More on SlideShare!
I think Slideshare is just a great knowledge and collaboration tool, getting better as time goes on.
This is eye opening, thanks Amy!

Our old technology — paper — gave us an idea of knowledge that said that knowledge comes from experts who are filtered, printed, and then it’s settled, because that’s how books work. Our new technology shows us we are complicit in knowing.

Nice short and to the point infographic.
Social Media Strategy in 8 steps – an infographic /@BerriePelser
This may be short and colourful, but it packs eight essential elements it's worth thinking about - hard!
This is downright spooky. It's an interactive infographic all about why your brain craves infographics. Food for thought!

Staying safe on social media isn't easy. Social networks want a LOT of your information. Here's a visual guide to what you can (and can't) post.
As an emerging leader in the digital age, connecting with people is also about being visible in the 'social media' milieu ~ here's a very helpful infographic about some of the potential dangers of being active in social media.
This is important for students who are just out there and, for that matter adults.
Extremely important to educate all about dangers to individual lives when posting personal information--especially vulnerable children.
Math and science are noble endeavors, but real leadership is taught in the arts. Here are four powerful lessons taught best by artists.

A massive survey of internet users reveals trends in social media usage across numerous platforms, ages, races, genders, population density and which social media sites do they frequently visit.
The Pew Research Center has released the results of a comprehensive social media survey, conducted over several years to evaluate which demographics were using social media, and on which platforms. Which social networking sites emerged on top?
Of the online adults surveyed at the end of 2012:
67% use Facebook
20% use LinkedIn
16% use Twitter
15% use Pinterest
13% use Instagram
6% use Tumblr
A decent amount of Americans appear to be using social media, but which demographics use social media in greater numbers?
It appears that women use social media 9% more than men do, at a whopping rate of 71%. Other frontrunners with the highest social network activity in their demographic include city dwellers(70%), Hispanics (72%) and adults with a household income below $30,000 annually (72%).
The most pervasive and consistent divider amongst social media users remains, unsurprisingly, their age. 83% of the young adult demographic (18-29 year olds) use social media, which is well over double the activity of online adults over 65 years old (32%).
How did I miss this one, Deb? Thanks for the scoop!!
An important corollary question is what do we use social media for?
Interesting but not surprising. I think the older the Gen X-, Gen Y, Millenials and Digital Natives grow, the higher the stats for all ages.
At London's LeWeb conference kicking off today there is much talk about the new consumer values: transparency participation and collaboration. The business of the future will do well to understand this movement.
In the past year, 52% of Americans have rented, borrowed, or shared things they used to own, and 83% of people are willing to do it, despite the $22 billion self-storage industry and homes that have doubled in size (and disillusioned their owners when equity evaporated).

Great list! And not just social media...
These might actually be the 12 "C's" fo life!
Excellent pointers for a creative presentation
A great list of C's
Young leaders often explain their aspirations in self-centered language. They focus on themselves and neglect others. Individual contributors are great, but leaders always connect and mobilize people.
Leadership is about others.
Virtually all talk of cognitive enhancement focuses exclusively on the enhancement of individual intelligence. But what about enhancing group intelligence?
As I read earlier today, "None of us is as smart as all of us." - Warren Bennis
Inteligencia del grupo, mejora y mentes amplidas (si hay mucho error de traducción, acepto el aviso).
La investigación a la que se refiere el post contradice la concepción intuitiva de que la inteligencia de las personas, cuando trabajan colaborativamente en un grupo, equivale a la adición del IQ de cada integrante del grupo. No es así. Fenómenos interesantes suceden cuando trabajamos en grupo.
One of the tags is ethical technology
I believe in empathy. I believe in the kind of empathy that is created through imagination and through intimate, personal relationships. I am a writer and a teacher, so much of my time is spent interpreting stories and connecting to other individuals. It is the urge to know more about ourselves and others that creates empathy. Through imagination and our desire for rapport, we transcend our limitations, freshen our eyes, and are able to look at ourselves and the world through a new and alternative lens.

It's 2013 folks - this cannot be allowed to continue...! Not the usual positive post but sometimes people change because of discomfort.
What ways can technology help here?
Some leaders are…different. They have this certain something that resonates with us, and that certain something may be hard to describe and will likely vary from person to person. They’re not perfect, but somehow that’s part of their charm. They possess the ability to motivate people, but it’s often not in the traditional ways.
Great leadership is collaborative and often the leader is not noticeable.
Connecting with people is important. When you are connecting with people deeply you can influence. People want to connect on a relational level.
