Friday assorted links

1. Can robots keep humans from abusing other robots?

2. “A German university is offering “idleness grants” to applicants who are seriously committed to doing sweet nothing.”  Is this news?  Why don’t they at least make them walk some dogs?

3. NYT covers Donald J. Harris, economist.

4. More on Oumuamua.

5. Are older, more classic books less likely to be manipulating you?  And is that good or bad?
