I currently do coding and product design for a venture backed startup in Cambridge, MA. Like you, I was once a prototypical progressive. I attended high school at [not Andover - MM] and then majored in history at [not Princeton] (graduated 2006). During college I interned on Capitol Hill, volunteered on campaigns, worked in  City Hall etc. Gradually, I observed firsthand the many pathologies of government. Midway through [not Princeton] I taught myself to code and dove into the tech startup world. It's amazing how your perspective on politics changes when you start asking, "How can I start a business to solve this problem?" rather than "How could a government program solve this problem?" That change, along with numerous Navrozov moments, soured me on both the university and progressivism.You see the grade of young minds we're corrupting here at UR. Quality over quantity. If Lex gives you any trouble, however, you can address him derisively as "Princeton."
I think I first found your blog last February when someone submitted your post about the financial crisis to programming.reddit. I followed your links and started reading Rothbard and DeSoto, plus Hoppe, Leoni, Szabo, Sailer, Stefan Zweig, Grand Duke Alexander, etc.. It's been a fascinating trip. So thank you!
Material that has been vetted by the scholarly community is regarded as reliable; this means published in peer-reviewed sources, and reviewed and judged acceptable scholarship by the academic journals.Here at UR, we refer to these fine institutions collectively as the Cathedral. Note that La Wik does not stoop to filling us in as to why we should believe the Cathedral. It is simply infallible, like the Vatican. Om mane padme hum. "Trust the computer. The computer is your friend."
Material from mainstream news organizations is welcomed, particularly the high-quality end of the market, such as The Washington Post, The Times in Britain, and The Associated Press.
String theory is pathological science.To support this claim, the prosecutor then composes a statement. The statement should be short, but no shorter than necessary. It explains all the logic and facts necessary to understand the connection between Oswald and the Templars, or other revisionist argument.
Floyd Landis is a clean, upstanding young man.
America would be a better place without [ethnic group].
Emacs is a more powerful editor than vi.
Lee Harvey Oswald was a stooge of the Knights Templars.
