Clark Quinn

And I’m not saying this to sell books (I’m unlikely to make more than enough to buy a couple of cups of coffee off the proceeds, given book contracts), but because I think the message is so important! So I’ve been pushing an L&D Revolution , and for good reasons.

What happens when Google buys Sprint too?

Doc Searls

For example, what if Google buys, builds or rents fat pipes out to Sprint cell sites, and either buys or builds its way into the content delivery network (CDN) business, competing with while also supplying Akamai, Limelight and Level3? I do know that just the thought of Google buying Sprint will fire up the lawyers and lobbyists for AT&T, Comcast and Verizon.

Should Apple buy Nokia?

When you’re as far behind as they are, there are two ways you can get back to the table: you can either run like crazy and try to iter­ate your prod­uct at light speed or you can buy your way back at the table. Mobile maps matter, and Apple now has the worst mapping you can get on a phone.

Stop creating, selling, and buying garbage!

Clark Quinn

Finally, the folks buying the learning are equally complicit. Again, they don’t know the important distinctions, so they’re told it’s soundly instructionally designed, and it looks professional, and they buy the cheapest that meets the criteria. I was thinking today (on my plod around the neighborhood) about how come we’re still seeing so much garbage elearning (and frankly, I had a stronger term in mind).

Why money won’t buy you happiness

Mind Hacks

It was originally titled ‘ Why money can’t buy you happiness ‘, but I’ve just realised that it would be more appropriately titled if I used a “won’t” rather than a “can’t” There’s a saying that people who think money can’t buy happiness don’t know where to shop. So, why don’t they, in short, spend their winnings in ways that buy happiness? Here’s my column for BBC Future from last week.

Buy Smart!

Clark Quinn

Someone is buying that fish! Where my thinking led me was to a ‘buy smart’ campaign. Don’t ask how my thoughts got here, but I was reflecting on the fact that the western economy is largely predicated on a free market (whether we truly achieve that is a different rant). Which, to work properly, needs consumers to be ‘optimizing’ That is, for the free market to drive improvements and fair prices, people have to vote effectively with their dollars.
