Celebrating PALLADIUM 09
Last week, readers, writers, and editors of Palladium gathered on a warm Austin night for the launch of PALLADIUM 09: Political Outcomes. Editor-in-Chief Wolf Tivy and Executive Editor Matt Ellison ushered in the night with an introduction to Palladium for our newer guests and a discussion of print magazines in the digital age. Everyone looked great and we appreciated the imagination that went into the costumes. Here’s a few of the pictures:
Thanks for coming and see you next time!

Here’s what’s been on the front page lately:
Madame Mao’s Nietzschean Revolution by Dylan Levi King. As Mao Zedong’s wife, Jiang Qing helped lead China’s Cultural Revolution with a Nietzschean philosophy of art. Through revolutionary operas and ballets, she sought a heroic consciousness that could transform society.
Our Knowledge of History Decays Over Time by Ben-Landau Taylor and Samo Burja. Despite modern approaches to archaeology and preservation, as history moves forward we will only lose knowledge of the past.
Bill Gates Has Perfected Managerial Philanthropy by Brian Balkus. Bill Gates has used his foundation to win prestige and secure the goals of the elite consensus. But without strategic independence, he cannot act against its worst ideas.
What Genius Looks Like by Ginevra Davis. James Glimm may have just solved one of the most complex problems in mathematics—but his life’s work might be able to teach us the secret of living well.
The West Lives On in the Taliban’s Afghanistan by David Oks. The Taliban has succeeded in reconquering Afghanistan. But while the U.S. may be gone, the new regime faces increasing Westernization among its subjects—and its own fighters.
That’s all for now.
