Thursday assorted links

1. “Work on things that aren’t prestigious.”

2. Patricia Lockwood on Ferrante.

3. How to get cancelled in Iceland, alternatively what not to look for in your supermarket’s PR director.

4. What do jobless men do all day?  And the undermotivated apostate.

5. Vitalik on prediction markets, smart contract risk, epistemic humility, and more.  Like most Vitalik, it is too good to excerpt.

6. Ezra Klein on work and child allowances (NYT).  I agree with some but not all of this, in any case it is already obvious how much Ezra is in the very top tier of NYT columnists after only a few pieces.  Every part of it is an actual argument, supported by evidence of some kind or another.
