Reading

2005-02-25 , ,

Finished [Gladwell’s Blink](http://www.lonsteins.com/archives/2005/02/21/long-weekend-reading/). I read a substantial portion of this before, I believe, excerpted in the New Yorker. It was entertaining and chock full of the cleverly presented annecdotes he’s known for. Other than his coining a phrase (“thin-slicing”), it’s fluff. I wonder if he didn’t start with the material for other articles and later try to draw a thesis out of it.

Started [The Scheme Programming Language](http://isbn.nu/0262541483/) by R. Kent Dybvig.
