  4. A long-read Q&A with Cesar Hidalgo, author of ‘Why Information Grows’ | American Enterprise Institute - AEI

    Intro to econ classes usually teach students to understand the economy as the combination of labor, capital, and land. But it might be more fruitful to think of the key players as atoms, energy, and information.

  5. Functioning as a Functionalist

    Andy Matuschak, Functional Swift Conference, December 2014

    Swift makes it easier than ever to apply functional paradigms to your codebase. But you’re working with a platform—and perhaps an old codebase—which are completely procedural. Your teammates may not have tried functional programming before. If you spout functionalist jargon unprompted in every code review, you’ll create culture clash: you can’t give someone an answer to a question they haven’t asked.

  8. Andy Matuschak on Books and Learning - Econlib

    Software Engineer Andy Matuschak talks about his essay "Why Books Don’t Work" with EconTalk host Russ Roberts. Matuschak argues that most books rely on transmissionism, the idea that an author can share an idea in print and the reader will absorb it. And yet after reading a non-fiction book, most readers will struggle to remember any of the ideas in the book. Matuschak argues for a different approach to transmitting ideas via the web including different ways that authors or teachers can test for understanding that will increase the chances of retention and mastery of complex ideas.

    Then, he worked at Khan Academy where he led and co-founded the Research & Development group. In this conversation, we talk about the structure of online education, my online writing course, how to take notes, strategies for developing new ideas over time, secrets of creative partnerships, and what it means to do creative work.
