Sweet Readin'

I get the sense people appreciate our blog's tendency to stray from straight-up litblogging, and so I'm going to make more of an effort to regularly link here to the things I read on other subjects.

So here's one thing: I regularly enjoy Felix Salmon's blogging on finance and economics -- it's often over my head, but I enjoy the challenge and often feel I'm actually learning. This piece on the increasingly automated nature of Wall Street, where trading is increasingly handled by artificial intelligences working at inhuman speeds, is meant to explain the issue to those of us who aren't exactly experts on the stock market, and as such it's especially readable and informative.
