An interesting article in New Scientist (which I can’t be bothered to link to) claims that in a survey, people who drank to moderation were more intelligent than those who didn’t drink. Doesn’t shed any light on the causality of that – whether drinking makes you clever or clever people drink (to be less clever).
Meanwhile New York’s chilliness continues unabated as I relive my childhood listening to the Stone Temple Pilots. The cold weather is accompanied by a pruning of jobs at all our major competitors – Viant, Scient, Razorfish et al. I don’t think we’ll be as sweeping as they’ve been thankfully. We hadn’t grown as quickly funded by VC money.
