Unknown Fiddler from Southern US Field Trip, 1959 (Lomax Collection, US Library of Congress)

  1. 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”).
  2. The New York Public Library released a stereogranimator.
  3. The experimental turk website includes a nice list of Mturk experimentation resources (via John Horton).
  4. Chris Blattman’s offered some sound recommendations on how to be a better reviewer & respondent.
  5. Henry Farrell (and many others) are taking a stand against Elsevier and you can join.
