Fun with charts +Kevin Foster +Darin Brown 

I enjoy finding leadership lessons in unlikely places. In this case, it's director +Christopher Nolan on the latest Batman movie. It's important for a leader to let the team's talents show through and not obscure them:

"We want this to be the most exciting, emotionally engaging, and enjoyable blockbuster an audience can see this summer. I'm happy with it. It's the film I wanted to make. I look at what everyone has done, and I think they've done a good job. [Laughs] And I think I've done a good job of not obscuring it."

Running hundreds of business experiments as the way to get more from your organization's data. There's a lot of promise in this approach if you have an environment where it will work. The key upside is the ability to distinguish causation from mere correlation.
It didn't come up in my column on Amazon and the book industry (which quoted some of +Erik Brynjolfsson's other work), but this is why I really think Amazon is more likely to get book prices right the publishing industry: They have more data on customer behavior and more skill at using it.

Good primer on the Euro crisis.
Will the Euro have broken up by the end of January? The Economist reports: "In the last week of January, Italy must refinance more than €30 billion ($40 billion) of bonds. If the markets balk, and the ECB refuses to blink, the world’s third-biggest sovereign borrower could be pushed into default."

More on how college athletics is all-corrupting. I'm ready to move on to a world where college athletics no longer exists.
