This Week I Learned #12 – 31 August 2013

  1. An interesting and thought-provoking piece on the automation of work, then and now. Well worth the free registration.
  2. David Landes, economic historian, has died. I wrote about one of his (excellent) books here; and here is a great excerpt from another of his works.
  3. Remote controlling the actions of another human being!
  4. Doing business the old-fashioned way on the Zimbabwe Stock Exchange.
  5. Poetic justice? A British man is making money from cold callers by redirecting them to his own premium line.
