Here’s a bunch of cool stuff for you to feast on this weekend.

A really cool read on Ivan Krstić’s blog: How Porsche hacked the financial system and made a killing. The Porsche-Volkswagen’s short crunch shenanigans made simple.

Lebbeus Woods, brilliant as usual: Same Difference. The conflict between the globalization of ideas and a growing culture of individual affirmation - and why new urban landscapes are becoming undistinguishable. Read the comments too.

If you’re short on time, this is the link you don't want to miss. Dan Ariely, a professor of behaviour economics at the MIT, talks about the Tendencies of Irrational Behavior. There’s also a ton of stuff to read on his personal website. Via Quinta do Sargaçal, SwissMiss.

The Century Of The Self is a 2002 BBC documentary authored by Adam Curtis. How 20th century political systems have used Freud’s theories to influence and manipulate the general population.

Loud Paper presents an interesting article by Bryan Boyer: The Mediators. Architecture as a vehicle for the transmission of ideas.

A wonderful blog: Paleo-Future. The future as it never was.
