I’m preoccupied studying for a Macro test, but here are some interesting stories/sites I have come across recently.
Unigo.com: Provides uncensored student reviews of almost every college and university in America. Similar to the Princeton Review, except up-to-date, uncensored, and much more interactive. Prospective college students making a monumental decision are plagued by asymmetric information. Current college students love talking about their schools. Unigo fills a huge need and advertisers pay big bucks to target prospective students. Prediction: It will be a big success.
Polymeme.com: Blog and news aggregator of interesting stories. Someone described it as a “smart person’s Digg.” You won’t find any top 10 lists or iPhone tutorials here. Polymeme uses an algorithm and human editors to select noteworthy pieces from a database of about 25,000 “leading blogs”. And yes, AspiringEconomist.com is one of those blogs.
A Visual Map of U.S. Ancestry. Take a look. It gave me a whole different perspective on the U.S. as a melting pot.
Stephen Dubner asks MBA students how the last week has altered their career plans.
