Tuesday, November 04, 2003 and lousy Ivy educations

Oh dear, this blog is so good that I am really a bit unhappy to have found it - the time, the time, it will take to read this marvelous stuff.

The two blowhards, Michael and Friedrich, who describe themselves as a "media flunky and arts buff" and an "entrepeneur and arts buff" have a blog called, you might have imagined it from the beginning,, which they describe as follows:

"In which two graying eternal amateurs discuss their passions, interests and obsessions, among them: movies, art, politics, evolutionary biology, taxes, writing, computers, these kids these days, and lousy Ivy educations."

To which - I must exclaim - that when the grass is always greener, they could have gone to Nebraska instead. And then they would have noticed they mispelled Freidrich in their template.

Their most recent posting - as of this date of course - is that "We Need a Sociobiological Economics", Friedrich writing to Michael, in a superb discussion - and beyond - of a book by Robert Axelrod, “The Evolution of Cooperation.”

Although they do not say it, it all has something to do with John von Neumann, the greatest mathematician of the 20th century, father of the internal programming of computers and of game theory, a theory which you can reduce to the basic principle that "if all other things are equal, the winner of the game is determined by the rules".

So, do the 2 Blowhards discuss "the rules"? Take a look at their blog.
