  • '“You’re gonna miss us when we’re gone!” has never been much of a business model.' Clay Shirky's piece is required reading if you're interested in the future of journalism.
  • Carrot and stick: I agree with Kevin Drum that this is a pretty offensive metaphor in diplomacy. 
  • Details of China's massive new investment in urban and inter-city rail. (H/t All Roads Lead to China.)
  • Photographic proof that Ronald Reagan met Vladimir Putin?
  • Japan is sending a naval contingent to participate in anti-piracy operations off Somalia. Predictably, the domestic politics behind this deployment have been...complicated.
