I am very interested in all the developments in publishing. This week I found a couple of interesting ones: NPR had this interesting podcast No Ink, No Paper: What’s The Value of an E-Book? And The New York Review of Books has this piece: Publishing: the Revolutionary Future.
The Cato Institute has a stimulating book forum where they discuss: Don’t Blame The Shorts: Why Short Sellers Are Always Blamed for Market Crashes and How History Is Repeating Itself
Reason.com has a feature on glamour: Virginia Postrel: Glamour, Politics, & Voter Expectations.
I liked this Onion feature: Man On Internet Almost Falls Into World Of DIY Mustard Enthusiasts. In their Brief news section they had: Mytron The Fifth, Illuminati Ruler And Secret Overlord Of All Humanity, Dead At 112. And onTwitter they had Bandai Recalls Lady Gaga.
