Five Must-Read Posts from Last Week

Level 5 Sign 001I am always astounded at not just the number of quality, well-written posts produced each week – but also at the depth of thinking that is made available to us all.

I probably learn more from reading blog posts each week than I do from the dozens of books that I read each year. This weeks’ five must-read posts are great examples:

  1. Jay Baer shares 11 reasons that your company needs Facebook. Or more precisely, he explains why Facebook can be useful for your marketing efforts.
  2. Not exactly from last week – but Niko Herzeg writes about the need to focus our strategies and products not on the objects, but on the transitions that they facilitate. It’s why Apple products win.
  3. Forrester’s announcement that its analysts were no longer permitted to publish personally branded blogs generated much conversation. Dennis Howlett offers one perspective.
  4. Now take a look at Josh Bernoff’s perspective on the matter. Interesting challenges. Interesting times.
  5. And for something completely different, Amber Naslund shares 8 Apps I Use and Love – some only work for Macs, but the others are gold.
