This week's links are all about how learning things is good:
First, Bad Mom Good Mom has an awesome post about using thermodynamics to heat your home, which I loved. We've also been known to let the kids' bathwater hang out in the tub all evening, to help keep the house warm.
I also really enjoyed Laura Vanderkam's article about self help books. I am not a huge consumer of self help books, but I don't completely avoid the genre, either. I don't think I would ever adopt the "program" advocated by a self help book completely and uncritically, but they do sometimes have helpful ideas, which I can incorporate into my life.
Changing gears completely, Dan McKinley has a post about the dangers of thinking that correlation implies causation and overinterpreting A/B tests.
Despite the risk over overinterpretation, it is still good to gather and analyze data... as this article about Google HR makes clear. I think this is the only article that has ever made me think a job in HR would be cool.
Finally, I could try to invent some link with my theme this week, but it would be a lie. I just think that this building is really cool.
