Daily Thoughts 2/2/2011

It was raining and icy.  I went to work but found they needed to do some repairs because of the snow.  I ended up finishing rereading Content Strategy for the Web.  It is very much a book for web editors, designers, and strategists.  If you work with content, you will probably find it useful.

I also read some more of Power Why Some People Have It-- And Others Don't by Jeffrey Pfeffer.  This book has a Machiavellian quality to it.  It describes how to be both liked and feared in a work setting. It also explains why success is about much more than performance.  There is quite a bit on flattery and how to give people compliments.  It is a kind of uncomfortable subject.
