Deloitte is a company I monitor quite a bit. They're one of the few big B2B companies pushing the social media world forward.

India does present a lot of challenges for western companies, but it's also too big an opportunity to ignore. Any lessons learned from doing business there?
 
After a disastrous 2011, India has bounced back in 2012, but fundamental problems remain. The FT's James Fontanella-Khan and James Crabtree discuss why weak politicians, corruption and poor regulation remain the biggest obstacle to India's development. Watch our video: http://on.ft.com/zfjgHW

I remember when I was minoring in creative writing in college and one day it hit me - you don't have to be a great writer to sell books, you just have to tell a compelling story (it doesn't hurt to also be a great writer). I shared this epiphany with my "literature" professor and he looked at me like I was insane. Now, I get the same looks from high-level PR and Marketing folks when I explain the concept of Content Marketing or Thought Leadership. It's not about pushing products and services but telling a compelling story. I do see the shift coming with initiatives like Coca Cola's Content 2020 and others, but for me it can't happen fast enough.

Good article about investing in your employees' technical knowledge. It's written for ad agencies, but I think it's applicable to many b2b and b2c companies.
 
Forget buying your way to tech know-how. Goodby, Silverstein & Partners’ Allison Kent-Smith argues that agencies should focus on constant employee training to raise everyone’s digital game.

I always thought I would have been an engineer if I was any good at math. Yesterday I met Molly, who was really trying to inspire girls to become engineers but may have inspired me. Well, might be too late for that. Aviation Engineer Molly Hoppe Introduces Girls to Engineering

I was at DIA last week and went out the wrong exit and walked all the way out to the wrong economy parking lot. I was totally wishing I had this. Also, is there a way to set waypoints with Google maps? I would have marked my car when I arrived and navigated right back to it.

Never had anything but positive experiences with Discount Tire. They meet me out front, ask what I need and get it done. I don't know what more you could want from a tire shop. There's never any pressure or hard sell; they present the options and let me decide. Actually, they talked me out of a more expensive set of super-agressive offroad tires after I told them I drive 40 miles a day on the freeway. They sold me a set with much better highway manners, while still aggressive enough for the 3 or 4 offroad trips I do per year.

Seriously, I've eaten better from a microwave. The atmosphere is definitely a sight to see and you should go once. But come on, how hard is it to even make decent Mexican food. It's beans and rice for crying out loud, the cheapest stuff on earth. It's like they're trying to see how bad they can make it.

Most rib joints ruin the meat by way overcooking it. If you like sticky-sweet ribs that fall off the bone, stay home and put some in the crockpot with a bottle of KC Masterpiece. If you like your ribs to have a little chew left in them (the way they should be) and taste so smoky good, with or without sauce, try John's. The service is also awesome, they really go out of their way to make you feel welcome. In short, if you don't enjoy this place, I don't want to know you.
