From Andy Grove’s point-of-view on American jobs to Google’s growing power and the importance of solitude for leadership — here are some of the most interesting pieces I have read over the past few days. In particular, pay attention to the un-social nature of social networks; then go out and mingle.
* Andy Grove: What’s wrong with America and how we can fix it. (On this holiday weekend, find a moment to read what Grove has to say. You may not agree with him, but it will make you think differently.)
* William Deresiewicz: If you want others to follow, learn to be alone with your thoughts.
* The Telegraph: Google CEO: We are like the government. You can trust us with your data.
* PPC Blog: How Google Works: An easy to understand infographic.
* Nokia Blog: The fight starts now: Head of Nokia’s Mobility Solutions Group Anssi Vanjoki argues that he will bring Nokia back to the forefront of smartphone and mobile computer business. Good luck with that.
* Dave Pell: However great they might be, social networks could be making us less social.
And the Real Real Social Network!
One thought on “What to Read Today: American Jobs, Google, Nokia & un-Social Networks”
Om, I agree with Dave Pell in that social networks are making us become less social. We chase thousands of people online but we tend to forget about thsoe who are the most important in our lives; our wives;our husbands and our children.
