Networked Communities: Strategies for Digital Collaboration by Sylvie AlbertMy rating: 2 of 5 stars It was an OK book. Definitely focuses more on the organizational and managerial aspects of networked communities (which aren't of much use to me at the moment). There were some interesting nuggets of information buried throughout the book if you looked carefully enough. I am kind
Jobs responding to criticism
This came across my feed today. This was obviously not available to me at that time, but it's definitely worth the watch. I guess this is a time when Jobs wasn't throwing cameras at people ;-)
The evolution of an MBA
