The Innovators, Walter Isaacson's new book, tells the stories of the people who created modern computers. Women, who are now a minority in computer science, played an outsize role in that history.

Now here's a story you rarely hear -- all about the women mathematicians who created our modern computers.


This is a wonderful read, and a perfect way to end the week. As usual, women's contributions are off the radar screen. Yet it is inspiring to read how much they contributed to the creation of computers. These women were front-and-center, not help maidens. Who knew??!!


Read this fascinating story. And oh, BTW -- there are tons of these backstories laying around just waiting to be told. What fascinating backstories can you tell about your business and the people involved?


Happy Friday! Happy reading!

Studies show that four basic emotions combine to create our experiences. Here's what that means for the way content is shared online.

What a terrific summary article this is about emotions in marketing. It covers not only why emotions work, the author Courtney Seiter also talks about WHICH emotions get shared and why.


Seiter covers happiness, sadness, fear, plus anger and the types of reactions each creates. I also like the charts and graphics she uses to make her points. 


And what I think is really cool is how she shares recent research from IPA dataBANK who validated -- once again -- that pure emotional content wins out over a combination of rational and emotional.


So check out the article. It is well done. If you want to gain mastery over crafting stories with specific emotional content, then this post will bring a lot of clarity to your work.

Interessant artikel over waarom mensen dingen delen via internet. Zowel positieve als negatieve emoties kunnen zorgen voor het virale effect. De woede die Wilde Geert momenteel en regelmatig effectief oproept, helpt om zijn dubieuze boodschap verder te verspreiden. Daar komt waarschijnlijk ook het ontzag vandaan als mensen zeggen: "Hij durft het toch maar te zeggen'. Dat zijn mensen, Nederlanders, die hun verstand overslaan, de emotie gaat voor. MInder mensen dan maar? Dat is een heel ander pleidooi.

It is an interesting article with neuroscience research involved. It is about the emotional suggestions that our brain makes leading us to share on the Internet. The challenge might be is contributions become Technique and focused on being positive in a contrived way. What does it mean in education?
