Conformity, anonymity, ways of disagreeing, black money, extreme segregation, Obama poster


  1. David Berreby defends conformity.
  2. Three academics discuss the advantages of anonymity on the web.
  3. Swaminathan Aiyar thinks that black money saved India's financial sector.
  4. Paul Graham has a taxonomy of ways of disagreeing on the web.
  5. Krish Ashok on the ill effects of extreme segregation in Sathyabama Deemed University and many other private engineering colleges in Chennai (and perhaps all of Tamil Nadu).
  6. Krish Ashok has two fictional characters deconstructing the US elections; one of them suggests a better poster for the Obama campaign.

    Jillu Madrasi: Agreed. Let it be resolved that Krish Ashok is the Ramesh Mahadevan of this century!
