Here are my favourite links from this week, curated by Fraggl:
- An exceptional and very moving talk from writer Andrew Solomon (above) on how the worst moments in our lives make us who we are
- An antidote to the hype around the so-called 'sharing economy': The case against sharing
- “It turns out the Internet, like every other technology, doesn’t trend toward good or bad. It is just a convenience machine for what people want. Television was going to make us all better people, smarter and better educated, but people ended up sitting back and watching sitcoms. We want to create something that rewards other things that have more lasting value.” Evan Williams, quoted in this good article on the rise of Medium
- An interesting description from Brilliant Noise of a network and influence mapping process
- Just in time for the world cup, The Economist takes a look at the economics of Panini football stickers
