Productive Culture [Mar. 28th, 2005|02:13 pm]
I followed a link to a very interesting essay today, and when I bounced up to the "Essays" page to see what else the author might have written of interest, discovered that there were already eight followed links from some unremembered previous visit. So it would seem that Paul Graham writes good stuff.

Why Americans make some things well and others badly.

I have always thought that is the problem with American Olympic gymnastic teams.

Hear me out. What is lacking from our women's gymnastics is a sense of grace. American gymnasts focus on power and variety, and when coupled with the youth of the participants, it leads to quick and strong movements with little finesse, which is why I think they haven't been medalling so much. I would like to see a gymnastics team that required a bit of ballet for its participants.
