    Wrap-Up - June 7 - 13, 2010

    Another week another collection of posts!  And as I look back on this past week of posts I thought, 'A Brady Bunch pic, really?' Good thing there is no editor on the site. palette of delacroix

    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 : June 7-13, 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:

    HR Exposed: Put Some Pants On - Kathy Rapp writing at the Fistful of Talent reminds us all that getting in the game is still an issue for some in HR

    Searching for Soul - from the always solid Brains on Fire blog, a call to think less about technology, tactics, and products, and more about people

    Rising Together - from Lisa Rosendahl writing at the new Women of HR site.  Breaking glass ceilings one at a time - awesome.

    When You Use Bad Stock Photography You Make Baby Jesus Cry - from Frank Roche at KnowHR.  HR Technology vendors are often guilty of his on their websites. Use some real people!

    Charles Barkley says what we're all thinking about MJ's mustache - from Ball Don't Lie - some really funny comments from Sir Charles on MJ's shaky decisions with facial hair.

    Thanks for stopping by this week and have a fantastic upcoming week as well!

    Weekly Wrap Up - May 24-30, 2010

    Another week another collection of posts!  Please contain your enthusiasm :).

    Some other highlights from all the great posts and articles I read this week that I recommend:

    Handmade Hoops put the Clang into New York Courts - From the New York Times - a look at the blacksmiths that still hand craft the famous and unforgiving New York City playground basketball hoops. Nothing like an unforgiving solid steel rim to make you take it to the rack.

    Use What You Have to Get What You Need - From Jason Seiden - a great piece about taking smaller and more direct steps to better take control of outcomes .

    Handy New Gmail Labs Feature Shifts Attachment Icons to the Left - From Web Worker Daily.  A simple and effective way to put Gmail attachment icons in a more prominent and convenient position on the left hand side of the display.

    Culture is Hard to Define - Do it Anyway - From Jason Lauritsen - just because something like culture, leadership, or attitude are 'hard' to define, doesn't mean we can simply shrug our shoulders and give up.

    What's the Deal With Not Following People Back On Twitter - from Clue Wagon - Kerry asks and the commenters discuss some of the reasons why like minded people seem to think the 'return follow' is a big deal.

    Have a great Memorial Day weekend, give thanks to the men and women of the military who made the ultimate sacrifice.

    Weekly Wrap Up - May 17-23, 2010

    Still in keeping with the recurring theme of trying to break out of the echo chamber and making online content (like this blog) more easily accessible and consumable for those people that will never find their way here to read the blog (see the following crude pie chart below analyzing these populations).

    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.

    And so I don't get accused of simply 're-purposing' my own content to keep the feed readers fed, here is a new bit of information - the excellent and very cool site Significant Objects in conjunction with their sister site HiLobrow recently announced a neat writing contest. The premise - Write a story set in the town or city where you live, but imagine that it (and its surrounding area) has been flooded with several hundred thousand gallons of crude oil daily, because of a drilling-related crisis some weeks earlier. You might find using the interactive Gulf Coast Oil Spill Map helpful in this eco-catastrophic exercise, but it’s not a requirement. 

    The 'story' has a short 250 word maximum, and you can post your entry in the comments of this post on HiLobrow. I mentioned it here since I know at least a few HR bloggers out there are reading this and thinking, 'Man I am getting tired of writing about management/leadership/crazy interview tales again'. So there you go, a good reason to try out a bit of a 'stretch assignment'. 

    Happy Sunday!

    So as you can see from the chart, there is still plenty of 'blue ocean' out there.
