What we found on the web this week:


maths and monopoly

Nic: How to use maths to win at Monopoly

I’ll make sure to try them on my next game!

Interesting facts and statistics about how people read online and how distracted they are. When I saw the title, I was determined to read the article to the end, just to prove them wrong. But I have to admit that I got distracted and didn’t finish it. I did scroll down to read the conclusion though!

Great tips for anyone looking to create and launch an app.

Particularly love how you select a letter in the index, very intuitive.
