[Manifesto] on Education by @LeadersSlovakia #NGLS

Hiya SCG-ers,

many of you were and are constantly pinging me, because you do miss shipments on #IS. I do admit that I have disappeared from online shipping for solid 4 months, but believe me it was all worth it. Before I will start to share all those life-changing moments and lessons I have learned ‘offline’; let me share with you (so far) the biggest shipment of my professional career: Manifesto on Education created by folks attending third NGLS Conference, which took place in April this year. It is also bit symbolic time as school are opening its gates for new term this week again, so perhaps this manifesto can inspire those who have guts to change something in their worlds. Enjoy!

Hey SCG,

I know that I still owe you book reviews from summer 2011, but before I will get there -> let me highlight for you yet another master piece written by our beloved Seth Godin -> few days back he has published via The Domino Project his new book called We Are All Weird.

Why Is R(SS)eading Good For You?

Hiya SCG,

lately there have been quite a buzz  about RSS feeds and its survival chances. Seth Godin is certainly in favor of RSS feeds, because as he said: RSS is quiet and fast and professional and largely hype-free. Mathew Ingram from GigaOM has elaborated on RSS fuzz with great post: “Sure, RSS Is Dead — Just Like the Web Is Dead“, which bottom line was: “The fact that RSS may be fading in terms of mainstream user awareness is actually a good thing rather than a bad one.” Fred Wilson dedicated two posts to RSS feeds; First one was about how RSS are not dead and then he continued with break down of traffic and RSS leads to his AVC blog. So,what has Inspiring Shipments (#IS) to say about RSS?

(Y)our Mediocre Work Affects Whole Country or Why Slovakia Needs to Wake Up Before It Is Too Late

Hiya SCG,

you might have noticed pretty modest amount of my shipping and insights this week. It was caused by very intensive 3 days, which moved me and transformed me again.

But briefly, I have turned down assignment and have given up couple of thousands Euro of income for next month, because I could not risk my name and credibility to deliver work, which is not top-notch. (requirement was to do it “just like that”…) [Read more…]
