Friends know I need at 9 hours of sleep a day – well I’m glad there’s an article offering scientific rationalization 🙂
- “Sleep disorders can impair children’s I.Q.’s as much as lead exposure.” – seven IQ for staying an hour late!
- a slightly sleepy sixth-grader will perform in class like a mere fourth-grader.
Only quarrel I have with the article is that it seems to imply sleep is less important for adults. Do we stop learning once we reach 21?
this is a great consolation prize. Thank you O’Reilly for thinking about the rest of us.
Andy Kessler on why universities are posting their lectures online too!
Here’s a travel site that I had a very good first impression with: http://www.tripit.com/
What’s unique about it is that you just email your flight itinerary to the site, and it’ll create an account for you, with all your trip info on it! It’s almost like how ClipClip targeted to the travel industry. Except, they’ve thought much deeper about using email as a UI.
