Weekend read: Wonga, drones and fracking

This is a fascinating Nesta blog by Stian Westlake describing the lack of inherent moral good or evil in innovative ideas. It’s quite short – if you’re looking for something related but longer, this discussion of Wonga’s business model by William Shaw in Wired is also very interesting (and, indeed, Westlake links to it in his article). So, two for the price of one this week!
