Here’s some stuff I’ve had open in Chrome for a while, and want to close before we go out of town for the weekend:
— Speaking of quantifying things, this New York Times piece on metrics is less stupid than I expected. Which is about as high as praise is likely to get for op-eds on this subject.
— FQXI wants your physics videos.
— I was going to dump in some links from the ongoing argument about philosophy and physics, but one of the principal sites is 404-ing right now. Probably for the best. I’ll just close all those tabs and try to let it go.
— Jamie Hyneman gave a commencement speech a few years ago, and it’s very good. As you would expect.
And there’s a partial list of stuff that I’ve been reading, but wasn’t moved enough by to write a whole blog post about.
