- Is winner-take-all bad or good for the middle class? Evidence from baseball: Lane Kenworthy breaks down job creation, middle class employment and the rising tides theory using baseball statistics. You might be surprised where this ends up.
- Google Places and Hotpot Come to iPhone, Google Maps: Sean Kernick has a lovely photo set featuring Jason de Caires Taylor’s underwater landscapes.
