Below are six simple things for your enjoyment.

  1. A hauntingly beautiful article about transformations in work and life that also includes the finest use—ever, in the history of the English language—of the word uroboric: “The Mysterious Metamorphosis of Chuck Close.”
  2. We should all be chasing our own version of “that split second when someone tastes something so delicious that their conversation suddenly derails and they blurt out something guttural like they stubbed their toe.”
  3. For a nice, clear distinction between “network effects” and “data network effects,” read (at least the first half) of this blog post from VC Matt Turck (@mattturck).
  4. We support the Louisville Story Program's We Can Hear You Just Fine, an anthology of "memoirs and oral histories by seven authors from the Kentucky School for the Blind."
  5. Last week we facilitated #ISEDchat, a weekly twitter chat of independent school educators and leaders. Here are some of our favorite exchanges.
  6. Zach Yanes, our research assistant for Blending Leadership, recently won the James Charlton Knox Prize from Amherst College; as we said in our acknowledgments, keep an eye on this guy.  
Thanks for your support and please feel free to forward this on to a colleague or friend! And remember, Blending Leadership: Six Simple Beliefs for Leading Online and Off is now available!
