Time After Time

Last week I mocked Time magazine's cover story on George Clooney. This week I notice the cover story is very similar to the first long piece I wrote, The Dubious Value of Experience, in which I argue that experience hasn't been a very useful predictor for White House success.

I think mine is better, but it's possible I'm biased. More interestingly is the accompanying piece, The Science of Experience, in which it is argued that "the number of years of experience in a domain is a poor predictor of attained performance."

Okay, I think I've patted my back enough for one day...
