Around the Web Digest

We like to read at Savage Minds and we like to share. Around the Web is our a monthly collection of internet flotsam ostensibly of interest to anthropologists. There’s some news and politics, a few timewasters, and academia stories mixed in with reports about evolution, culture, and methodology. You can follow us @savageminds, like us on Facebook, or wait for them to be collected here. Here’s what we were reading in the month of May.
