Weekend Reading & Selected Links

1 min read

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

1. 'The Architecture of Complexity', the classic 1962 essay by Herb Simon.

2. 'Why everyone should pay more attention to India...', Shruti Rajagopalan's inaugural Substack post. Some spectacular facts therein. For example: globally, one in five people below 25 is from India.

3. 'Temporal trends in sperm count: a systematic review and meta-regression analysis of samples collected globally in the 20th and 21st centuries', a recent meta-analysis showing average sperm count globally has fallen ~50% since 1973.

4. 'Are You Practising Science or Managing Science?', a short video of Nobel laureate Sydney Brenner.

Have a great weekend,
