One of the best aspects of living life digitally is being able to share what I read in a millisecond. I remember copying, faxing and mailing articles to clients. Then I remember emailing them. The tools we have now are an article clipper's dream.
Today, I use StumbleUpon and Google Reader both to catalog my favorites and to share them with followers on those sites. I'm starting to do more on Facebook and LinkedIn as well, mainly through a standing link from my Twitter feed to those networks. My goal is to wean myself off saving things to my computer.
As part of this process, I'm attempting to share five articles, saved and shared to my various networks, here on the blog every week, too. So here they are.
- The obituary of Edward Stobart in The Economist.
- How to hold attention, by the brilliant John Hagel, with John Seely Brown, on Harvard Business Review.
- Figuring out where your buyers are, from the blog by Content Marketing Institute.
- The backlash against the academic Mafia [my phrase!], in The Atlantic.
- Mitch Wagner's take on Don Tapscott's view of capitalism, on The CMO Site.
