I prefer magazines and books. However, there are some books that I read on my iPad - usually the easy, mindless summer reads. I can mark up books, flag a page, flip to my favorite parts, etc.

Because “spin” shouldn’t be part of any marketing effort. The best marketing simply tells a true story well.

Truer words never said.

I really like storied autobiographies – I’m always curious about how life shapes people – but Peter’s vignettes are especially compelling because who doesn’t sometime fantasize about chucking it all and drinking wine in a two-centuries old farmhouse? Or is that just me?

Why can't we all have that strength? ;-)

@RobBiesenbach @ginidietrich  I like your sister's question: "Why are we the one who always have to adapt?" I wonder if it's another part of how society raises us...we are the caretakers, pleasers, etc. I know I'm a pleaser most of the time but I work hard to overcome that instinct when working. It's a continuous battle for me.

@ginidietrich "We have to train ourselves to support women and let them talk about their achievements without scorning them."  To me, this is the root of the problem. It is EXTREMELY rare for women in the same industry and on the same teams, to support each other. Call it scopecreep, jealousy, whatever...I've even heard people say "it's a cultural thing". BS. I don't know why but just like women dress for other women when going out on the town, we immediately become concerned with "is she better than me?" in the workplace. I still say it can be boiled down to once again learning and USING social manners. In two words, "be nice". Unfortunately, until everyone starts being nice and respecting each other again, this is going to continue to be an uphill battle. Shame on us.

To @Howie Goldfarb 's comment...this makes it even harder to educate and persuade companies to use social media and use it correctly. How do you go about it now?

I’ve attributed it to content exhaustion and blog commenting not being a top priority for many anymore, but Livefyre thinks Sidenotes will result in more comments.

Perhaps we're still doing too much multi-tasking?

It is wrong to create false stories, etc., when it comes to illness, disease, death, etc. Everyone knows or has  known someone close to them who fights a good fight to beat chronic conditions. One should not belittle these things or these people.
