The To-Be-Blogged Pile
As the semester draws to a close, I’ll be adding a couple features to my blogging here. First, there’s always a big pile of stuff each week I’d like to blog on, but don’t get around to. So I’ll just post links to the articles, ala Tyler Cowen. Second, I’ll be trying to do a series on art & politics this season. Having lamented the press repeatedly, I think I owe it to readers to comment on people who are thinking more creatively about the political scene. . . including Kenneth Tin-Kin Hung, Timothy Donnelly, MIA, and Paul Chan. Without further adieu:
1. Have a tough time memorizing things? Check out this software program by Piotr Wozniak (which I’m definitely consulting if I try to re-learn Spanish).
2. Patrick S. O’Donnell both comments incisively on the food crisis and rounds up posts from around the blawgosphere. O’Donnell and Paul Horwitz have an interesting discussion on sustainability here. My own take would begin by comparing an article on the new living standards of very poor persons, and one on a “Club Med for Dogs.”
4. Yale U. Press leads the way in opening access to books on internet topics. [Full disclosure: they do advertise here.]
Have a great weekend.
