Five things I learned this week
February 12, 2012
Unknown Fiddler from Southern US Field Trip, 1959 (Lomax Collection, US Library of Congress)
- Supposedly, much of the Alan Lomax archive of music will eventually go online. Until then, I console myself with this tiny playlist from the album versions of his “Southern Journey” (and in particular the Fred McDowell track “What’s the Matter Now”).
- The New York Public Library released a stereogranimator.
- The experimental turk website includes a nice list of Mturk experimentation resources (via John Horton).
- Chris Blattman’s offered some sound recommendations on how to be a better reviewer & respondent.
- Henry Farrell (and many others) are taking a stand against Elsevier and you can join.
