This is the 25th edition of the Sunday Seven Weekly, a project I’ve seen as an opportunity to share some of the fine work I come across in my internet travels, and to recognize many of the creators of that work.
Before hitting the publish button on that first edition I wrote down a goal to evaluate this series in 6 months. Having reached that milestone, I have made my evaluation and taken into consideration many factors, not the least of which is time.
For good, bad or indifference, I hereby announce that next week’s edition will be the final in this series of roundups. I won’t bore you with the many things that went into this decision, but let me simply say that I am rolling out a new project very shortly and timing could not be better.
While I have completely enjoyed producing this series and interacting with the many people who are a part of it, I am more than certain that my new project will be at least as much fun. You can look for an announcement on that in the very near future.
So, without further delay let’s move on to this week’s highlighted stops.
In found this article quite interesting, gave me some ideas and you may generate a few as well.
LinkedIn has grown big time, and if you’re not cultivating a profile there you’re falling behind. They were at the 85 million member mark in October 2010 and have now added 15 million more? That’s awesome growth and a unlimited potential for opportunities and exposure.
This post by Arik Hansen was quite enlightening to me, seeing how I was unaware of Posterous Groups. Perhaps this can help you with a project or make you a star at your corporate gig.
Ahh, this post goes right to the heart of what I’ve been talking about lately. Getting rid of the dead weight and how it interacts with many other elements of your life.
This video (8:21) shows a very simple and inexpensive “Studio” setup for recording pro quality video. Great tip by Gideo Shalwick!
In this podcast (14:08) Sid Savara interviews Ali Luke and Thursday Bram who share how they got started and where they are now, among other tips and inspiration.
Lastly, we all know how tough it is to make it in business on or off line. It takes courage and a certain daring spirit. But in today’s world we have technology to help us along, we simply need to be bold enough to want to succeed.
As you’ll see in this video (14:34) from my favorite vault, TED.com, stuntman Steve Truglia takes these bold and couragous moves for a living. This is a pretty facinating and entertaining piece that I thought you’d enjoy.
Until next post, my peeps.
