I’ll start this recap with a strong recommendation to start reading (and writing if you’re so inclined and have something worth writing about) on Medium, the hot blogger/tumblr-type platform that’s really snazzy and pleasant to use. Of course, you can sign up for your own daily digests selecting tags, people, and publications, but I also like to do the “reading roulette” on the web (great name btw).
This is a great place to read posts by insiders on how the sauce is made, or just about what people think -with some flair- when doing their job and going about the daily grind.
My day’s selection on digital marketing, design, and content:
- An excellent UX recap for starting off 2017 right – so much more then UX if you ask me!
- What design sprints are good for
- What We Learned From Our First Year on Medium (in Context on brands’ storytelling)
- ReadThink by Hubspot
The ever-inspiring daily updates, news, and quote from the MIT Technology Review: The Download. Read through and through. I cannot begin to link to all the good gems and reads I find in there, but here’s a quote worth noting from the December 8 edition.
And last but far from least: the Nieman Lab Daily Digest from Harvard’s namesake foundation. Just a fantastically curated reading list, every day! Two reads worth your time now (in my humble opinion of course!):
- Reuters built its own algorithmic prediction tool to help it spot (and verify) breaking news on Twitter
- Journalists and Trump voters live in separate online bubbles, MIT analysis shows
Ok, this is very close-to-home selection at this point, so I will come up with new selections from the wider web.
