…beleaguered by the same

negation and despair,

show an affirming flame.

A collection of things that I was happy I read. Views expressed by linked authors are chosen because I think they're interesting, not because I think they're correct, unless indicated otherwise.

Blog: Marginal Revolution | The importance of local milieus — "We find suggestive evidence that co-locating with future inventors may impact the probability of becoming an inventor. The most consistent effect is found for place of higher education; some positive effects are also evident from birthplace, whereas no consistent positive effect can be derived from individuals’ high school location."

Blog: Shtetl-Optimized | How to upper-bound the probability of something bad — an algorithmist's guideline.

A Bag Full of Books, a Cache Full of Blogs

I'm leaving on a cruise for spring break, and so will effectively be without Internet until Sunday, March 23. I don't plan to update Faults in that time, though I do hope to get some writing done and have some things to post when I get back.

Fiction

  • A Wizard Alone, Diane Duane (Young Wizards: VI)
  • A Wizard's Holiday, Diane Duane (Young Wizards: VII)
  • Wizards at War, Diane Duane (Young Wizards: VIII)
  • The Eternal Flame, Greg Egan (Orthoganal: II)
  • The Little Prince, Antoine
