Slate Star Codex is a participant in the Amazon Services LLC Associates Program, an affiliate advertising program designed to provide a means for sites to earn advertising fees by advertising and linking to Amazon.com.
That means whenever you click on a link to an Amazon product off this site and buy it, I get a certain percent of the revenue (it does not cost you more). If you buy other things off Amazon soon afterwards, I get some of that money too.
I am not going to do that thing where I suddenly start writing lots of blog posts on how great Amazon’s new Kindle is with links liberally scattered throughout. But since I’ve been writing lots of book reviews anyway, I’ll just start putting links to the books on Amazon when I do it. Occasionally if I mention a book in another context I’ll link to Amazon there as well.
I am not going to affiliate-link to Amazon when talking about medical products (supplements, etc) because that is a huge ethical minefield. I did however edit all Amazon links to medical products from before late July 2014 to use my affiliate link, since I can’t exactly corrupt my behavior in the past.
