Logic & Emotion points to a question that’s worth asking.
[The mainstreaming of social networks] has global implicationsâ€”it’s significant. It’s transforming how we connect, relate and even do business. And it has downsides too. But I have to ask, are we losing ourselves to the word social? And if we are, what’s next?
gaping void points to something many other folks also wonder about.
” . . . I know very little about software. I have never claimed to be that interested in it. What gets me working for Microsoft is that I’ve always been very interested in something else, namely, how people make a living. This is true for large companies, small companies, billionaires and “humble tradesmen” alike. This is why I can work with a large software company like Microsoft, or a small tailoring firm like English Cut, and find them both utterly fascinating. Everybody needs to get paid; that is the great constant in business.”
Office Politics points to how it can be a challenge to work for someone who won’t offer a challenge.
I find this disconcerting because while I was doing my attachment in this firm (prior to being called to the Bar), she hardly said two words to me but once the Firm decided to take me on, she jumped and requested for me to work under her. Now sheâ€™s treating me this way.
Black in Business points to a three-part strategy for building and using a resume that works.
These were director level people with staffâ€™s of their own. These 40 something business people had been with their previous companies for several years and had contributed to the success of their organizations. They never expected to be on the market. They do not know each other but had aligned their resumes in the same fashion.
Joyful Jublilant Learning points to tools that open up the digital.
Since there are so many opportunities, philosophies, and ideas that are being developed in the area of digital learning, I simply wanted to share some of my favorite tools. This isn’t necessarily a “Top 10” list, rather, it is ten tools that I use that help to facilitate the learning that takes place for me on a daily basis.
American Pai pointed out a more emotional social network.
Who would want a service that is basically a twitter for emotions and feelings? Canâ€™t we just post how we feel already on Twitter, our blogs and other mediums? Sure, we can and we do, but Moonrise does it in a more powerful and compelling way. Most of all, itâ€™s fun too.
