Tyler Cowen, professor of economics at George Mason University, general director of the Mercatus Center, and founder of the popular economics blog Marginal Revolution, discusses how the internet influences and changes practically everything.  The conversation broadly centers on how the web allows us to find, distill, and sort information as never before, which has profoundly affected people’s consumption of culture and creation of their own economies.  During the podcast Cowen touches on Lost and Battlestar Gallactica, the iPad, books, the future of the publishing industry, old and new media, Facebook, Twitter, ChatRoulette, and his favorite things on the internet.

    The interviewer is almost inaudible! Otherwise awesome. I can't get enough of Tyler Cowen.

    Yeah, even with my volume cranked all the way up I can only hear Cowen, though I can gather from what he's saying that there's another person there.

    I loved the term “infovor system” I read here: http://aminotes.tumblr.com/post/646956767/a-nov… and so will be interesting what approach Tyler Cowen takes in his new book next month.
