The Year In Ideas

from the lots-of-ideas dept

The NY Times Magazine today has a review of the “ideas” of 2001. There’s some good stuff there. Many are downright bizarre or ridiculous. The full list is on the front page of the magazine and you can pick and chose what “ideas” you feel like reading about. Some interesting ones to check out: the happiness quotient of a particular country, the brain scan lie detector (which we’ve spoken about before), and the power of a single email. One interesting one, though is about the dropper popper – which I’ll admit is a really amazing toy, but which is certainly not new to 2001. I had one many many years ago, and the thing rocked. You could play with it for hours. I didn’t know they still made them, but now I know what to search under so I can go buy one.
