lies in simulated annealing. I also include an explanation of simulated
annealing and how it can be applied to achieving happiness. Would be
interested to hear your thoughts.

Does the science reveal any sociological schema that assist in facilitating these technological leaps that transcend our acquiescence?

By: Carter Sat, 27 Feb 2010 21:19:38 +0000 Hang, this is weird. It seems like our blog posts overlapped again. This is an awesome post. But what's interesting is that about a month ago I wrote my first blog post which argues that the path to true happiness lies in simulated annealing. I also include an explanation of simulated annealing and how it can be applied to achieving happiness. Would be interested to hear your thoughts.

By: Hang Tue, 16 Feb 2010 02:06:11 +0000 Hi Joe,

Thanks for the compliment, I was always dissatisfied with descriptions of Simulated Annealing as they made so complicated what was, to me, a blindingly simple concept. I'm glad I managed to convey that simplicity across.

I don't know if I spoke specifically to you about this but, at CHI last year, I made two specific predictions:

1. in 10 years time, 90%+ of all phones in use in the developed world would look recognizably like an iPhone (in the same way 90%+ of all desktop computers look recognizably like an Alto)
2. Apple was too smart to be working on a tablet.

For the last year, I'd been itching to put down on paper what I had been saying out loud but I hadn't been able to find the exact right framing that would make such an argument clear to a mass audience.

This post is laying the foundation for what is to become my argument for why the iPad could be the largest mistake that Apple ever made.

By: Joe McCarthy Tue, 16 Feb 2010 01:15:22 +0000 This is one of the most evocative and approachable visualizations and descriptions of simulated annealing I've encountered.

Your discussion of the costs of [in]vested interests reminded me of an article by John Gourville in the June 2006 issue of HBR, Eager Sellers and Stony Buyers: Understanding the Psychology of New-Product Adoption, in which he describes how “loss aversion”, the “endowment effect” and “status-quo bias” all contribute to our reticence to try (or buy) new things. The upshot: most people have to perceive a potential improvement factor of 3:1 before they are willing to abandon the old for the new.
