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.
