Lazy Linking, 65th in an Occasional Series


What I liked lately on the Internets:

65.1. A double shot from Fortune Magazine - (1) I like how Secretary of State Hillary Clinton is pushing women's rights around the world as a matter of economic growth. (2) Not sure why skipping the checkout line by paying with your mobile phone isn't more mainstream.

65.2. The free parking we viscerally insist on is actually quite expensive. So says Donald Shoup, the topic's guru. [Hat tip: kottke.org.]

65.3. Leave it to those resourceful (and somewhat odd) Japanese to create a car seat that will scan your butt to protect your vehicle from theft.

65.4. How do doctors, who know more about health care than we do, take care of themselves? When it comes to facing death, they choose less treatment, not more.

65.5. For my last link of this post, I give you the entire 2011 year-end issue from Business Week. From good, concise writing to clever infographics, it was just a really good summation of the year and a really fun read from cover to cover.
