for something we won't have, so somebody will someday.

IN WHICH Ross Rheingans-Yoo—an artist, economist, poet, trader, ex-pat, EA, and programmer—oc­cas­ion­al­ly writes on things of int­erest.

Blog: Marginal Revolution | A social credit system for scientists? — Chinese scientists, that is, and fraudsters at that. What, would you rather be soft on fraud?

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. (This is a minor lie; I've got one more post to push out the door later today.)

But, the prospect of being a week without things to read being approximately as appealing as vacationing in the Third Circle of Hades, I'm bringing substantial reading material along. And, because I have a blog and an itch for publicy, here's my reading list (or at least, my carrying-along-like-a-comfort-blanket list):


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 de Saint-ExupĂ©ry
  • Snow Crash, Neil Stephenson

Poetry

  • The Oldest Word for Dawn, Brad Leithauser
  • destruction myth, Mathias Svalina
  • Selected Poems
