  2. Honestly, this is kind of the job I sometimes wish I had...I've got just the OCD brain for it, I think.

  5. It is interesting to see what they've said, but I like to hear the plan, and the reasoning and explanation behind each thought. That way I can analyze it myself.

  7. This is one of those things that you'd love to think a computer did, but in reality, some poor kid who just graduated from NYU in June and shares a one-bedroom apartment in Jersey City with 6 other people stayed up for hours at night doing for an editor who was screaming "I want this done yesterday!"

  11. Very cool, but I can think of better uses for that intern's time... Like doing my laundry. Or dishes. Or cooking me dinner. You know, useful stuff. And selfish ;)
