Six Links Worthy Of Your Attention #192

Mitch JoelPosted by

Is there one link, story, picture or thought that you saw online this week that you think somebody you know must see?

My friends: Alistair Croll (BitCurrent, Year One Labs, GigaOM, Human 2.0, Solve For Interesting, the author of Complete Web Monitoring, Managing Bandwidth: Deploying QOS in Enterprise Networks and Lean Analytics), Hugh McGuire (PressBooks, LibriVox, iambik and co-author of Book: A Futurist’s Manifesto) and I decided that every week the three of us are going to share one link for one another (for a total of six links) that each individual feels the other person "must see".

Check out these six links that we’re recommending to one another:

Now it’s your turn: in the comment section below pick one thing that you saw this week that inspired you and share it.

    ‘Why 18th century books looked like smartphone screens.’ I jettisoned the kindle and physical books to read on a small iPhone screen which I can take with me and read wherever I want. For me, the small screen induces focus and makes me feel like I read through the pages quicker. This preferred reading style apparently isn’t so different than the small page format in the 18th century.

  2. I liked this article about the new face of hiring – less about expertise, and more about emergent leadership, learning, humility, etc. I think Pamela Slim would agree.
