An introduction

This is a semi-public place to dump text too flimsy to even become a blog post. I wouldn't recommend reading it unless you have a lot of time to waste. You'd be better off at my livejournal. I also have another blog, and write most of the French journal summaries at the Eurozine Review.

Why do I clutter up the internet with this stuff at all? Mainly because I'm trying to get into the habit of displaying as much as possible of what I'm doing in public. Also, Blogger is a decent interface for a notebook

Trade secrets

I've just been reading an ancient JK Galbraith book. True to Galbraith's reputtion, it's packed with little facts and asides. I particularly love the British companies formed in the early 18th century, including one "for carrying on an undertaking of great advantage, but nobody to know what it is" [p.43]
