Why Is Gratitude So Difficult, Yet Outrage So Easy?

1 Comment and 2 Shares

At a time of year that reminds us to be grateful, brain science explains why we aren’t quick to say thanks.

Our brains are at odds with the concept of Thanksgiving. Gratitude should be the order of the day (and every day if you subscribe to the notion that giving thanks daily can make you happier), yet we are much more likely to be outraged by traffic delays, rude people, and a barrage of headlines blaring the latest bad news.

Basically my job. It’s hard to get people to think about the inherent nature of formats: digital is easy to copy perfectly but it rots as soon as people stop using it. Too many people are obsessed with the physical storage layer rather than the never-stop-moving part…

This $20 security camera is aiming for the Nest Cam’s throne

Lovelace: The Origin is creative commons so you can feel free to use that too..)
