Daniel Kahneman. 3/1/2010. “The riddle of experience vs. memory .” TEDTalks. TED. Publisher's VersionAbstract
Using examples from vacations to colonoscopies, Nobel laureate and founder of behavioral economics Daniel Kahneman reveals how our "experiencing selves" and our "remembering selves" perceive happiness differently. This new insight has profound implications for economics, public policy -- and our own self-awareness.
Watching the Workers
Tam Harbert. 3/16/2019. “Watching the Workers.” Society for Human Resource Management. Publisher's VersionAbstract
Employers are monitoring their workers more often and using more tracking tools than ever. What's surprising is that a growing number of employees don't mind.

Advancements in technologies―including sensors, mobile devices, wireless communications, data analytics and biometrics―are rapidly expanding monitoring capabilities and reducing the cost of surveillance, and that's prompting more employers to use these tools.

In 2015, about 30 percent of large employers were monitoring employees in nontraditional ways, such as analyzing e-mail text, logging computer usage or tracking employee movements, says Brian Kropp, group vice president of HR practice for Gartner, a research and advisory firm. By 2018, that number had jumped to 46 percent, and Gartner projects it will reach well over 50 percent this year.
