The University of Wisconsin Alumni magazine just ran an excerpt of The Red Market. It's oddly gratifying to have a bit of recognition from my alma mater. http://onwisconsin.uwalumni.com/features/black-gold/

I just started to use Byliner to follow my favorite magazine and feature writers. The database isn't comprehensive yet, but with the best freelance writers publishing all over the place this simplifies the process of finding their stuff. You can also mark something to read later and it will save the piece to your kindle. Great stuff. Some of my stories are up there. Follow if you like. 

Other people I'd recommend following on Byliner: Joshua Davis, Evan Ratliff, C.J. Chivers, Jon Krakauer, Sebastian Junger, William Langewiesche, James Verini

Google+ is better than Facebook. So why don't I use it?

I posted this to my Facebook profile in September 2011: http://blogs.telegraph.co.uk/news/damianthompson/100093915/the-killer-charts-that-show-facebook-really-could-be-dying/.

Some of my friends criticized the analysis. My response:

"Haha! Good responses, both of you. I have a gut feeling Facebook is peaking and will soon be (or already is) in decline. But I can also see why the data and methods they used here aren't very persuasive."

118,541 people have been murdered in Venezuela since 1999. That's the highest murder rate in the world--dwarfing Iraq casualties. And about twice the number killed in the Mexican drug war. To combat the problem Chavez's government has banned newspapers from publishing photos of murder victims. http://www.nytimes.com/2010/08/23/world/americas/23venez.html

I would love to compare this to the Washington D.C. of my youth, where all the jobs were crony jobs and the police were wholey incapable of stoping the violence.

More than a year in the making, my story in Playboy about Wim Hof and his incredibly ability to take control of his autonomic immune system is finally online. Click over and see me with my shirt off in the pages of the most famous skin mag ever.

I had an existential moment today when I came across this old picture of me from a the University of Wisconsin website describing what would have been my Ph.D. dissertation.  It was like I was staring into a parallel universe of what might have been. 

"Scott Carney (Ph D Candidate, Department of Anthropology) is currently preparing for a field project to explore the links between elite producers of Indian music television in Bombay and middle class television viewers in Jaipur. His dissertation is tentatively titled “Youth Consumption and the Production of Indian Mass Media." This year Scott started the AnthroCircle Spring Seminar series to showcase outstanding student work in Anthropology."

My collegues from RISC training in New York, David McDougall and Niklas Meltio's are on assignment to the front lines in Syria, shadowing snipers, surviving mortar attacks and skulking around packed hospital casualty wards. Now they might be facing chemical attacks by the Asad regime. 

In contrast, on my last assignment I met the Mumbai literati, traveled on the new Delhi metro and learned to surf in Gokarna. I'm humbled, and yet, slightly relieved. 

See Niklas's pictures here:

Just for the record: The secret to curing writers block lies in a simple kitchen egg timer.  Check out the pomodoro technique if you are having trouble focusing. http://www.pomodorotechnique.com/

What don't you understand about clinical trials? A guest poster on Scientific American --- and a clinical medical researcher --- is putting together a series of posts that she hopes will inspire more people to participate in clinical trial programs. You should share your thoughts with her at: http://blogs.scientificamerican.com/guest-blog/2011/10/06/molecules-to-medicine-clinical-trials-for-beginners/
