Great article on how bank branches may have hit the tipping point (to oblivion) a few years ago...

Perfect... This one paragraph sums up what I'm hoping #overlap13  achieves in one tidy paragraph...

Michael Lopp on why we don’t really read things anymore: When I observe how I consume information, I’ve become increasingly aware of how little actual deep information I’m consuming. Each morning, I launch a series of tab groups (News, Nerds, Apple, Games, Hockey) in my browser, and as I read each of the front pages in these groups, I’m basically reading tweets — the short headlines that describe what occurred. Sometimes I’ll drill down on an art...

A while back I noticed that I personally wasn't getting enough "long though" content and started making a few changes. Unlike lots of people who, upon such realization, quit all social media, I actually started by switching my in-car listening from music and podcasts to audiobooks. I now get through 3-5 books a month just via that mechanism.

The next step I took was to carry a Kindle and, when faced with 5-10 minutes waiting for a meeting, etc, I read books instead of flipping through other stuff on my phone.

The net result is that I feel like I spend more time in content that expresses/explores "the long thought" while still staying engaged in social media and online at other points in the day.

Great post by Jevon...
We always glorify the struggle of the entrepreneur. Late nights, poor diet and little contact with friends. It's cliche because it is real but we gloss over just how big of a toll it really takes. Las...

Story
Introduction

For over a decade, whether working within my own organization or with clients and partners I’ve worked to help others discover, acknowledge and apply the greater knowledge that exists within their business. I do this through a mix of group & visual facilitation techniques as well as consulting services where I can apply my own personal experience in building and growing businesses and communities.

I’m passionate about Visual Thinking, Facilitation, Innovation, Photography & Sustainability. I consume information voraciously and actively take experiences and learnings from seemingly unrelated spaces and generate new ideas - I’m a synthesist & design thinker and happily sit in the “Creative Generalist” category.

Currently I'm helping form an Innovation Practice at BMO | Bank of Montreal.
