Thanks Samantha for an article that illuminates the trend toward
increasing awareness of ourselves -- our values and our understandings
-- driven by competitive forces cooperating to ratchet forward what
works in business and academia.

The article also helps convey how advanced mathematical modeling can
and will help us better appreciate our similarities and differencies
without the "averaging" or blurring of important distinctions often
taken for granted in contemporary social studies.

As with all technologies, this too is a double-edged sword, and we
would do well to promote access and use of such knowledge tools and
their associated data sets throughout the general population.
