Amateur Freak Blog

Freakonomics: A Rogue Economist Explores the Hidden Side of Everything is the debut non-fiction book by University of Chicago economist Steven Levitt and New York Times journalist Stephen J. Dubner. Published on April 12, 2005, by William Morrow, the book has been described as melding pop culture with economics.[1] By late 2009, the book had sold over 4 million copies worldwide.[2] Based on the success of the original book, Levitt and Dubner have grown the Freakonomics brand into a multi-media franchise, with a sequel book, a feature film, a regular radio segment on National Public Radio, and a weekly blog.

Freakonomics has been criticized for being a work of sociology or criminology, rather than economics. Israeli economist Ariel Rubinstein criticized the book for making use of dubious statistics and complained that "economists like Levitt ... have swaggered off into other fields", saying that the "connection to economics ... [is] none" and that the book is an example of "academic imperialism".[5] Arnold Kling has suggested the book is an example of "amateur sociology".[6]

The success of the book has been partly attributed to the blogosphere. In the campaign prior to the release of the book in April 2005, publisher (William Morrow and Company) chose to target bloggers in an unusually strategic way, sending galley copies to over a hundred of them, as well as contracting two specialized buzz marketing agencies.[1]

I studied in-depth physiology, nutrition, endurance and strength principles. I studied and worked with some of the greatest minds in these fields to ensure that I became an expert. So that I could empower not just myself, but also to be able to guide others. After all, nothing is more important than ones health. Without it life cannot be lived to its full extent (Read my blog on the Fork in the Road).

To make some buzz around your approach to photography, try to play around with how you set up your camera. You can photograph the Eiffel Tower while standing just under it or capture Sagrada Familia from the inner courtyard. Shooting with your personal vision and capturing buildings will distinguish your shots from amateur ones.

If you want to reach a large number of people while still retaining control over your own voice, internet publishing of various forms is the way to go. Blogging, podcasting, video blogging, and the like can be very time-consuming but it is generally worth it due to their wide reach. It is common for even medium-level blogs to get hundreds of hits per day, and an established podcast will see individual episodes downloaded a number of times in the tens of thousands.

Debated on this blog only recently, and what most of us suspected is indeed happening: the NSA is collecting phone records of millions of Americans daily, and under a top secret court order issued in April.

I am a public-interest technologist, working at the intersection of security, technology, and people. I've been writing about security issues on my blog since 2004, and in my monthly newsletter since 1998. I'm a fellow and lecturer at Harvard's Kennedy School, a board member of EFF, and the Chief of Security Architecture at Inrupt, Inc. This personal website expresses the opinions of none of those organizations.

Reflecting back on this mid-game moment it had got me thinking about whether the intensity of a gaming experience could be measured by how hard a player gripped the controller. The first thing to ascertain was whether I was a freak or not, was this phenomenon just unique to me? Turns out that thankfully it wasn't, enough people at the studio (at the time - Bizarre Creations) shared the same experience. High intensity, it seemed, equalled feverish grip.

Now not being much of an electronics man I needed a solution where I could visualise the data from the FSR sensor. This came in the form of the wonderful Arduino board; a DIY electronic prototyping platform that even total amateurs like me can use. Not only could I buy an Arduino board but I could also buy a pack of FSR's and a bunch of other wires and other necessary paraphernalia from a wonderful specialist electronic website in the UK called Oomlout. These guys are also particularly awesome because they provide, free of charge, very well written step by step printed tutorials with each sensor that tells you how to get the sensors hooked up and working on the Arduino board. The FSR tutorial rig hooked up with an LED that would get brighter the more pressure that was applied to the sensor. This video was the result:

Excellent post. I'm on FB and twitter but I rely on my blog for my on-line presence. It's what I like so it's easier to invest more time. I try to be very aware that whatever I post can be seen/read by anyone so I tend to think hard before hitting 'publish.'

Great post, Anne. Paying it forward is a great way to approach Twitter, because it is very much filled with spam links. I personally love Facebook for chatting, but it is getting hard to be seen because of their new algorithms. I need to start blogging more, but I am always unsure of what readers really want to hear about, because I don't want to be posting about my books all the time. I am seriously thinking of just blogging once a week about what's going on in my life, etc.

Thanks so much for this very useful post. This is one that should receive wide readership. Have you thought about writing an article on this for one of the writing magazines? I will definitely be posting the link to this on my blog. Thanks for the material!

I'm thinking blog tours are also a waste of time. I've talked to enough readers to know the majority don't read blogs. I've guested on a couple of blogs, but I'm not about to do a tour. Even for the few blogs I've guested on, it was a lot of work! I'd rather be getting another book out there.

When I created my own blog, I tried to keep it personal in sharing what was going on in my life, because when I did want to find my favorite author, I wanted to know what they were like (or find out what other books they wrote). So I just do what someone like me would look for. Hopefully that works for me! 041b061a72
