UKC News - Mt Hunter North Buttress Solo by Colin Haley
"The Alps are much more awesome mountains than what is available in the contiguous US, but still they aren't really serious mountains at all in comparison to Alaska or the Himalaya, or even Patagonia. While there is lots of badass stuff you can do in the Alps in the realm of hard free-climbing, or speed ascents, there is nothing to do in the alps that is really significant in modern alpinism, in my opinion. However, the Alps, and particularly Chamonix, are simply the best place to get tons of da...

Notes on “Notes on Cost Disease” - The American Interest
Some possible explanations Scott Alexander missed:

- cost-pull progress
- industries where capital can't be easily substituted for labour
- increases in numbers of people required to do a job (eg non-teaching positions have greatly increased in number)
- entry of women into the workforce in the 1960s
- transactional costs, especially the plague of lawyers

Links 5/17: Rip Van Linkle | Slate Star Codex
The Empire is long gone, but its mark has reached so far. I look at an uppercase screed in a dirty bathroom in Brazil and think of the Trajan column, and wow it still looks pretty much the same. Five hundred years ago this was a jungle rich in biodiversity and freedom and now that the hand of Progress worked its magic, it’s brick and pollution and Rome. And it’s such a great, rational writing system. I mean sure, the alphabetic principle is due the Greeks, but that’s the point; the Empire takes; the Empire is not a petty, weak little thing like the Nation, it doesn’t want homogeneity or purity, but on the contrary it wants the Other within its borders, paying tribute, submitting; once the Greek were made to bent the knee, the entirety of Greek culture belonged to the Empire, even the Greek Gods belonged to the Empire (as did the Zoroastrian Gods, the Egyptian Gods et cetera). And, in spirit at least, Rome still conquers; most undocumented languages, when documented, are now given a notation in Roman writing. The more languages use it, the more incentive is there to adopt it for even more languages. imperium sine fine dedi. Urbi et orbi. SPQR.

The Clinton comedy of errors
Vision, authenticity, strategy. You need to have clear sense of what you want to do and why you want to do it. You need to show people that you mean it and believe in it. And you need to have an idea of how to get from here to there. The Clinton campaign had no vision, was inauthentic, and botched its strategy.
