A good article from +The Economist on the ongoing debate to understand what actually caused the financial crisis.
BOTH financiers and economists still get the blame for the 2007-2009 financial crisis: the first group for causing it and the second for not predicting it. As it...

"Working in policymaking is a lot like being a real-life time traveler: It is an inherently forward-looking process in which decisions are made today based on an estimate of what tomorrow might look like." 
Big data show that history does indeed repeat itself. What does that mean for foreign policymaking -- and tackling crises from Ukraine to Syria?

Wash, rinse, repeat.
DISAPPOINTMENT, melodrama, and a faint glimmer of hope. The ingredients of the latest instalment of Argentina’s legal stand-off with its “hold-out” bondholders...

Slides from a talk I gave on Google App Engine this evening. High-level stuff, really. Still nice to talk with folks about developing stuff in the cloud. #googlecloudplatform   #appengine   #googleappengine

A very interesting and insightful post by John Foreman on the Facebook controversy. This passage was particularly poignant, in a post filled with them:

"If I have a bunch of unique people, and I need to target them, I need a bunch of unique content to make that effective. Is there another way?

Rather than tailor marketing content to a user's unique emotional make-up, Facebook has shown that they can use tangentially related (and free!) user-generated content to push a user toward marketing content generated for a more general emotional state: insecure, hungry, lonely, etc. They can edit together photos and posts in a stream to skew a user's view of reality and shift them into one of these compromised emotional states.

In other words, if they can't use data to generate enough personalized content to target people, maybe they can use data to generate vanilla people within a smaller set of emotional states. Once you have a set of vanilla people, then your American Apparel ads will work on them without customization."

This post is a very important one to read. And understand.

FRED is a great site. And they always look for ways to improve it and expand the amount of data they offer. Very cool.
FRED started as a newsletter about inflation. Now it's the go-to source for economic data.

The 4Ds of "Invest-Tech" are a great way to think about how to build a product or company to service the investment management space.

Really neat to read these posts and see how you can use the cloud to do really cool things like this.

Thought provoking, regardless of what you think of the Facebook experiment.

Or, as is becoming more apparent in advertising, strategies based on psychology. Taken further, it shows that you can turn people's public data into a binning exercise; this data says I'm happy, this says I'm cranky, etc. and so we get bucketed/binned.

Of course, the other takeaway is to just stay off Facebook :)

Staff was friendly and responsive. I think the location of the property is also very good with the Ballston Metro close by. My suite was nice and spacious and the bed was trademark Westin Heavenly. I'd recommend this hotel
