Current Reading

This blog is primarily for me to blog my responses to books that I'm reading. Sometimes I blog about other stuff too, though.

I'm currently reading Notes on the Death of Culture: Essays on Spectacle and Society by Mario Vargas Llosa.

Quick musing

Copious amounts of ink and electrons are spilled over a failure to distinguish between "Aptitude doesn't matter, only effort" and "Effort is the only way to succeed." The second statement is indisputably true.  The first is gravely mistaken.  Even worse, when aptitude is ignored by people trying to encourage students in decisions with career implications, harm may be done.
