Media roundup

Many things to read this week.

Slate‘s Double X launches as a standalone site (and they have a piece on the true nature of dolphins)…

OpenDemocracy on Ester Duflo: France’s Great Economic Hope for poverty reduction; The Wilson Quarterly on the shift in global birthrates; The Art Newspaper on Pal Hollender, a Swedish artist who uses ‘unethical’ cash for cultural scholarships; Ange Mlinko on the birth of the theaurus; Jonah Lehrer investigates the art of delayed gratification (and he has a great piece in Seed about creativity on command); TNR on homocons; Clay Shirky on newspapers, and a possible resolution for the problem of file-sharing?
