Stock and flow / Snarkmarket
But I actually think stock and flow is the master metaphor for media today. Here’s what I mean: Flow is the feed. Stock is the durable stuff.

How to Save Your iPhone 4S' Crappy Battery
The 4S battery situation is a little weird! It's got a slightly higher capacity than the iPhone 4 (5.3 WHrs versus 5.25), yet Apple gives it a worse battery life prediction. Why? For one, it's got a dual core processor, but there's also a ton of software action going on that's taxing your battery, hard. Use these tweaks to squeeze the most life out of your battery.

Why Valve? Or, what do we need corporations for and how does Valve’s management structure fit into today’s corporate world? | Valve
You have read Valve’s survival manual for new employees. You have read Michael Abrash’s wonderful account of working at Valve. Now read my political economy analysis of Valve’s management model; one in which there are no bosses, no delegation, no commands, no attempt by anyone to tell someone what to do. Can useful lessons be drawn about not only Valve’s inner workings but, importantly, regarding the future of the corporate world?

Retina MacBook Pro: maximizing battery life with gfxCardStatus | Ars Technica
But we've been using the Retina MacBook Pro a little more since our review published a couple of weeks ago, and have discovered that the massive 95Whr battery is actually capable of lasting at least 8 hours or more. To achieve this, we overrode Apple's automatic graphics switching using the donation-ware app gfxCardStatus to force OS X to rely solely on Intel's integrated HD4000 GPU.

The Economics of Seinfeld
Seinfeld ran for nine seasons on NBC and became famous as a “show about nothing.” Basically, the show allows viewers to follow the antics of Jerry, George, Elaine, and Kramer as they move through their daily lives, often encountering interesting people or dealing with special circumstances.

It is the simplicity of Seinfeld that makes it so appropriate for use in economics courses. Using these clips (as well as clips from other television shows or movies) makes economic concepts come alive, making them more real for students. Ultimately, students will start seeing economics everywhere – in other TV shows, in popular music, and most importantly, in their own lives.

We hope that you find these clips valuable and would appreciate your feedback.

What Happened to Yahoo
When I went to work for Yahoo after they bought our startup in 1998, it felt like the center of the world. It was supposed to be the next big thing. It was supposed to be what Google turned out to be. What went wrong? The problems that hosed Yahoo go back a long time, practically to the beginning of the company. They were already very visible when I got there in 1998. Yahoo had two problems Google didn't: easy money, and ambivalence about being a technology company.

cortesi - Elinor Ostrom, the commons problem and Open Source
It's interesting to consider how this line of thought applies to Open Source projects. Software is not a classical common pool resource, because it's not subtractable - there's no cost to the users or developers of a project if I choose to use it. Nonetheless, an Open Source project is definitely a commons, in the sense that it is a community resource that thrives or starves depending on contributions from its members.

Brazil: Brazil takes off | The Economist
WHEN, back in 2003, economists at Goldman Sachs bracketed Brazil with Russia, India and China as the economies that would come to dominate the world, there was much sniping about the B in the BRIC acronym. Brazil? Now that scepticism looks misplaced. China may be leading the world economy out of recession but Brazil is also on a roll.
