I can’t stop being amazed by people using technology not to optimize our daily life but to unoptimize it. Are you a robot? I don’t. Some at Yahoo either.
A few fellows from Yahoo Research designed a “new mapping tool that, instead of suggesting the shortest walking course from A to B, is able to suggest a route that is both short and pleasant”.
Despite being 12% longer in length and roughly 7 and a half minutes longer in time, respondents preferred the option of taking more scenic, quiet, and happy routes.
Fuck your productivity tips man. Get Lost.
