how we decide in chess

From a neuroscience blog!

Can working with computers improve our intuition? Interesting reading (especially in conjunction with Kasparov's NYRB piece); interesting comments. (via Andrew Sullivan)

Parenthetically, note that Carlsen's career is generating considerable attention from non-chessplayers.

P.S.  The blogger, Jonah Lehrer, was on Terry Gross's Fresh Air last Friday.  His new book is How We Decide.  And if you haven't read Malcolm Gladwell's Outliers: The Story of Success, you really should: at least one chapter is of particular interest to chess players.
