Washington Post hosted a chat with Ted Castronova, author of Synthetic Worlds.

Steven Johnson talked about Everything Bad is Good for You on Charlie Rose (jump to the 41 minute mark or so). [via SJ's blog]

And some advice for PhD students on Inside HigherEd, including:

"Don’t feel that you need to create the greatest work that Western Civilization has ever seen. Five years from now the only thing that will matter is whether you finished."

[via Anne of PLSJ, thanks!]
