The Day Today - January 16th 2008

A little something on why Jared Diamond is wrong - "No one visits Stonehenge, she noted, and asks whatever happened to the English."

If you feel like a good read. .. Resource Exhaustibility A Myth Refuted by Entrepreneurial Capital Maintenance.

An interesting diversion from Andrew Sullivan on testosterone, long enough for a lunch break.

Something I missed late last year, Jacques Barzun turned 100. The book mentioned"From Dawn to Decadence" is, incidentally, an excellent read but since holidays are over (unless you are a teacher) it might pay to leave it untill next Christmas. I do so love my big-picture theorising, probably too much testosterone and an abiliy to concentrate on the details.

Finally, if you've read all that, you can go for a walk.
