I’ll be posting a linklog once a week, from now on. This is actually the second for this week, as I’m tweaking my script a bit, but in the future it should happen only once a week.
- Why We Banned Legos – Rethinking Schools Online
- Not what I expected. A fascinating microcosm of politics, economics, social norming, the rule of law, and the power of despots. It’d make a great basis for a book or a PhD.
- Scott Klarr: Ruby and Ruby on Rails cheat sheets
- Good collection
- Next Generation Discovery: New Tools, Aging Standards
- Interesting conference at U North Carolia (Chapel Hill), March 27-28
- ‘Boring’ Websites That Make Incredible Money With AdSense
- AdSense has created a whole new economic system. What legal protections should people have against Google changing its algorithms (which might make them rich, or pauper them)? It’s natural to say “diversify”, but Google has a near-monolopy here.
- Interview with John Gruber: A Mix of the Technical, the Artful, the Thoughtful, and the Absurd
- Insights on interviewing, writing, and blogging
- Paul Graham: The Age of the Essay
- Informative and original essay about writing and education
- [On writing] John Gruber, Paul Graham, Joel Spolsky, and Judge Judy – (37signals)
- Excerpts some choice bits from the Gruber and Graham pieces linked above, if you’re in a hurry
- xkcd – “someone is _wrong_ on the Internet!”
- Unfortunately, I can empathize with this desire
- They’re Working on Their Own, Just Side by Side – New York Times
- Interesting article about coworking spaces, for freelancers who want a commual space
