Here’s a recap of news and notes from around the Web that caught my attention over the past week or so.
Tech entrepreneur Josh Linkler gives a quick lesson in how to Avoid the Complexity Trap.
“Anyone can make the simple complicated. Creativity is making the complicated simple.” —legendary jazz bassist Charles Mingus
Mark McDonald, Managing Partner Accenture, is always insightful in his blog. His recent post, The end matters when we all start in the same place, is no exception. Here is one of my favorite quotes to entice you to read it thoroughly:
“Digital is more of a market than a channel. There are distinct groups that choose to transact in the digital world instead of in traditional markets. Those groups are inaccessible unless you participate in the digital marketplace.”
Mark encourages us as we’re all at the starting line in the digital strategy race. You must get started and learn as you go. There is not prescribed winning path—it’s all about the learning. Kind of like life.
Apple’s biggest news today is in the plumbing. That is, the best feature of its newest IOS may be the behind-the-scenes elements that will greatly enhance the user experience.
