This Week I Learned #10 – 18 August 2013


  1. Chinese charity auctions to support dissidents’ families, a lengthy read and an extremely interesting one.
  2. The shops of Heathrow Airport. Did you know that the clothes shops at the airport put the ties near the front, the better to appeal to rushed travellers?
  3. Unconditional cash transfers to the poor.
  4. Facebook and happiness, although I would note that correlation does not equal causation.
  5. When algorithms exacerbated a discriminatory hiring process.
  6. Tax return fraud, and those who fight it (free reg’n required).
  7. Apps for animals.
