  3. The Price Of Bias

    We may think of our independent press today as being the result of political awakening and noble efforts by those seeking truth, but that’s not the whole story. University of Chicago economist, Matthew Gentzkow, says we’ve progressed not just because of good intentions, but because of basic economics. Gentzkow explains how advances in printing helped newspapers expand their audience beyond just one political party.

  6. E52 – Interview with Eric Meyer – Part 2

    Eric says that accessibility "“is a foundational principle of the web. Like literally the web is built on accessibility. The original specs don’t necessarily call it that, but that’s an organizing principle of the web. And to try to ignore it or overcome it is a lot like trying to paddle upstream”."

  10. Chris D. Thomas: Are We Initiating The Great Anthropocene Speciation Event? - The Long Now

    The bad news (not news to most): Many wild species are under severe duress.

    The good news (total news to most): “Nature is thriving in an age of extinction.”

    Ecologist and evolutionary biologist Chris Thomas has examined a little-noticed phenomenon around the world, that as an unintentional byproduct of massive human impact, biodiversity is increasing in pretty much every region of the world. Evolution has sped up. Wild populations are on the move, sometimes in response to climate change, often hitch-hiking on us. Hybridization is rampant, leading at times to whole new species. The Anthropocene, evidently, is a mass speciation event.

    An ardent conservationist, Thomas makes the case that conservation efforts are far more effective when we acknowledge—and study— what nature is really up to, and work with it.

    Chris Thomas is a professor in the Department of Biology at the University of York in England and author of Inheritors of the Earth: How Nature Is Thriving in an Age of Extinction (02017).
