  1. Thanks for posting this – it’s really thought provoking. I’ve often had the gut-level suspicion that having more options isn’t always better, but I’ve never really made much of it, because it’s seemingly counter to common sense. I guess common sense isn’t always right.

  2. Yeah, that guy is awesome! There are 2 vids of him on TED. I also read his book “Stumbling on happiness” which I can recommend!

  3. I wish I had a spare life so I could watch all of the fascinating TED talks on the web, not to mention the videos Google puts up when they have famous authors speak.
