reading around

+ Malcolm Gladwell has a new book on the way about how people rise to the top and what it means to be an expert. He talked with the WSJ about it. I'm chasing more expertise links, via Wikipedia, etc. So far...

+ My GoogleReader is really important. I'm not sure what Tumblr is all about, but I found one Tumblr to GoogleRead and it showed me this photo.

+ Investigation into U.S. Air Marshals.
+ The horror of fire is bothering me more lately.
+ DNA evidence is clearing innocent convicts, in some places more than others.

+ Joined a bunch of Flickr groups. I think I'm best holding my own in Things That Look Like Pac Man.
+ An antipodist juggler. Pushing things forward.

+ Cool map. And, thanks to the Hand Drawn Map Association, many amazing maps.

Nice links.

Also, I was just re-reading the statement of beliefs that Ron Paul, Ralph Nader, Cynthia McKinney and Chuck Baldwin signed this year regarding foreign policy, civil liberties, the national debt and the federal reserve.

I know this sounds lame, but I find the combination of the statement's content and authors to be one of the most inspiring things I've seen in a long time in politics.

That photo is awesome...and I like the design of that person's Tumblr.

Also, watched the "In giro per Roma..." video you posted about it was cool.
