Linkblogging For 30/7/14

Posted in Uncategorized by Andrew Hickey on July 30, 2014

A really rather good post by Slate Star Codex on libertarianism, non-self-regulating systems, transhumanism and races to the bottom. Just don’t make the mistake I did of reading the comments — or even worse, of replying to them…

The one good thing in those comments — a link to Design For A Brain by William Ross Ashby as a free ebook

Scalzi on Amazon’s latest comeback in its fight with publishers

Nested — a toy that randomly creates billions of “universes”

Ryan North on gendered pronouns

And Big Finish are doing two-day special deals all month. Today’s has, for £1 each, Omega and Davros (two extremely good Doctor Who audios), Master (a decent one let down by a poor ending), Zagreus (a… less great one), and Dalek Empire Series 2.
