Around the Intertubes: June 13, 2011

1. Exciting things about Tim Pawlenty.

2. Using Go to understand Chinese strategic thinking. This idea has its uses, but let’s heed James Holmes’s advice, and not take it too far. Let’s also concede the point made in the article that there are plenty of situations in which Chinese policy has been rash and impulsive, not patient and wise, a point made on this blog more than a few times.

3. Note to self: Chug lots of water, then work on investment portfolio, win the FIDE World Chess Championship, and plan the conquest of the world. (Via Freakonomics.)

4. Intelligence is bliss.

5. Philosophy trends. I wonder if the market for Greek philosophers reached a permanently high plateau long ago. And how fares Nietzsche’s stock?
