Author Maria Konnikova thinks Sherlock Holmes Could Have Created Google

So last year, a fascinating study came out in the Journal of Science from a team led by Betsy Sparrow at Columbia. And in this study, the scientists showed that people who used Google and who thought that they would be able to access information on a computer later on didn't remember it as well as the people who didn't think they would have access to it.

So you have one kind of key variable: Do you think you'll be able to use your computer later on to find this information? If the answer is no, you're going to remember it. If the answer is yes, you're not going to remember it, but you will remember where to find it.

So you'll remember where it was stored; you'll remember what the folder was; you'll remember how to access it on the computer. So it's not that you're not remembering anything; it's that you're remembering a very different thing.

Do you use your memory to store the actual piece of information? Do you use it to store the retrieval process? So I take a few things from this.

Thing one, technology can be very bad for our memory, if we let it be bad for it. So if we always rely on it and if we have this attitude of, "oh, I don't need to remember this because I'll always be able to look it up," you won't remember it. And then you won't have that knowledge in your head and then you won't have anything in your brain attic to play with; you won't have that knowledge base.

You won't be able to be imaginative like Sherlock Holmes. You won't be able to reach those conclusions because your attic will be pretty bare.

But we can also use it to enhance our memory by saying, okay, I know that there are these great technological benefits. Why don't I use that to create this virtual storage space for myself?

Now, Holmes does this, too. Holmes has files that he accesses and he says, "Watson, dear fellow, look up my file for this case. Look up my file for that case." So he remembers that he has the file. He remembers that there was a case. He doesn't necessarily remember all of these details contained in the file. So think of Google as this vastly expanded Holmesian filing system - so you can use it for exactly that.

What are the things that I want to remember and that I want to be able to access later on and focus on remembering how to access them? And then keep your mind space for those things that you think will be important for you to know at any point.

So the exercise that I like to say for myself is this: If I were on a desert island with no power, or I don't even have to go to a desert island... in Hurricane Sandy, I had no power, no Internet, no cell phone service. Nothing.

So, if Hurricane Sandy strikes again, and I don't have anything, do I have everything that I need immediately in my head? What are those things that I really can't rely on a computer for? That is where your personal brain comes into play - the brain attic of memeory of the really important stuff...

Sherlock Holmes and the Nine-Dragon Sigil by Tim Symonds Review
Nov 18th, 2016 by Aldouspi

sherlock-holmes-nine-dragon-sigil
While it always fun, yet commonplace, to read a Sherlock Holmes story where London is the setting, it is a little bit rarer and more of a treat when readers are taken to exotic places where we get a chance to discover a place and history now all but forgotten.

Holmes has retired to the Sussex Downs to care for bees and Watson separated from his friend takes a lonely trip to China. But the two of them are still destined to have adventures together...

It's the year 1906. Rumors abound that a deadly plot is hatching - not in the fog-ridden back-alleys of London's Limehouse district or the sinister Devon moors of the Hound of the Baskervilles, but in faraway Peking. Holmes's task - discover whether such a plot exists and if so, foil it. But are the assassins targeting the young and progressive Ch'ing Emperor or his imperious aunt, the fearsome Empress Dowager Cixi? The murder of either could spark a civil war. The fate of China and the interests of Britain's vast Empire in the Orient could be at stake.

Holmes and Watson take up the mission with their customary confidence until they find they are no longer in the familiar landscapes of Edwardian England. Instead, they tumble into the Alice In Wonderland world of the Forbidden City."

This is author, Symonds' fifth Sherlock Holmes novel.

A Reader's Comment: Sherlock Holmes and the Nine Dragon Sigil is a mystery/crime novel worthy of the Sherlock Holmes title. I recommend this for any and all fans of Chinese settings, historical fiction, mystery, crime, thriller, and Sherlock Holmes. It covers a vast range of topics from old English apparatus's to the chaotic imagery of two men wandering around what feels like a whole other world!

Don't miss out on this new and attention capturing read! You'll be flipping the pages so fast you won't realize it's over until you've reached the satisfying "Finis!"

Sherlock Holmes and the Round Table Adventure by Joseph W Svec III
Nov 13th, 2016 by Aldouspi

sherlock-holmes-round-table

We all know of King Arthur and the knights of the round table, but who would expect a knight from Camelot to visit Sherlock Holmes...

"Merlin predicted you would say that." When a knight from the Round Table of Camelot bursts into 221-B Baker Street demanding the help of Sherlock Holmes. And there begins the oddest, most mystical adventure Holmes and Watson have ever experienced. Merlin himself, has called the great detective and his scribe back through time, to solve a vexing problem.

England's greatest Poet Laureate is missing! A Unicorn leads the way through the portal in the standing stones, and waiting for them are a series of challenges unlike anything they have ever encountered before, as well as Pixies, Gnomes, Hobgoblins, a dragon, an enchanted mirror, a very odd chess match, an underground labyrinth, King Arthur, and his Round Table, and the most infamous sorceress of history and myth, Morgan le Fey!

Plot twists abound, as logic and rational thinking collide head on with myth and magic, resulting in Sherlock crafting a masterful scheme that echoes all the way down through history. Brace your selves for a most fascinating and enjoyable tale.

In Joseph Svec III’s first two Holmes novels, the author has had Holmes travel to Wonderland seeking Alice and Lewis Carroll and then under the sea on the Nautilus searching for Jules Verne. Readers of those two books, will be glad to find Holmes is traveling backwards in time to the days of King Arthur to seek out Alfred Lord Tennyson!

Sherlock Holmes in Russia by Alex Auswaks Review
Sep 16th, 2016 by Aldouspi

sherlock-holmes-in-russia

Here is a review and look at the collection of Sherlock Holmes pastiches entitled "Sherlock Holmes in Russia" translated by Alex Auswaks.The book contains 7 stories, two written by P. Orlovetz and 5 stories by P. Nitikin. These stories were written in the around 1905 - 1910, in what were the equivalent of "penny dreadfuls" in Russia. These stories were not authorized and were published without regard to copyright protection at that time.

When I first bought the book, I imagined it was going to contain modern pastiches from a modern Russia. Instead, I read seven stories that reflect the Russian society of the early 20th century. And that has a certain fascination. Of course, there is also the confusion of how Russians name themselves that anyone who has read "War and Peace" is familiar with. But as a long time reader I have learned to ignore such literary distractions and still enjoy what is presented.

The Sherlock Holmes and Dr. Watson that appears in these stories are not your usual characters - they are oddly flavored in not fully realized charicatures. While still recognizable, I have never read a Holmes story before where Sherlock Holmes is so willing to receive a fee...

The book is readable and the stories have their moments - twice a story ends with Holmes disappearing in a river. These are not great stories, though, and if you are looking for great pastiches, buy some other book first. For Sherlock Holmes collectors, though, you will not mind having this in your library.

The Rating:  ... This book has a rating of 3 "Pipes." Readers will enjoy the stories, if they look at the book as a collection of Sherlockian oddities, rather than being great stories.

More information from Amazon:

Sherlock Holmes in Russia

Thanks to the Sherlockian historian George Piliev and translator Alex Auswaks, this remarkable collection of seven Russian Sherlock Holmes stories is now available in English for the first time. Piliev tells the fascinating story of how these tales came to be written, in the context of the Sherlockian phenomenon in Russia. He explains how Holmes reached an even greater audience when Russian writers decided to transport him and Watson from Baker Street to Russia, on the premise that they traveled widely in the country and became fluent in the language.

Sherlock Holmes and Dr. Watson traveled the length of Russia solving the most difficult and unimaginable cases and pursued all the while by an implacable Russian Moriarty. Instead of mainly dealing with murders, these stories are more diverse, covering kidnapping, a strange problem in a shop, theft, and corruption.
