Your weekly dose of business insights with 10 articles, 1 video and 2 tools. Community, newsletters, neuroscience, music, fintech, event production and SEO are among the topics covered.
I like to call this post a look inside my brain, but it's almost a week old already...
Apparently, I'm sharing around 5 articles per day with our team and more than 10 articles per day with myself. But I'm trying to recover from this knowledge addiction and turn collection into creation.
Do you do this as well? Saving articles for later reading? What's your preferred tool? Pocket, Flipboard or Raindrop? I must confess I end up sending tons of articles to myself for later consumption 😳
As is my obsession these days, I've come across a number of awesome community and newsletter related resources. And just to keep things a balanced; music, neuroscience, synthetic media, FinTech and event production.

Community is dead, long live community!
