As of late I have been upping my daily consumption of articles online, largely thanks to being pointed in the direction of an ifttt starred google reader to instapaper to kindle delivery service, which means I can read all my articles on my morning and evening commutes. As a result, I’m going to start doing the ever popular ‘weekly links’ blog post, if only to share some of the things that inspire/anger me…
Jye Smith’s post on being a better strategist is sound advice for anyone wanting to don the ‘digital strategist’ hat, hammering home how important being able to personally deliver on tactics, as well as strategy is for any strategist out there.
Neil Patel’s guest post on problogger talks about a great 4 part-formula for delivering irresistible content on your blog.
Olivier Blanchard posted a few weeks back on 10 things you still need to know about social media/social business, which I urge anyone in social to go and have a look at.
I finally got around to reading Jake Orr’s article on the UK’s theatre blogging community, where he praises Australia’s theatre blogging community (which is much smaller, but seems to have a larger voice) and calls on UK theatre bloggers to stop reviewing and start commenting.
Chris Unitt once again delivers the goods with two thought provoking responses to last week’s Twespians/SOLT event, the first being a nice rundown of the event, and the second talking about using data from social media to improve decision-making in marketing.
Finally, Honour Bayes wrote a well-thought out and argued article for the Guardian on whimsical theatre that makes her gag. However, I just couldn’t help myself and had to blog a response.
News from MIT that the Terminator is about to happen, with a robot that can continuously map and learn the environment with little human interaction, all through the use of a Kinect camera and a few sensors. The robots are coming, people.
A rather fluffy post from a while ago that resurfaced in one of my feeds on where ideas come from. it’s an area I’ve been looking into more and more recently, and the different ideas and theories around the best ways to generate ideas fascinate me.
Finally, an article that got me into a fight of sorts on Twitter this week on how the happiest people in the world spend their money. However, for anyone who isn’t in a tight financial situation, there are some great tips on potential ways to turn money into happiness (so money can buy you happiness!)
