THANK YOU. THANK YOU LOUIS BRANDY

The more interesting aspect is absolute certainty that nerds talk about things like the Federal Reserve. It’s not like other topics. In, for example, discussions about finer points of the x86 architecture, you’ll find a bunch of nerds happily discussing what they know and happily learning from others. But in a discussion of economics? Oh, no. Everyone is a fucking expert. Every, single, person in the discussion is an expert. Except, of course, they aren’t. None of them are.

'economists who support Keynesian spending programs in theory tend to overlook the self-interested behavior of the politicians who must spend all the money in practice.'

Edmund Burke - Congress Could Learn a LOT

Average: 3 (2 votes)

To deliver an opinion, is the right of all men; that of constituents is a weighty and respectable opinion, which a representative ought always to rejoice to hear; and which he ought always most seriously to consider. But authoritative instructions; mandates issued, which the member is bound blindly and implicitly to obey, to vote, and to argue for, though contrary to the clearest conviction of his judgment and conscience,--these are things utterly unknown to the laws of this land, and which arise from a fundamental mistake of the whole order and tenor of our constitution.

Chris Anderson and Media Evolution (Video @ Bottom)

Average: 4 (7 votes)

Wednesday I attended Media Evolution and it was a lot of fun. The reason I went was to see Chris Anderson, editor-in-chief of WIRED magazine, speak. It was interesting to hear him speak, mainly about his new book Free which is about everything digital going to cost basically nothing and how business can take advantage of this and continue to make money.
