Lazy Linking, 39th in an Occasional Series
Stuff I liked lately on the Internets:
39.1. How do you beat the salad bar? Go for the most expensive stuff on a per-ounce basis. My high school buddies reading this are nodding in approval. [Hat tip: Marginal Revolution.]
39.2. I was a little early, but I knew this product would eventually be invented.
39.3. "Egalitarian, merit-based. That came from Noyce. Anyone can speak in a meeting, but you must speak with data. That came from Moore. Take risks, embrace innovation, but do it with discipline. That's Andy Grove. World-class manufacturing came from Craig Barrett. I've added a marketing component." That's a nice summary of five generations of Intel leadership.
39.4. My favorite "Economists in Love" interview so far: Betsey Stevenson and Justin Wolfers.
39.5. These are not your mother's historic preservationists - nowadays you're likely to hear them talk about environmental sustainability, new urbanism, economic stimulus, and tourism.
39.6. "Selling" naming rights to a charity.
39.7. #1 cola? Coke. #2 cola? No, not Pepsi anymore - Diet Coke.
39.8. Experts weigh in on the impact of the return of high gas prices, and whether and how to seize the opportunity to implement sound transportation policy.
39.9. Looking to make your head hurt? Read this article about what the biggest number is. [Hat tip: Big Questions.]
39.10. Caterina Fake says social media is so popular because we all have a fear of missing out. Myers-Briggsians, does this mean we have all become ENFP's?
