I found an excellent blog post discussing the shortcomings of much of the economic field. Definitely worth a read.
Additionally, a nice post off Hacker News about Steve Jobs and Apple. While I do like many of Apple’s products, their culture always seemed a bit counter to the open and collaborative culture of the internet. This discussion of Steve Jobs helps explain why. Of course, it’s important to mention that Steve Jobs is extraordinarily accomplished and incredible, but his leadership came with a price.
Finally, my post from yesterday was published in the Chronicle! it’s my first publicized work in a newspaper.
