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!

An interview and long-form piece on Apple retail chief Angela Ahrendts

This year, I'd like to hear from you about what you've learned over coffee. In the meantime, read about the race to save coffee from climate change.
... 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.
