30 Rock, the interwebs, little guitar playin’ dude

1. Are college kids working less hard? A recent study suggests college students are spending only 27 hours a week doing work and attending class versus 40 hours a week in the 1960s.

2. Of course the internet is changing the way kids socialize: omg study!

3.  From Freakonomics:

recent episode of NBC’s 30 Rock provided a wonderful insight into thinking like an economist.

At the six-minute point, Alec Baldwin’s character, Jack Donaghy, is trying to choose which love interest to pursue, and decides to follow his heart.  But by this, he means the acronym for:

Hard

Equations

And

Rational

Thinking.

So yes, we economists always advocate thinking with your HEART.

4. Thanks to Verb Vixen for watching the Ellen Degeneres show and telling me about this kid, not sure why it says he is playing Paranoid..:
