Welcome to five ideas and one coffee. Each week, a combination of what's going on in the ongoing convergence of digital and social media, and how that impacts the way we communicate. Plus, something I learned about coffee this week. Let's get started!
How facebook figures out everyone you've ever met (What if you don't like Facebook having this data about you? All you need to do is find every person who's ever gotten your contact information and uploaded it to Facebook, and then ask them one by one to go to Facebook's contact management page and delete it. Just don't miss anyone. ).
The rise of the management philosopher-kings. Helps answer some of the questions I have about why we do budgeting and accounting the way we do.
Two different angles into the risks being faced by online journalism - a facebook experiment in Serbia limits the reach of independent journalism, and the coming digital crash
Understanding relative wealth using logarithms - the richer scale.
Idea Five (the how-to's):
This year, I'd like to hear from you about what you've learned over coffee. In the meantime, an occasionally sweary rant against a particular coffee making technique.
... that's it!
See you next week. Hit reply if you've learned something, or if you'd like to suggest an idea or a coffee.
