Random scholarship links while we wait for real news


We all want to know the latest developments in the struggle against pizza merchants.  I have seen numerous posts of unconfirmed hearsay this weekend. I do not want to run such rumors as if they were news; RUMINT is not HUMINT.

I don’t much like the WSJ, but the economics of office space should be considered while fools panic about propagandized pseudo-crises:

History reminds us that the early days of the Industrial Revolution began with people doing commercial work from home. Since then, we have been remarkably, some might say stubbornly, committed to the idea that work should be centered at the office, even when it could have been done remotely. We invested huge amounts of money in office real estate equipped to help us be efficient. We also asked employees to spend lots of time and money traveling to those offices.
