Have you ever wondered who the woman on LinkedIn's app is? +Carlos Riveroll and I have. Does she know she's there? Has she seen herself? And why did +LinkedIn make such an odd selection picking this photo? 

We know that if we all look for her, we can figure out who she is. Please help us find her by sharing this post. You can also follow us to get updates here: http://thelinkedinwoman.tumblr.com/

I think this is a very good book we should all read next.

"A highly perceptive manifesto for a world gone digital from the Vice President of Digital Sport at Nike and the founder of AKQA.

Digital technology is changing the way people do business in every way imaginable, and if there is anything worth knowing about how to use it to innovate and grow, Stefan Olander and Ajaz Ahmed know it. Between them they have invented some of the most influential and iconic work for many of the world's leading brands. Written as a conversation between the two men, this manifesto is charged with cutting-edge content and ideas and presents seven new laws all businesses need to know in order to thrive, including "Convenient Is the Enemy of Right," "It's Easier Done Than Said," and "Have a Purpose Larger Than Yourself." Highly thought-provoking and utterly engaging, this book will turn perceptions about digital technology upside-down and arm readers with the knowledge to leave competitors behind and to create a better, smarter, and more inspiring future."

Una reflexión en un día para crear conciencia y no necesariamente para "celebrar" con cursilería.

"The End of Ownership: Why Aren't Young People Buying More Houses?
When older generations wonder what's the matter with Millennials, they often judge their younger cohorts against such financial and social benchmarks as finding a job, getting married, and buying a home. These observations often come wrapped in weak science -- "blame Facebook for their indolence" -- or dripping with judgment -- "blame their parents for making them weak." The science is weak, but the observations are true. Fewer young people are finding jobs. Fewer young people are getting married. Fewer young people are buying homes."

The cost of a higher education may be the cause for a decline of people being able to afford a better life.
Interesting read. It invites us to think of how the financial system needs to change in order to make living something actually sustainable.

It's no wonder that in an environment that punishes the faithful, more young people are thinking month to month

Paul Krugman and a “treason never prospers” argument.
No, by definition -- the GOP's definition.

Who is an idiot, really? When anxiety plays a big role in your life, most of the times, you are an idiot. #psychology  
“I should define ‘idiot’ for our purposes. I don’t mean someone of low I.Q. or poor academic abilities. Intelligence as commonly conceived has nothing to do with it. By ‘idiot,’ I mean exactly...”

Yes, I know Summer just started and Fall seems far away but it's never a bad time to start making preserves. If you are like me, someone who have always wanted to make preserves but hasn't done any yet, this recipe is really simple. Let your inner cook out this weekend. :)

Advantages of bilingualism are more pivotal than being able to converse with a wider range of people. Rad read on The New York Times. #culture #science #anthropology
Being bilingual makes you smarter and can have a profound effect on your brain.

This is a long but very, very interesting read. After decades of thriving on the business of selling "Vitamin Toys" for boys, Lego spent the last four years and almost 1 billion dollars to launch a new toy with a strategic initiative that aims at girls.

Between learning how Lego overcame a financial crisis to grasping the cultural insights Lego got from running exhaustive anthropological studies, this is an article that leaves you with a better understanding of this business.

I find this topic very interesting. I decided to keep my last name after I got married, even when that happened here in the US. I frequently get inquiring looks and aggressive questioning as of why I decided to do that. Maybe it has a little to do with my culture: In Mexico it is used to keep your maiden last name and only add your husband's last name at the end. The family name then is commonly used as a compound name made from both last names: "Husband's Wife's Family". In reality, the reason why I kept my own maiden name after marriage is because it's an essential part of my identity. I have been "Samantha Jiménez" all my life. Nothing is more personal to me than my own name. Keeping my last name has nothing to do with my love or commitment to my husband.

There's a part of this article that makes me feel better about my decision:
"Brides with more education or a high-powered occupation were more likely to keep their names, as were older brides."

Maybe I'm not a super "high-powered professional" but everything I have achieved in life has been fun but also challenging, and I have put my all in it. Giving up my last name would be like giving up a part of me.

55.9% of women who marry in a non-religious ceremony decide to keep their maiden names after marriage. It's good to know I'm not the only one.

I found the perfect apartment and had an amazing experience while looking for it thanks to Michelle Albanese. She is kind and sweet, something great when you need patience and have lots of questions about what will be your future home. She also knows Austin like the palm of her hand, something that comes handy to get tips on where to eat and shop, but also which neighborhoods are better than others. Michelle had plenty of options based on our needs and she never replied back to our requirements with negatives but rather looked for better matches. The day we went to visit our short-listed options was a delight thanks to her friendliness and smart planning. To top all of this, she is very honest. She won't lie about the goods and bads of a place based on her personal interests. My husband and I loved working with her. We both look forward to working with Michelle again when buying a house and recommend her highly.
