Journals: 2 from MIT

Two really good Journals from MIT Press:

1- Innovations: Technology|Governance|Globalization
"Innovations is about creativity addressing societal concerns. It is about social entrepreneurs, inventors, public leaders—all whose innovations meet local needs and address global challenges. It is less about what needs to be done, and more about what people are doing."

(Click image to go to page, and click here to go to see the different issues including FREE ones)

2- Journal of Asynchronous Learning Networks:
"Our mission is to provide practitioners in online education with knowledge about the very best research in online learning."

(I have to admit I have mainly read abstracts from JALN, but they are still insightful)

Other Journals from MIT can be found here.

Remember that your local library might offer online access to most of these journals/articles through it's website.

The book is at times as enjoyable to read as a Malcolm Gladwell book, slows down a few chapters in but is nonetheless quite interesting.

You can also read the original article that spawned the book here:

Be that person that actually read the book being cited.

Interesting methods in deconstructing how thinking work.

Generally interesting, both in terms of the dynamics of the tech industry and the actions behind a turn-around plan.
