What we read this week (26 Apr)

How the internet is trying to make a living, the bizarre notion that life on Earth might predate Earth itself, “demetricating” Facebook, drawing conclusions about the trajectory of human life from Facebook data, and what happens when Google knows more about what your company’s up to than you do.

Quote of the week
