46th Selected Links

1 min read

Happy weekend! Here are some links to things I've been reading that you might also enjoy:

1. The best thing I've read all week: Andy Matuschak on taking evergreen notes. I highly recommend his other writings. Hat tip to Pete Hartree for introducing Matuschak's work to me.

2. 'Purchase Fuzzies and Utilons Separately', a 2009 blog post by Eliezer Yudkowsky.

3. Shuping Shi and Peter Phillips' housing bubble dashboard for Australia.

4. Gish gallop, a debating tactic I've encountered many a time without realising it had a name. I look forward to properly calling it out next time I'm receiving a gish galloping.

5. 'China's six wars in the next 50 years', a 2013 blog post by Geoff Wade.

6. Sum, by David Eagleman. This is the first work of fiction I've finished in a long time — loved it. Hat tip to Russ Roberts for the recommendation. It's a collection of forty very short, speculative and mutually exclusive accounts of the afterlife. Here's an excerpt featuring one of them.

Have a great weekend,
