Every day, I go through a mass of information gathered from the internets.
I use a number of aggregators and begin the day with a cup of coffee and, perhaps, a bowl of hot wheat cereal, and run through the stuff that shows up. Almost all of this I view in a snippet and capture the stuff that seems valuable and worthy of reflection by a fast push to Evernote, Kindle, Pocket, or some other place.
It is rare that I get the opportunity to go back and actually read, absorb, and reflect on them. You are probably the same but perhaps, in the asynchronous way we experience our world, you may get to these (below) earlier than I will and find applicable value in them.
As with all of us, there are some sites/people that we make sure not to miss. Among them, for me, is the frequently difficult yet always insightful (and inciteful) workessence posts.

The relationship between compensation and motivation, still, informing why we work.
The architecture of distribution. That is, containers being used as containers. And why are they building more?
I needed this refresher on regression analysis.
More on how work is changing and why I think my concept for the New Technical Workplace is the best emerging model.
I've liked the data-informed planning we've done recently. The collection of millions of pieces of information about how the workplace is used has helped get major initiatives formed, and then supported in the suit suite. But, there is also the feel, the good sense, about what the workplace ought to be that reduces the value of the collection of that data.
Is this Michael Wolf trying to best Mary Meeker?
Among the things you should learn from fashion is this about Miuccia Prada and her creative and cultural process.
I think the guiding generosity of the VC community, that is, the guidance offered to people with ideas and passion, is a good model for the rest of us.
The total disruption of television has been Apple's this week, but also Hollywood's.
Okay, that's enough for now. More later this weeked.
