Implicit Associations Testing Your Prejudices

Paul, · Categories: Amusements, General

Tom Bowers unearthed this site from Harvard, which aims to test your/our implicit associations concerning gender, race and weight with a simple interactive test. Tom found the site in the Washington Post Sunday Magazine January 23rd. He writes “Its premise is that although many Americans believe they are not prejudiced, a new test provides evidence that they really are.”
I donno. I did pretty well myself. Does this mean I’m “Clear”?

Random and Bruce Lee

This book, A Million Random Digits With 100,000 Normal Deviates, is why Amazon’s “search inside the book” feature was invented. A must for those who keep telling me that there really is something to the Davinci Code.

For the more visually oriented, Nassib recommends the Bruce Lee Remixer. You can be master of the Master of Kung-fo with many posibilities as every key on a keyboard becomes active for the remix. Includes mucho audio.

ibiblio alum, Mark McCarthy, writes from Darfur Sudan where he is the coordinator for the Humanitarian Information Centre in Sudan.
If we are lucky, we’ll get to see Mark and his wife Rathi here in a few months. In the meantime, visit the HIC-Darfur site and see what he’s up to and up against.
Before going to Sudan, Mark and Rathi were working in Rwanda.
