‘The Black Swan: The Impact of the Highly Improbable’ - New York Times - First chapter of Nassim Taleb's new book. I'm in the middle of it now, recommendation at the moment, read this chapter, but buy his first book not this one. He's got one seriously important idea, but his writing leaves something to be desired, and it's not getting better...

Profiting from the Virginia Shooting, the news outlets are buying massacre ad words, and Google of course is selling them.... Course it's possible the ad buys are algorithm driven, wouldn't be surprised if the Times has a system of automatically IDing keywords which triggers keyword buying on Google.

Lord of the Ringtones: How Akon became a star. - By Jody Rosen - Slate Magazine Good article on the first true 21st century pop star. The African car thief currently singing with a Senegalese accent over a healthy chunk of the top 40. If he didn't exist William Gibson probably would have had to invent him.
