The Blue Sweater by Jacqueline Novogratz The Blue Sweater is the inspiring personal memoir of a woman who has spent her life on a quest to understand global poverty and to find powerful new ways of tackling it. From her first stumbling efforts as a young idealist venturing forth in Africa to the creation of Acumen, Jacqueline Novogratz, Acumen’s Founder and CEO, brings us a series of insightful stories and unforgettable characters — from women dancing in a Nairobi slum, to unwed mothers starting a bakery, to courageous survivors of the Rwandan genocide, to entrepreneurs building services for the poor against impossible odds. She shows, in ways both hilarious and heartbreaking, how traditional charity often fails, but how a new form of philanthropic investing called “patient capital” can help make people self-sufficient and change millions of lives. More than just an auto-biography or a how-to guide to tackling poverty, this book challenges us to grant dignity to the poor and to rethink our engagement with the world. Learn More

Den oändliga historien Just när det kändes som att samtalsklimatet blivit mildare, som att barns rättigheter hamnat lite mer i fokus och vuxnas oro lite mer i bakgrunden slår Nyhetsmorgon i tv4 till med full kraft. De har en barnpsykolog som svarar på tittarnas frågor ibland och idag valde hon att prata om nätpedofiler. Ni får själva se klippet och göra er en uppfattning men i min värld var det som att kliva fem år tillbaka i tiden. Märkligt nog var hon påläst. Men slutsatserna, att det är skitfarligt för alla hela tiden, de grundar sig inte på de fakta hon redovisade. Psykologen fokuserar mycket på sin egen oro och det verkar vara vuxnas oro som är det viktiga. Det är väldigt tråkigt att ett tv-program med så många tittare avslutar med råd direkt från 90-talet.

C'est une perte de temps Construire, développer et entretenir son réseau demande du temps, de l'implication, de la participation et de la constance.

iBooks Ideas I was intrigued that a few people saw my recent article about iBooks Author as a criticism (in the negative sense). That wasn’t my intention at all, and indeed I’m very enthusiastic about the ecosystem (iBooks Author, its file format, iBooks 2 as a reader/viewer, and the iBookstore as a storefront and delivery mechanism). My piece simply acknowledged that, as in any situation, there are trade-offs to be made, and that a book isn’t a project to be undertaken lightly or without due consideration. Earlier today I posted a list of fifteen suggestions, and received a few more in response, and thought I’d write up that list to hopefully inspire potential authors and even traditional publishers. Choose Your Own Adventure. And so forth. I’m excited about the iBooks 2 ecosystem, not just because it’s got people really talking and thinking about education, but because it finally puts a powerful tool into everyone’s hands and says “show me what you can do with this”.

Most Audacious Companies: Menlo Innovations Richard Sheridan doesn’t have a corner office. Or an office. Or even his own desk. The CEO of Menlo Innovations sits wherever his staff wants him to sit--near the sales pipeline board or next to the project manager with whom he’s working on a blog or with a team of programmers. And Sheridan’s not the only one in constant motion. At Menlo, a custom-software business in Ann Arbor, Michigan, the 50 employees work on projects with partners that change every week. "We borrowed the idea of switching from the airline industry," says Sheridan, who co-founded the company after being downsized from an executive position at another technology firm. The practice also builds in perpetual learning as employees effectively mentor each other all the time. The variety of partners and tasks also keeps employees from burning out on projects that sometimes roll out over years. Menlo’s feedback system further reinforces the collaborative model.
