LINKED August 5, 2010

  1. This will entertain you
  2. Lust, Devotion and the Binary Code. Well written, superbly plotted piece on sex lives of young Iranians. Contrasts the strict, orthodox state regulations against the much more liberal populace. Will surprise you if you are unaware of how un-conservative much of the Iranian population is; if you are aware, the joy comes from the detail.
  3. Russia Burns
  4. Tell me something I don’t know. Research that makes me question economics, and I don’t mean economic fundamentals but why the economics research is done in the first place. Disclosure: I didn’t read the paper, but it seems like a given.
  5. Tyler Cowen’s IO Course Reading List. I might be the only person interested in this link, but I want to save it somewhere, and this blog is for that. Hey, Ian-Dewbecker is on it.
