  2. Consumers don’t care about your strategy. It’s true. Just ask Kris Hoet.
  3. Some great advice from Olivier Blanchard this week, including “If a blogger says something negative about you, threaten to sue them. That usually shuts them up.”
  4. Who decides what is “influential”? Valeria Maltoni explains the process.
  5. Katie Chatfield shares a great, short film on design strategy. This 10 minute film will change the rest of your day.
