Hey +Alex Enders, I read this and immediately thought of the book you wrote.

For anyone else following me, Alex wrote a novelette about this very topic and some of the history behind it. It's a good quick beach read if you've got a dollar to spare.

Some interesting thoughts on what it might take to actually shift the needle on violence in media.  As a long-time gamer, I have a real problem with the knee-jerk railing against video games that always follows violence in the news.  This is something else.

I'd like to claim I'm posting this because it has interesting relevance for both character creation and storytelling but mostly I'm linking it because it's about Batman.

A view from the "data collection is good" side of the fence. As with any tool there are plenty of ways this can be used for evil (which the author does not discuss) but the article covers benefits much more eloquently than I did when I started talking about similar themes in my last blog entry.

Our third bedtime book for Colin is Watership Down by Richard Adams. I forgot what an excellent book this is. I don't know about Colin but Sarah and I are definitely enjoying the bedtime story routine right now.

This article was written by Paul Krugman about 30 years before he won his Nobel prize in economics.  At the time he was an Assistant Professor at Yale and, apparently, a little bored.

Why am I sharing an economics paper from the 70s?  Well, let's just say it's not exactly typical journal fare.  Maybe you should just read it for yourself.  It's called "The Theory of Interstellar Trade"
