You and Austin have hit the nail on the head. It's the CONSTRAINT of paper that is the key. Use index cards :)

Great post (agree with the idea of "but what's the return?"). Not sure if you saw this, but we're launching a new program as well: http://bit.ly/8cnkR

I agree with Fernando's comments on causality vs. correlation. It was my main beef with the book and while it was an interesting read (along with Tipping Point and likely Blink, which I haven't read yet), it's very very very hard to make any causal argument using Gladwell's treatment of the statistics.

Actually, due to the experiment design, I doubt one could come in afterwards and claim causality anywhere :(
