3. Gavin Leech surveys the “insane” who have blogged a lot and for a long time.

4. Robin Hanson isn’t afraid (with Richard Hanania).

5. “Can we improve how we identify and develop mathematical talent among youth? With generous support from @AgencyFund, we’re excited to launch a new one-year dissertation fellowship for up to four PhD students in economics or economics-adjacent fields on this topic.”  From Heidi Williams.

6. A report on Próspera, by Próspera.
