Thursday assorted links

1. Paul Simon and Malcolm Gladwell collaboration.

2. Farhad Manjoo sanity about Instagram (NYT).

3. Is Wang Huning the world’s most important public intellectual?

4. Average guy vs. 100 mph fastballs.  What is the meta-lesson here?

5. The importance of rare gene variants for autism.

6. We are winning the war on oil spills.

7. Freddie on Ross.  I tend to side with Ross, but still a good piece.

8. NYT covers Human Challenge Trials — amazing how lame is the quoted response of the biomedical establishment.
