Passings ~ Elinor Ostrom (1933-2012)

I woke this morning to the news that Elinor Ostrom has died. The news release from Indiana University is here. This is extremely sad. I often say that smart and decent are a rare combination among intellectuals. Lin combined the two in a nearly optimal way. That is quite a feat. I will link to obituaries and remembrances as they appear.
P.S.: Obituaries from The Guardian and The New York Times here and here respectively.
