wedding planning on the move


So a repeat question these days is, "When is you and LaoPu going to flip the switch!?!"

The answer:
Though we haven't set the date for the wedding, Jess and I have set the date for setting the date. That's going to happen in mid August. We're going to go around to some potential wedding sites, and pick one. Then we're going to pick a date that agrees with the reservations already placed on that site.

So. There you have it. We will soon have a date. Then we will be happy to share that date, the blissful date of our blissful occasion.

Implicit Association Test

saw these Implicit Association Tests today. It's an awesome site for checking the reality of race bias (and other kinds of bias too).

It turns my data suggest I have :
  • a slight automatic preference for light-skinned faces relative to dark-skinned faces.
  • no discernable relation between Black Faces and Weapons,
  • a slight association between 'Male' and 'Career',
  • a slight automatic preference for Young relative to Old,
  • a moderate automatic preference for European American relative to African American
