The-Ocean-of-Churn I just bought my friend Sanjeev Sanyal’s book, The Ocean of Churn: How the Indian Ocean Shaped Human History. Sanjeev is a polymath with varied interests, some of which intersect with my own. A few years back I had the pleasure of having dinner with him and Reihan Salam, and the server kept unapologetically offering drinks one of us had ordered to the wrong person. I don’t think we look that much alike!

The top start-up mecca in America is far from Silicon Valley. It’s cheap to live here, and fun for young brogrammers. Also, not too long a flight from elsewhere. As Mark Krikorian observed on Twitter being a blue bubble in a red state means that Austin can take advantage of low-cost and low-tax public policies, while maintaining a culturally liberal social aesthetic.

Sausage Party is a surprising mix of high and lowbrow.

  1. 2. They seem to have duplicated the blue state regulatory regime, though, or are trying to (as limited by Texas state law). It doesn’t surprise me that it’s still a startup mecca – I’ve always thought things like the local economy’s economic health, access to talent, and costs of living outweighed things like variations in tax regime and most regulations (as long as those regulations weren’t too onerous).

    Sounds like I might like it more than San Antonio, although I wouldn’t want to live in either city unless the money was good (I like living in cool, mountainous places).

  2. The success of red state policies in Texas draws increasing numbers of blue voters until the state will be flipped. Then the newly enacted blue policies will start driving the red tribe out, making the state even more blue in a self strengthening cycle.
    North Carolina trans law may have driven some investors out, but it could serve as a way of keeping the ultraliberals out and preserve the current political balance of the state.

  3. Hey Razib,

    What do you think of the terms “superiority” when it comes to human populations and “more evolved” when it comes to comparing one organism to another?

    people who talk in those terms about population genetics are inferior and less evolved. sabine's statement in my other posts applies: you're not a serious thinker and label yourself as stupid or ignorant.
