This "vintage" map of the Internet is absolutely insane:

Love the example of John Legere, T-Mobile’s CEO, joining a convo debating T-mobile vs. ATT and saying from his personal Twitter account: “@RamblingRooney bet @ATT’s CEO isn’t going to join the convo. Come join the #WirelessRevolution! #Uncarrier.”
Here’s a new—and daunting—challenge many companies face today: in an increasingly digital era, how do you keep client rants from turning into large-scale PR disasters?After all, rather than having to

How much could you have made on Wall Street this year if you started with $1k to invest? Apparently billions. Happy Monday. 
If you can send any article back in time to December 31, 2012, make it this one.

“The trouble with being in the rat race is that even if you win, you’re still a rat.”  <--Great article
Being busy used to make me feel important. It made me feel like the world needed me, like somehow I was more valuable or valid when busy.

Great article in +Entrepreneur . It's not about having 'yes men' around you so much as it is about removing people from your life who are consistently negative and are interfering with your ability to do your best work.
