Change Everything and Take Off - Looking at Linchpin by Seth Godin

Enjoying Seth’s “Linchpin” summary.

Seth Godin does not exactly have the reputation of writing How To books for dummies. And his latest book Linchpin: Are You Indispensable? (↑) — to be released on January 26, 2010 (audio book on February, 9) will not be an exception.

Let me talk a little bit about this amazing book. I also had the honor that Seth answered me a couple of questions about the book. All here in this blog post. Stay tuned.

FireFox Toolbars - Best Of Selection

It seems that I am in the mood of discovering more and more browser toolbars this month. Just recently I have recommended 3 browser toolbars, which are available for Firefox and Internet Explorer (IE).

Andy Beard says Google Toolbar Is Not Family Safe (↑) and removed it. Well, that might be true, simply don't let your Kids on your computer. There are many more areas of danger.

Today I have another 2 toolbars that I want to tell you about. Since I am using Firefox, I did not even check, if those or similar ones are available for IE.

Art Or Funny Advertising - What Do You Think?

I admit, I click the “Stumble! Button” every once in a while, and find some curious things from time to time.

Today, I came across the
Tallest Virtual Real Estate Building In The World

The thumbnail of this post shows it's base. My first associations were:
  • Is it Web Art or a form of Advertising?

  • Since you can rent a virtual apartment in this tower, it's more a form of advertising, but it certainly has some art-factor, too.

  • What do you think?

I have set up my Stumble Preferences that I get Web content related to my business as well as my hobbies, like photography.

For anybody that does not know what the “Stumble! Button” is:

The homepage of is the entry point to a large virtual community, whose members discover, comment and vote for Web pages. Currently there are 3,864,876 Stumblers.

The free StumbleUpon Toolbar for FireFox and Internet Explorer becomes your steering wheel for exploring sites other Stumblers liked. Channel surf the Internet with the StumbleUpon toolbar to find great websites, videos, photos and more based on your interests. StumbleUpon learns what you like and makes better recommendations every time you click the Stumble Button.

Blog Review in Rapid Paced Mode

Who is doing this “Rapid Paced Blogging Experiment” and the Blog reviews? It's a guy named Fank Carr at his (↑) Blog.

It's astonishing to watch him post more articles in a day than others write in one or two weeks or even one month. Frank has written on his About Page that his goal is to write at least 10 quality articles each day.

He is posting on a wide range of topics — from celebrity, offbeat-news, commentary on general topics to how-to articles and Internet of course, but he even can write well about philosophical concerns.

His articles and posts about the Internet caught my attention though somewhere. Now I remember, it was on Pat B. Doyle's (↑) Blog. Frank wrote a Blog review for her. That's how I found him.

I liked the review and because Frank is currently offering to write reviews, I contacted him. Not only are his reviews well structured and valuable, he writes them for free right now in order to promote his new Blog.
