Friday assorted links

1. Anonymous and pseudonymous inventions other than Bitcoin.

2. Bhaven N. Sampat long NBER survey paper on evidence on patents and copyright.  I won’t get to read this soon, but it looks very useful.

3. “When young sailors need a minor course correction, he said, instead of ordering a spell in the brig, he often orders them to write reports on works by authors like Patrick Henry or Ayn Rand.”  (NYT)

4. Data on founders of billion-dollar start-ups.

5. Why is Serbia a nation but Karnataka not?  Recommended.

6. Is loneliness rising?
