Creating a sustainable culture of design excellence is not easy. This piece from FastCo Design looks at why Samsung can't quite get it right when Apple can.  http://ow.ly/JbUYK But even Apple is facing challenges. What does that mean for other innovators?
Blame Steve Jobs Syndrome.

Remarkably frank assessment by Dean. It really paints a gloomy picture of the club, who are still playing with a lot of verve. I have to believe they can turn it around if they can get a system in, keep it, and get everyone behind it. Four managers in such a short time is nuts and no one, no matter who is on the pitch, can be expected to thrive in that environment.

A legendary footballer who's never short on getting attention does so for the right reasons by stripping on the pitch for the UN World Food program. Good job. #zlatan   #football   #UNWFP   #hunger  
The soccer superstar strips down in the name of hunger awareness.

A new, more honest face of tobacco? Perhaps Jeff could be the newest mascot for #marlboro  or #philipmorris  ? #jeffwecan

This wonderful piece looks at the role of boundaries in complexity and change. By looking at boundaries as fictions we might better help understand how to apply them better in reality, not just in idea http://ow.ly/J5wi9

Social ads and social media: If you're not paying for the product, you are the product. Beware the folly that may follow your 'like' or post as Tom Fishburne (literally) illustrates http://ow.ly/HaPAb #marketing
