"One less guard on the wall"

William Jacobson notes that independent conservative bloggers are going away. (Link via Instapundit.)

Independent conservative bloggers are a dying breed, I’m sorry to say.  They either burnout, or they join an established website.

Yet the walls still have to be guarded by independent bloggers who bear a greater responsibility than you could possibly fathom, and while grotesque and incomprehensible to you, you want us on that wall, you need us on that wall.


But hey, I'm still here.

Good blog title

"Punk Rock Operations Research".

Some entertaining posts, too. Examples:

"what operations research has taught me about parenthood".

"how to (optimally) prepare for a zombie outbreak".

And via a link from one of her posts, "Scientific Peer Review, ca. 1945".

"YouTube millionaires"

"Hundreds of YouTube stars are making more than six figures, and hundreds more are making more than $40,000 a year -- roughly the median salary in the US. There are even stars who have topped a million dollars, although the company wouldn't say how many."

"Spotify leaps to US"

Spotify--aka the Celestial Jukebox--is supposedly coming to the U.S. Real soon now. We've heard this before. But if true, it would be great for music lovers.

A newish blog to support the forthcoming book, Spousonomics: Using Economics to Master Love, Marriage, and Dirty Dishes. Here, co-author Jenny Anderson interviews economist Daniel Hamermesh.

What’s the most important lesson economics has taught you about your own marriage?

It has taught me the role of compromise. To quote a song by Diamond Rio, “We’ll gain a lot of ground ‘cause we’ll both give a little, Ain’t no road too long, if you meet in the middle.” It has also taught me to think about the subtleties of comparative advantage and to recognize that preferences matter too.  To wit:  I earn about twice as much per hour as my wife; and she’s a much better cook than I am.  Yet I do much of the cooking, because my schedule is more flexible, so that the cost to me of getting dinner on the table at a reasonable time is lower than it would be to her.

Here, she answers "What's the point of marriage?".

The 2010 election is so . . . yesterday. What about 2012?

Someone to watch: Marco Rubio.

Kevin Williamson offers a 2012 Palin administration suggestions for top positions. Chairman of the CEA? Why none other than Tyler Cowen of Marginal Revolution

I'd support that but only if Tyler shared the chair with his co-blogger, coauthor, and colleague, Alex Tabarrok. To do otherwise would be the biggest injustice since the Nobel was awarded to just James Buchanan instead of jointly to Buchanan and Tullock.
