AJW’s Taproom. It is hard to believe that today marks the 10-year anniversary of that day. It has been one of the great honors of my life to write for iRunFar and I owe Bryon and Meghan a huge debt of gratitude for giving me the space to share my voice with the trail running and ultrarunning world for all these years. As I look back over the last 10 years of articles, ...

Blinking

Back in 2005 Malcolm Gladwell wrote a book called Blink that was about how our subconscious allows us to make fast decisions that are often as good or better than slow considered decisions. I was talking to someone yesterday evening about how the venture capital business has changed over the last decade and I explained that we used to have weeks, if not months, to make our investment decisions and now we have days or if we are lucky a week or two. And I observed that the rapid pace of vent...

Resolving Unconscious Bias

In these trying times, one thing has become clear: the biases we live with restrict our choices. Certainly no one ever wants to harm anyone. And yet, because of the unconscious nature of them, we are too often unaware that we even have them. It’s not our fault, but we must learn to take more responsibility for them. Our biases have been developed through the stories of our lives. From birth, our parent’s beliefs and life trajectory become part of our unconscious, very personal, ecosystem made u...

Substack doubles down on uncensored ‘free speech’ with acquisition of Letter

Substack announced last week that it acquired Letter, a platform that encourages written dialogue and debate. The financials of the deal weren’t disclosed, but this acquisition follows Substack’s recent $65 million raise. Newsletters are all the rage — Facebook launched its exclusive, celeb-studded Bulletin platform last month, and Twitter acquired the newsletter startup Revue earlier this year. Letter doesn’t publish email newsletters like Substack, but rather, it allows writers to engage in ep...

The Tipping Point for 3D content is Now

The tipping point is that magic moment when an idea, trend, or social behaviour crosses a threshold, tips, and spreads like wildfire. Malcolm Gladwell,  Some tech revolutions happen quickly, like a tsunami. For example, smart phone penetration. Others take time, and multiple waves, until they become mainstream. I believe we’re now at the tipping point for 3D content adoption and why it represents a huge opportunity for startups. 3D content has been around for a while. What’s driving 3D ...

Of particular interest to him were the men who dreamed of precision bombing as a way to make war quick, efficient, and far less deadly.He concludes that the Bomber Mafia was ahead of its time. Humanity has always had the odd idea that one tactical change or new technology is going to make war painless. Nowhere is this dream presented as a greater drama than in the st...

The renegade WW2 pilots who tried to end war as we know it | Malcolm Gladwell

Much has been written about World War II in the seven and a half decades since it ended in 1945. But as writer Malcolm Gladwell shows with his new book "The Bomber Mafia," some incredible stories and perspectives have been largely forgotten.A group of pilots, led by Brigadier General Haywood Hansell, earned the derogatory nickname Bomber Mafia because of a not-widely-shared dream that they could use a few strategic bombings to lower the death toll and have a "clean" war."But that's not what war ...

Running and Technology

The post Running and Technology appeared first on iRunFar. There is a mossy rock wall near the house where I grew up in northern New Jersey. At the start of my runs, I would jog up the driveway, turn left and ascend a hill, turn right and ascend another hill, turn left again, turn right to ascend a third hill, make another left, and then cruise up and down some rolling slopes past the mossy rock wall. The rock wall was in the throes of erosion, being overtaken by moss, and it showed signs of bei...
