Mid-Week Reads - The Best of Politics, Economics, & Ideas


Compared to last year, I think I have gone very slow in blogging; must post more often. Meanwhile, here's some dope for mid-week knowledge building.


  • What can Africa teach the eurozone? (BBC
  • Facebook’s Online Panopticon. (Newsweek)
  • The drugs don't work: a modern medical scandal. (Guardian)

Facebook has crossed one billion users! Here's a BBC graphic on the milestone. The passing of the milestone was announced by founder Mark Zuckerberg on US television today. 
The company said that those billion users were to date responsible for 1.13 trillion "likes", 219 billion photos and 17 billion location check-ins.

And think about it, FB is not available in China! That's One Billion Users without China! A phenomenal achievement!
