It has been a crazy busy week for me, and my reading list was much longer that normal. I have culled the seven best pieces for you to read and enjoy this weekend. Some of them might have lessons for all of us.
- The golden ratio otherwise known as Feng Shui. The design interpretation of Feng Shui. This might be the most fun and surprising piece I read this week.
- Has Shoedazzle lost its dazzle? Apparently, it is no longer a shoe subscription service. Instead, it sells everything for $40. Oh well, it was fun while it lasted.
- The library of utopia: A Harvard-led group is trying to put our literary heritage online, trying to win where Google Books came a cropper. It is a great piece and a reminder that Nick Carr can still write magazine pieces and not just books.
- Richard Starr’s amazing piece We are the porn generation is a meaty reflection on our times.
- Behavior change as a value proposition: Adaptive Path weighs in on one of my favorite topics. I have often said that Google, Facebook and Twitter won, because they changed our habits and behaviors. This is smart post. Save it to your favorite read it later app.
- Why are telecom companies blocking rural america from getting high-speed Internet? And why hasn’t this topic gotten more attention. (We have done our bit.)
- How I blog: One of my favorite bloggers, Amber Naslund shares how she blogs. I learned a trick or two, even after all these years.
