    1. Faces … no Seth Roberts?
    2. Quantified Self movement a fad? Hardly, but hopefully all the intrusive gadgets will be a short-lived fad. Henry David Thoreau’s book about his time at Walden Pond was a great self-experiment, especially since gadgets weren’t distracting him from his self-observations.

    Yesterday I watched about half an hour of the talks with bigthink’s experts.
    Today I feel especially well—almost euphoric. The change is very easy to notice. I will look into it further.

    I must admit that my prior attempts to watch Bloggingheads didn’t have any noticeable effect.

    The difference between Bigthink and Bloggingheads is that I actually enjoy Bigthink’s videos a lot more, so I constantly look at the experts’ faces. When I watched Bloggingheads I oftentimes looked away, because I usually listened to a podcast instead of Bloggingheads own audio. Because of that, my perception of time spent actually looking at faces may be skewed.
