Thought For The Day: Fear is viral.

  • Why newspapers must die
    Today fresh information is immediate, cheap, abundant, available. News happens and is distributed in real time – worldwide – before lumbering outfits like the New York Times even have a chance to think up a catchy headline. Great video from Douglas Rushkoff at the end of the article. Mass media emerged for marketing reasons (not vice versa).
  • As Layoffs Surge, Women May Pass Men in Job Force
    This raises the question about whether salary equity is at the level of routine periodic compensation (paycheck) or total equity (paycheck times tenure). Lower paid people keep their jobs longer in the inevitable downturn.
  • Job Board For Community Managers
    This is a growth area in the downturn.
  • Evan Williams of Twitter Speaks at TED
    Twitter was a side project in Odeo which was not taking off. That should remind anybody to always let enough space for creativity and side projects.
  • Two attention-focusing apps kill distractions dead
    Forced focus is the key to productivity.

I’m on Twitter, Facebook, LinkedIn and Friendfeed. Catch up with me.
