  • Heterosexual couples are now more likely to meet a romantic partner online than through personal contacts and connections. "Our previous thinking was that the role of friends in dating would never be displaced," Stanford sociologist Michael Rosenfeld says. "But it seems like online dating is displacing it. That’s an important development in people’s relationship with technology."

  • Stanford researchers invited study participants to clean dishes with a "smart" faucet that would reduce water use by adapting to their washing styles. (Except the sink's motion sensor was actually a camera and the AI was a hidden human—shhhh.) https://stanford.io/2Hfsbr2

  • Jay Hamilton, the Hearst Professor of Communication and director of Stanford's journalism program, spent the summer of 1980 opening mail at a congressman's office in Washington D.C., fielding constituent concerns about the economy, oil prices and television commercials. When a check came in from a political action committee, he started asking questions — and the answers led him to his honors thesis, to graduate school, and to co-authoring his first book. "No matter what you're doing, you can learn about the environment, the ecosystem you're in," he says. "Even if you're only opening the mail."

  • Dustin Schroeder was 16 and the youngest member of his local astronomy club—by a margin of 46 years—when a professor from Case Western Reserve University invited him to intern in a physics lab for the summer. His parents gave him permission to give up his paid lifeguarding job and to borrow their car, and the arc of his life was completely changed. “To me, that was my first exposure to universities, to physics,” he remembers, “to the fact that people had jobs where they just got paid to think things up.” Schroeder and the professor, Dan Akerib, are now colleagues, and neighbors, at Stanford.
