Family, a revelation hit me this week about this blog series. The base premise has been that I would highlight the five most interesting post that I read during the week. I have always focused on posts that were delivered during the past seven days, but what if I read for the first time an interest post that was crafted outside of that week period? Better yet, why am I artificially limiting myself to blog posts?
The purpose of this vehicle is to present relevant insights that help propel our business knowledge and understanding forward. Want an example of what I mean? Checkout this week’s first of five.
That’s why I’m changing out ‘Posts’ in the title name to ‘Insights’. It better fits how we need to think in this cross-platform environment. As always, I’ll never going into depth about the finds, so I encourage you check them out if they sound interesting.
This week’s first item of interest is episode 2: ‘Looking for the Change’ of the WHAT THE FUTURE (WTF) Television series that comes to us courteously of CNBC World. It focuses on MPESA (Mobile PESA), the African mobile payments system that is leading the world. With 11,000 new cell phone signups a day it is definitely a trend to watch.
This week’s other interests are:
- 21 principles for innovating in the real world from IDEO’s Diego Rodriguez
- Am I Allowed? Nilofer Merchant on Innovation
- Social Media. Listen. Learn. Respond. Repeat.
- Making Networking Effective — Your Timing is Everything
