Marginal Revolution

Before the Internet came along, Cowen was many things. New Jersey's 1977 chess champion, for instance. The author of an ethnic dining guide to the Washington area as well as academic papers with snappy titles like "More Monitoring Can Induce Less Effort."

But since he and colleague Alex Tabarrok started the blog Marginal Revolution, which has had more than 6 million visitors, Cowen has become something he didn't even know existed: an economics celebrity.

Thanks to life as an econo-blogger, "I'm invited to give a speech or something at least once a week," Cowen said.

Hi, my name is Jason Kottke. I currently live in Manhattan with my wife Meg and son Ollie. For fun and income, I build web sites and edit My favorite font right now is Whitney by Hoefler & Frere-Jones. Being generally sober, level-headed, and trustworthy, I'm usually the guy who is chosen to drive. One of my favorite things is that, for a moment after you dip your toe in, you can't tell the difference between really hot water and really cold water.

I believe that when people talk about solving problems with technology, what they're usually talking about is solving problems with design...which is to say, the application of psychology in a visual & functional context. I prefer red wine to white, movies to films, jeans to khakis, vanilla to chocolate, Pixar to Dreamworks, the subway to taxis, nonfiction to fiction, and Safari to Firefox. I use a daily face wash in my "T-zone" area. I look like the guy in these photos. I find going to the dentist relaxing. I've lived in WI, IA, MO, MN, CA, NY, NH, and, briefly, France. I don't have a plan.

The Hairpin

Hello and welcome! The Hairpin is a ladies website' run by Edith Zimmerman with Liz Colville, two grave young women who spend all their time online. A hairpin is also a small tool for keeping your hair in place, and a kind of dramatic turn. For more information on those hairpins, stay on this page or slowly click through our entire archive — there's surely something back there to answer your questions.

More about us: The Hairpin is a general-interest blog, meaning we'll be linking to the stories of the day that appeal to us, from politics to makeup to the whereabouts of penis-shaped rainclouds, and is a ladies site insofar as it is run by women, will feature writing by women (although guys should feel free to get at us if they see a place for themselves), and will be mostly read by women. In addition to commentary on the day's offerings, we'll also feature original content from our contributors, in the form of text, video, illustration, and maybe even media that hasn't been invented yet.


The Awl

The Awl intends to encourage a daily discussion of the issues of the day—news, politics, culture (and TV!)—during sensible hours of the working week.

We believe that there is a great big Internet out there on which we all live, and that too often the curios and oddities of that Internet are ignored in favor of the most obvious and easy stories. We believe that there is an audience of intelligent readers who are poorly served by being delivered those same stories in numbing repetition to the detriment of their reading diet. We believe that there is no topic unworthy of scrutiny, so long that it is approached from an intelligent angle, but that there are many topics worthy of scrutiny that lack coverage because of commercial factors. We believe that the longform essay has a home on the Internet, and that the idea of "too long; didn't read" is exactly as shortsighted as its TL;DR acronym.

This does not mean that we eschew frivolity; far from it. Who doesn't enjoy a funny video, a current meme, or anything about bears? We love bears. And Science!

In the end, however, we return most frequently to New York City and its self-centered, all-consuming industries: media and publishing, finance and real estate, politics and capitalism and gamesmanship.



Splitsider is a website about comedy and the people who create it. It covers movies, TV shows, web videos, books and any other format that exists to make you laugh.

In the age of the Internet, there's a lot of talk about how the web and web videos are forcing change in traditional media. In no genre is that more true than comedy. Comedy is made for short-form video, for 10-second jokes, 3-minute sketches and 140-character puns. Splitsider is here to not only showcase the best comedy coming out every day, but to chronicle the changing landscape that comedy is released into.
