Yes, I have chosen to title this post “via,” as it will consist entirely of links that I have ripped off from other bloggers. OK; here we go:
- show and tell with the nobel laureate
- it’s not worth what someone will pay for it, it’s worth what my quants tell me…(pout, pout)
- Paulson 419, subvia TheNation: http://www.thenation.com/blogs/jstreet/363133/bailout_satire
via Bob Sutton
- McKinsey Quarterly on IHI.org’s 100,000 lives campaign …in other words…they did it. 100,000!
- Direct link: http://bobsutton.typepad.com/my_weblog/files/the_ergonomics_of_innovation.pdf
via Google (does that count as a ripoff?)
the financial clusterf*ck noted above is happening at exactly the same time as the art market is bubbling up like never before. consider the following:
- Before: Damien Hirst’s Next Sensation: Thinking Outside the Dealer
- After: After the Roar of the Crowd, an Auction Post-Mortem
- Images of the a few of the works sold
- Summary: Over $200 million in two days of auctions (for some paintings, small sculptures, and gold-implanted preserved animal carcasses). That is so totally reasonable.
