computational kindness

This episode of The Note to Self podcast was pretty good. I especially liked this bit:

3. Computational Kindness The next time you try to plan a meeting, skip the classic line, I’m totally free.” Brian calls this Passing the computational buck.” Instead, ask a binary question like Are you free for dinner at 5 p.m. on Thursday?” It may go against the rules of etiquette, but setting a specific window for availability should be more efficient.
