I was reading Twitter on my phone today, when I saw this post from Bill Gates:
Thinking to myself, “Steven Pinker? Isn’t that one of the Stevens from Freakonomics?” [EDIT: As it turns out, he is not.] I clicked the video link to watch whatever it was.
The interesting part is, due to a strange glitch in Android, following the link did not take me to Mr. Gates’ video (which I still haven’t watched). Instead, it took me to the Ben Folds Five video featuring the Fraggles, featured on the Nerdist podcast today.
Note that I am not complaining. “Speaks to a more positive way of looking at the world”, indeed.
