  1. Dotcode’s bookmarks tagged with “scrolling” on

    A handy collection. For some reason (some) clients and (some) designers are the only people in the world who can’t work scrollbars.

  2. Cool Tool: Best home chemistry lab book

    Sounds like fun! In theory. In reality I never used the chemistry set I had as a kid much, so maybe not.

  3. Times Higher Education - All the privileged must have prizes

    About teaching at Harvard and the sense of entitlement the kids there have. (via Kottke)

  4. The American Scholar - The Disadvantages of an Elite Education - By William Deresiewicz

    Great measured rant about what Ivy League educated kids are missing out on. (via Kottke)

  5. Seth’s Blog: Advice for authors

    More advice for when you’re having a book published.

  6. Secrets of book publishing I wish I had known - Good Experience

    Nice clear description of having a book published. Even if you have a publisher, you’re on your own. (via Kottke)

  7. Economics of POW Camp

    Fascinating description of the bartering network in World War II Prisoner of War camps. (via Kottke)

    Being in Paris doing nothing is very nice, but I feel a bit out of it and that I should be at home near the roundabout with everyone else.

    31 degrees is officially too hot to do anything remotely active. Going to sit in Parisian shade and read until the day cools off.
