Continuing our Today's Links feature, here are some interesting stories and posts on the web:
- Does Harry Potter have competition? Have you heard of Eclipse? (From ABC News).
- On capitalism ("the system of disorder") and entrepreneurship, via Marginal Revolution.
- An article from the WSJ on serial entrepreneurship. (Membership required but if you send me an email I can forward the article to you).
- We went through some of this when we started College Knowledge. The post, via the Brazen Careerist blog, has some good information. The best line: The most important advice is probably to stay confident things will work out for you.
- An article from the WSJ on the benefits of blogging for small businesses. (Membership required but if you send me an email I can forward the article to you).
- Switching gears, here's a bit of investing wisdom from Ben Casnocha. There's valuable information in there and the post is a good follow up to our Everything Investing post from last week. A personal note on Ben: he's been very kind in trading emails with me and he's someone I measure myself against. Also, his book makes a lot of good points so be sure to check it out.
- Related to the above is this article on social networking and investing, from BusinessWeek.
- I authored a paper in 11th grade on Brown vs. Board, an excerpt of which you can find here via The Key Issues project (note: no longer maintained) I created in 2005. However, this excellent (though long) post on Brown vs. Board is much better and worth a read if you have 10-15 extra minutes.
- Speaking of reading, if you're looking for a way to save money on books here's some pretty standard advice. I also suggest Project Gutenberg, something we've blogged about before.
- On democratic candidates and education, from the Huffington Post.
- This guy wants to change the college admissions process (From the San Diego Union-Tribune).
- Study abroad isn't just for undergraduates, from Portfolio.com.
- Addendum: A post on the topic of talent, from Freakonomics.
