Check out Mark A. Hershberger's blog post about shoes and other non-intuitive things, which links to an essay about the health hazards of fancy running shoes. Food for critical thought.

This week, I realized that I'm working on something pretty cool. I had previously focused on how my prototype fell short of what I really wanted to build, and I forgot to keep checking against what was currently being used. I'm excited about the opportunity to try it out and maybe get a few of the ideas from it into IBM's culture (and then the world)!
This week, I set up a wiki for my research lab. I'm going to be the guinea pig. I'll write my thesis online. Password-protected, though!
This week, I wrote about falling in love with reading and thinking about how to help J learn how to appreciate it too. (Quick, while she's young and impressionable! Repeat after me: Science/art/math/crafts/everything is wonderful. Reading rocks. Life is good.) I got so many insights and tips from my mom and other readers, which I should write up and post here soon. =) Thanks!
This week, I filed my taxes. I hope this is the last year I'm getting a refund! I do actually believe in taxes, and I probably will still keep believing in them even after they take away a third of my pay or something like that.
This week, I met with a usability expert at IBM who might be able to help me conduct my summative study. Yay!
This week, I talked to someone from IBM HR who helped me take a look at my job and immigration paperwork requirements.
This week, W decided to try out GTD. This has also incidentally resulted in a rise in my productivity. <grin>
This week's tea party was also lots of fun. Good conversation, particularly with Mike Tsang's questions. =)
Next week, I'll take the plunge and do a pilot usability test. I'm running a little behind schedule, I think, but we'll make it all work. I may have to be anti-social and focus almost entirely on writing if I'm going to write a hundred-page thesis in a month and a half, but I really want to finish the darn thing already.
Life is great! I'm glad to get back to my weekly reviews...
