For those who have an interest in the web related (generally) books from O’Reilly Media, they’re moving a number of items – 30 to quote the title – to ebooks.
Personally the title of one caught my eye – Mind Performance Hacks.
I guess one can *hack* anything if one tries hard enough. Being old-fashioned, and not Web 2.0 compliant, I had always thought of these tricks and games as everyday *thinking* and using your brain. Then again I am of a generation that was taught long division; I don’t need or rely on a calculator/electronic till to tally up my purchases or my change and I love nothing more than to extend my ability to do crosswords (cryptic and normal). I have even given Sudoku a run too.
I also have to admit that Mr O considers me to be the Trivial Pursuit Queen.
(I take that to mean that I have more useless pieces of knowledge floating around in my brain than is strictly necessary.)
