Links I liked

  1. John McPhee has a great series on writing in The New Yorker, after five decades there. This week’s, on structure, the best so far.
  2. Salon reviews David Jacobsen’s new book on globalization and the battle for control of women’s bodies
  3. Patricia Marx introduces me to several local outsourcing services I may use in future, not least of which is Task Rabbit
  4. Stumbled on interesting articles on the politics of property rights and sociology of property rights and development. They are gated. Links to ungated versions welcome in the comments.
