Friday assorted links

1. What is wrong with Gödel, Escher, Bach: An Eternal Golden Braid?

2. Excellent Jennifer Szalai review of the new Martha Nussbaum book (NYT).

3. How Michael Nielsen reads and records papers.  “Avoid orphan questions.”  Many of the best parts are later in the essay.

4. Differing opinions on whether behavioral economics is overrated or underrated.

5. Try giving up air conditioning.  In fact I did this for years (in Virginia), and on a reasonably high income.  I was fine with it, and regarded it as a healthier way to live.

6. AOC and the evolution of Thomas Mann.
