A week of links

Again, closer to a month of links:

  1. A great set of essays triggered by David Dobbs’s assault on the selfish gene.
  2. Tim Harford on big data. His piece on behavioural economics is also worth reading. Take the hype with a grain of salt.
  3. The Greg Clark show continues – an interview on Social Science bites, a presentation at the RSA and some thoughts by Greg Cochran.
  4. Charles Murray has a new book on its way – The Curmudgeon’s Guide to Getting Ahead: Dos and Don’ts of Right Behavior, Tough Thinking, Clear Writing, and Living a Good Life
  5. A good long-read on de-extinction.
  6. Free-range kids.
