What's it called when by reporting on something you end up disrupting the very thing that you're reporting on? Heisenberg's uncertainy principle of journalism? No matter. On an unrelated note, Shawn Morton claims to have discovered a method to move selections on your Netflix queue from "very long/long wait" immediately to "shipping." Morton says that by removing all of the movies except for the very long/long titles from his list, he has twice succeeded in getting films to quickly move categories; he believes that the Netflix software feels it must send you something, so presumably your greed may be screwing over some other more-deserving movie lover whose choice was rerouted. Either way, as everyone passes this little tip around online and by word-of-mouth, if this "hack" really does work it probably won't for very long.
