Freakonomics, the blog

If you liked the book then you’ll probably like the blog too. I’ve said before that I loved the book. Even if you don’t agree with it, it gets you thinking.

In fact, on a recent flight, I mentioned the book to a guy sitting next to me and he had an unusual reaction to it. He said that when he had recommended it to a black co-worker, that they had found it racist. I cannot speak for everyone but I read the book and I didn’t see it that way.

Anyway, it was a great book and the blog is pretty good too:

Windows Live Writer Beta

This little windows app lets you create your blog entries in a nice little editor on the desktop rather in the browser.

I’m writing from the app now and I have to say its pretty cool.

I used it for another blog on a long message and it did great.
