five ideas and one coffee

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!

Five Ideas.

Idea One:
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. ).

Idea Two:
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.

Idea Three:

Idea Four:
Understanding relative wealth using logarithms - the richer scale.

Idea Five (the how-to's):
How to

One Coffee.

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.
