I don’t always let images load as I browse the net; sometimes, captions and other pic-related text have to pay for my stinginess. Virginia Postrel’s book thus got a rather strange title, The Substance of Sty. Her name reminds me of a Russian saying, Nash postrel vezde pospel, whatever it means. And her knowledge arbitrageur is a most fortunate term for a much-needed species.


UPDATE. Postrel (paw-STREHL) is an agile, cunning child–I’d say a boy, but possibly a tomboy. A perfect nick for the The Dynamist.
