My favorite links from this week:

- A thread about google’s censorship in China
- Data on groups that cooperate best
- The surprising endurance of the eReader
- The United Nations climate report: “We Didn’t Realize How Soon It’s Going to Come”
- Bill Gates published a great article about what he’s doing to combat climate change
