Maybe it is just me. Most of us have heard the phrase “If you assume, you make an *** out of U and Me.”   Hearing that over and over has left me with a bad opinion of the idea of assumptions.  Whenever I see the word, my initial reaction is negativity.   After spending some time thinking about it more, that needs to change. Assumptions are at the heart of most innovations and are often critical to gaining fresh insight.  In the scientific world, n ...

Biz Stone In Conversation With Steven Johnson - 2014 SXSW Music, Film + Interactive Festival
I have read Steven Johnson’s “The Ghost Map” twice: once for an independent research project during my senior year of high school, and then again after the K-State Book Network announced it as its common read selection. Though the book is particularly aimed at epidemiological enthusiasts, Johnson tells a fantastic story: one that paramount events in modern epidemiological science turned mystery narrative. The story centers—quite literally—around ...

Source: The Atlantic

Electricity has been used in medical treatments all the way back to 46 C.E. when Scribonius Largus treated the Roman Emperor Claudius for headaches with an electric eel, a process that he recorded in his Compositiones Medicae. But it wasn’t until Sigmund Freud came along that electroshock therapy took on its more modern form. From 1892 to 1893, Freud famously worked with Ilona Weiss (called Fraulein Elisabeth von R. by Freud), a 24-year ...
