Whatever you think of this as a practical idea, it's a fascinating thought experiment. If you could bring a species back from extinction, which one?

This blog post made my day! I didn't know what a "supplier innovation program" was until I looked it up -- and now I understand a little bit more about how new products and services come to exist. But mostly, I love that this blogger found 5 talks that meant a lot to him and his job.

Loved Mashable's list of 4 TED Talks for journalists -- I added a 5th in comments. Agree with me?

News habit survey:

- In a day, how much time do you spend keeping yourself in the know? What's your process?
I read the Philadelphia Inquirer on paper every morning while having coffee with Neil, starting with the comics and working forward to the front page. Don't judge. I don't depend on the Inquirer at all for news-news but for their in-depth reports, neighborhood coverage and local columnists. After coffee I check my Twitter feed for breaking news (I follow a lot of journalists), plus a quick scan of Reddit. I close Twitter when I start my working day, and take defined breaks to look at it, or I would go insane. But I definitely assume that if news is important, it will reach me. Probably via +Ben Lillie .

- Which major or local newspapers, if any, do you read on a daily basis?
Philadelphia Inquirer, NYTimes via links, Guardian UK via links -- feel like I am there every day. Neil reads the NYTimes on his Kindle while I'm reading the Inky, and subscribes to the Boston Globe for the sports. So I consider that I read those papers too.

- Do you use blog/news-aggregator websites or apps? If so, which ones?
Do Twitter, Reddit and Metafilter count? And I use Facebook like an aggregator for nontraditional news sites such as Philaphilia and Rustwire -- sites that are consistent about posting to FB.

- If you use Twitter, do you keep it on in the background at work?
I would go insane.

- Do you subscribe to email newsletters from any news sources?
I get The Daily Beast, though it's getting so tacky lately. Tina Brown thinks we want a lot more celeb scandal and murder than we really do. All the other newsletters are from literary magazines and really useless for work.

- Which, if any, paper news subscriptions do you receive?
Oh god: Newsweek, Time, Wired, New Yorker, Bloomberg BusinessWeek, um, Bitch. They tend to end up in the bathroom where Neil and I leave particular articles open for each other helpfully.

- Do you think Google Reader is ugly?

Aside from how interesting this is as an experiment -- imagine the possibilities for quadraplegic people and those with neural issues.

Very solid advice!
I’ve attended hundreds of conferences and spoken at dozens of them over the years. While most people complain that they don’t get always the value they’d like from conferences, I
