Announcing a Site Index (and an AMA)
A better way to find what you want, or didn't know you wanted
As the number of articles I’ve written has grown, it’s become harder and harder to make sense of the New Things Under the Sun back catalog. That’s a shame, because I update those older posts as the literature evolves, to keep them close to the academic frontier. So today I am happy to announce the launch of a set of indices to help readers figure out what they might want to read on New Things Under the Sun.
There are nine different indices, each of which gathers together all the articles I’ve written related to a specific topic, such as “how science works (or doesn’t)”, “geography of innovation”, and “how innovation is changing.” Inside each index, I’ve listed all the relevant articles on the topic and written a 3-6 bullet point description of the article’s contents.
My hope is this makes it easy to find what you want to find. Click the button below to check out the indices and see if there is an article on the site that you would have read but didn’t know existed!
But what if you’ve looked and what you want isn’t there? In that case, my advice is to head over to the progress forum, where I am answering user-submitted questions for the next 48 hours, and ask away.
Thanks everyone; back to your regularly scheduled programming next time!
Special thanks to my unpaid semi-competent intern, chatGPT for assistance writing bullet point descriptions of New Things Under the Sun articles. You didn’t really make this project easy, but you did make it feasible. Keep at it kid and I know, someday, I won’t have to rewrite >50% of your work.
Happy Valentines Day everyone!
