The stack

I just realized that I’ve been piling all the articles I’ve been reading for Cognitive Daily for nearly a year now in one stack. It’s over 170 articles, and the pile itself is quite impressive:

Over ten inches of dense, two-column text — that’s a whole lot of psychology knowledge. You might wonder if I’m beginning to approach Greta’s level, whether I’m becoming a psychology expert myself. Well, Greta has five 60-inch long file drawers worth of articles she’s read stored in her lab — and that’s not even counting books, journals she subscribes to, and articles she’s read online. With the help of photoshop, I’ve created an image to show the relative levels of Greta’s psychology reading and my own. Here you go:

Somehow, I don’t think I’ll be catching up to Greta anytime soon.

    Yikes! My stack is like Greta’s. Last year, prior to our lab’s move to a breand new building, I had to take all of that stuff HOME!!! It’s still here….

    I think if you piled up all my reading in a way similar to Greta’s, I’d have a stack as tall as hers — it’s just that my reading hasn’t been concentrated in the same field the way hers has. That’s one thing that’s always impressed me about Greta: her focus in a single discipline. Even now, I’m keeping two almost completely nonintersecting blogs, and yesterday I had to talk myself out of starting a third one!
