Two days for the price of one

Dave Snowden

The post Two days for the price of one appeared first on Cognitive Edge. Today was one of those odd days that you get in international travel. I’m writing this from the lounge at San Francisco Airport having landed before I took off from Auckland some twelve hours ago and I’ll leave for Washington before I even got the airport to drop the hire car off. It doesn’t matter how many times I do it, the west-east transition over the international dateline is always confusing.

Cheap books on learning worth the price

Jay Cross

Today I paid my $9.99 and started devouring free books on Amazon Kindle Unlimited. I spend on average of $40 a month on hardcopy books, so this seems like a steal. Since I’m in the midst of writing a book on solo/DIY learning, I thought I might learn something from these freebies: 45 Elearning Tips and Tricks , by John Araiza.

What price freedom?

Euen Semple

What price freedom? Having social tools doesn''t guarantee change. There is nothing inevitable about it. Real change requires consistent changes in behavior and often manifesting those changes in behavior in public spaces takes considerable courage. All it takes to maintain a repressive national regime is to shoot the occasional blogger. All it takes to maintain control over your corporate messaging is to make dissent a sackable offence.

Gas Prices: Americans in deep water

Nine Shift

Americans are in deep water with no escape over high gas prices. America was building trains, the answer to both high gas prices and saving the environment. In the 2008 gas price crisis, people took to light rail and trains and big plans were made to build more light rail and trains. Oh, and getting there faster. But the Tea Party has stalled the building of new trains, even though train ridership continues to set records.

The price is currently $59.99, which could hardly be better, since Consumer Reports top-rates it over Canons, Brothers and HPs, and gives surveyed prices from $129 to $179 (both, oddly, at Walmart). This is far below Consumer Reports’ reported prices of $127 – $199 (both Walmart). The Email sent me to me to the page where I am writing this — and the price now is $59.99.

Prediction: High gas prices to further light rail ridership records

This week's prediction: increasing gas prices, expected to set records this spring, will lead to further light rail ridership records. .

Value based pricing is at the heart of the future of professional services

Trends in the Living Networks

In my first book Developing Knowledge-Based Client Relationships: The Future of Professional Services the final chapter was titled Value-Based Pricing: Implementing New Revenue Models. Pricing by value rather than time is clearly a central aspect to building true knowledge-based relationships, since knowledge should be measured by the value of its application rather than time spent by professionals. Value-based pricing is not always the best approach.

Moreover, significant demand for new drugs has allowed them to dramatically increase prices (remember, price is not set according to 'cost of production' but by 'willingness to pay').
