What I'm Reading

  • Jared brings more of his usual insight, this time to online relationships, social media, and the difference between "keeping in touch" and being present in someone's life.
  • Tips for getting your email delivered and read from people who would know (the team at SmartBrief). It's part of a series, so check out the rest, too.
  • Ed Bennett offers a great explanation about why you sometimes need to dig deeper into your site stats - and what you might find when you do.
  • Ever held a brainstorming session that was more like a brain drizzle? OpenForum has 5 tips to make sure that never happens again.
  • Lindy wrote an amazing post about volunteerism in the wake of her first experience with the Marketing Section Council at #asae09. If you haven't already read it, go read it. Yes, I mean NOW.
  • This is hilarious, but don't be that guy. Seriously.
  • Can universal broadband fight global warming? Salon.com says yes.
  • Jakob Nielsen offers some insights on combating participation inequality.
  • Chris Brogan reminds us how easy it is to say thank you. The challenge? Do one of these TODAY.
  • Maddie also had a great post about #asae09 - this one a roundup of comments and ideas from people who couldn't go, supplemented by her own insights.
  • And I'm still working my way through Groundswell and re-reading Harry Potter and the Half-Blood Prince, just in case I ever get around to seeing the movie.
