Computer Assisted Telephone Interviewing systems

My organization is going to begin conducting larger telephone surveys than we have in the past, and needs CATI software to facilitate this. We need something that will track contact attempts, outcomes, etc. as well as allow the interviewer to read items and enter responses. Google tells me there are a lot of options out there, but I can't find anything that compares them by price, features, user satisfactions, etc. Have any of you used a system you particularly like (or one you hated)? Are there specific features you think I should be filtering on? [more inside]

How did Fritz Zwicky appear in Cosmos?

In the last episode of the new Cosmos series, (someone portraying) Fritz Zwicky appears briefly, to sort of stare and blink and then make a gesture like this. He died in 1974. What is the source of this footage? Is it an actor (with an oddly non-speaking role, and no acknowledgment yet on IMDB), some sort of CGI magic from photos, or archival footage? Our household is unreasonably curious about this.

Travel China with a baby

We want to see the parts that showcase China's natural beauty, what we couldn't see anywhere else, what will likely be gone by the time we return next time. But we are limited by traveling with a super flexible 2 year old, and we don't have a ton of time. What do you recommend? [more inside]

Can you find this Southwest Airlines commercial online?

I'm recalling a TV commercial where a wealthy businessman is walking through an airport, talking on his cellphone. He indicates his tremendous wealth by saying into the phone something like "Ten million dollars, twenty million dollars, what's the difference?" Then he walks up to Brand X Airlines's ticket counter and asks to buy a ticket somewhere. They say it'll be like $3,000, he's stunned, says nevermind and walks over to the Southwest counter to buy a ticket for much cheaper. It was probably on the air between 10 and 20 years ago.

Where to find a historic video demonstrating how a computer CPU works?

I once saw a film, made in the early 60s, that demonstrated the basics of what is now called "Computer Architecture" using players at a card table as a metaphor. The film is shot from above and each of the "players" serve roles like "instruction fetch", "memory", "arithmetic unit", etc. The dealer plays the role of the clock. Can anyone point me to an official credit/source for this film? [more inside]

Help me find an older article/book excerpt about office productivity

A few years ago (3?) I read a brilliant article/book excerpt about radical office productivity. It detailed an office structure where employees were instructed to only communicate to eachother through email and IM even if they were in adjacent cubicles. The idea was to minimize disruptions and maximize productivity. I want to say the writing was akin to Chip & Dan Heath or was by a high-profile author but that is a guess, really.
