What’s past, what’s new

What I’ve scribbled last week and will scrawl for this week.

Last week

Stuff scribbled:

Reading matter that stood out:

  1. Because money matters: Sanofi-Aventis (“because health matters”) buys up Genzyme to position itself for the market in drugs for genetic diseases.
  2. If it ever becomes a real currency, the Bitcoin will be the perfect blank slate for speculators.
  3. Make up your bloody minds if we’ve got eight or nine planets.
  4. Someone articulately debunks the “follow the money” myth.
  5. Probably the best advice ever given on manners.
  6. One reason why Dixie chicks kick ass and the rest aren’t.
  7. The latest thought-provoking post from an very clearminded ex-callgirl.
  8. Another running-round-in-circles post from a linguist: let me know if you can figure out the post.
  9. Ed Hurst writes about the limits of knowing: we’re such lusers.
  10. See for yourself why the 1970 Ford Mustang is a damn sight better looking than its 2011 version.

The others were good (since I subscribe to good blogs) — just that they didn’t pique my interest last week.

Sometime this week

  • 6 ways corporate vultures profit from our suffering
  • American management philosophy is the norm today, unfortunately
  • 6 ways corporations and political parties deal with opponents

Next week (Week 9)

Let’s get through those three above first, shall we?

And, yeah, I promise to write shorter this time around!
