Innovation Economics, Decentralized Prediction Markets, Front-End Build Tools, and CS Debates
- Innovation Through the Holmstrom Lens — [Nobel Prize-winner] Holmstrom’s work has provided me with a great deal of understanding of why innovation management looks the way it does. (via Marginal Revolution)
- Augur — decentralized prediction markets.
- Making Sense of Front-End Build Tools — Build tools do two things: Install things; do things. The first question to ask yourself when confronting a new build tool is: “Is this tool intended to install things for me, or do things for me?”
- Vigorous Public Debates in Computer Science — The purpose of this post is to list a collection of public debates in academic computer science where there is genuine and heartfelt disagreement among intelligent and accomplished researchers.
