Another week another collection of posts! And as I look back on this past week of posts I thought, 'Man, what was I thinking?'. But alas, what is done is done.
I thought I would start posting each Sunday the summary of the week's posts in Tabbloid format. As you might recall from an earlier post, Tabbloid is a free service that lets you create a custom PDF format 'newspaper' from your selected blogs and other sites RSS feeds, and have that newspaper delivered via email on whatever schedule you choose.
Here is this week's collection of posts, in handy PDF format - Steve's Blog : May 31-June 6, 2010.
I hope making content accessible in this way is a help to someone out there, I will continue to post these collections on Sundays for the time being. I hope that if you find them useful, or actually download the PDF and give/send it to someone that otherwise would have never seen these posts, you would take a second and let me know in the comments.
This is one way to try to break out of the echo chamber, but it is certainly not the only way, and if you have other and better thoughts on how to do this, I would love to hear them.
Some other highlights from all the great posts and articles I read this week that I recommend:
Paying it Forward: Ideas Beyond the Traditional Merit Matrix - At Compensation Cafe, Ann Bares offers some new ideas and approaches to the staid, annual salary review process.

Five Lessons From the BP Oil Spill - Andrew Winston at the HBR offers one of the best takes on lessons from the oil spill. There has been so much written about this, but this piece does a great job of offering some solid advice without hyperventilating about it.
