Career Freedom: Around the World in 80 Trades Although this blog maybe about learning the strategies and tactics of self-made billionaires on the surface, at rock bottom it's about freedom. With that in mind, I'd like to share with you a great tale of a man who found freedom for a year. Suppose for a moment that time travel was possible and you found yourself 1000 years back in time somewhere along the old Silk Road with a limited grubstake of money. Could you survive by trading? The series, Around the World in 80 Trades , is about a man who places himself in such a predicament in order to test his mettle.

Every MBA student is pressed for time. Balancing demanding priorities, like classes, learning teams, job hunting, and family, while also getting some sleep, leaves little time for cruising the web looking for insightful posts. Lucky for you all, I can recommend 5 terrific blogs that can help you link what you’re learning in your MBA management classes with what’s happening in the real world. I have a particular bias about what’s important for managers and leaders to pay attention to, after 10 years of teaching MBAs and twice that consulting in organizations. My bias is that finance precepts, operations formulas and pricing strategies are plentiful, easy to find and easy to put into practice. In contrast, wisdom about leadership, management and organizations is more rare, harder to find, and more difficult to put into practice.
If you're not familiar with Netvibes , it's a home or start page. That is to say, it's your own personal portal to the net, with links to your favourite sites, RSS feeds, search widgets, email checking software and a whole bunch of other things besides. One of the time consuming things with a system of this type is that it takes time to create pages or tabs and to populate them with appropriate content. Netvibes has however overcome this problem by introducing dashboards. They're accessible from the top left hand corner of the screen (familiar if you're already using the system) thus: As you can see, I've already created two, one for the best football team in the world, and one for Web 2.0 They're simplicity to create - just click on the 'New' link, type in what interests you, and Netvibes almost instantly creates a dashboard.
Back to Blog Posted by: Brad Shorr Recently I had the privilege of attending a marketing and branding training session at the Wright Leadership Institute – three of the most productive hours I’ve spent in the classroom a long while. One of the things our group did was put together a list of new rules of engagement for networking. With the Wright Institute’s permission, I’m sharing the list (in my own words) because it’s a marvelous compendium of best practices for communication on the social web.
[Translations: Japanese ] The chatter in Twitter can accurately predict the box-office revenues of upcoming movies weeks before they are released. In fact, Tweets can predict the performance of films better than market-based predictions, such as Hollywood Stock Exchange , which have been the best predictors to date. The Social Computing Lab at HP Labs in Palo Alto, CA found that using only the rate at which movies are mentioned could successfully predict future revenues. But when the sentiment of the tweet was factored in (how favorable it was toward the new movie), the prediction was even more exact.
Just a quick pointer, in case you haven’t seen it yet, to Deirdre Reid’s post the New Volunteer Manifesto . It’s a Cluetrain-inspired call to action for associations, to define and develop the 21st century volunteer. Read it, comment, share it! Some of my favorite points (my bold): Members are strategic assets whose talents can be shared with the association. Invest in the infrastructure necessary to effectively recruit, develop, place, recognize and retain volunteer talent.

SEOmoz recently opened an API to their search engine optimization service, and inevitably comparisons were made to Site Explorer , which is a similar service offered by Yahoo. In a field where stats are king, the 500 links offered by the free SEOmoz service seemed to come up short against the 1000 links offered by Site Explorer. But that has now changed, with SEOmoz doubling their volume of data available with their free API: You might have gotten a totally awesome email last week announcing that the free SEOmoz API is now serving up to 1,000 links. This is the same free API that’s powering tons of internal reporting tools and plenty of tools you might have already seen.

Most Linux distributions that are aimed at average users have a package management tool. RedHat and Fedora have RPM, Debian/Ubuntu/Mint has APT, Arch has Pacman and so on. Each of them essentially do the same thing — keep track of what is installed, lets you install and remove software as well as prompt you to update the installed software whenever necessary.
