I selected this article from Howard Rinegold's collection, which is full of great information and resources to help you navigate effectively and find relevant information and tune out the distraction and much more.

I'm continually researching to find ways to help others find their way through the maze and be more effective. I particularly liked what the author had to say:


This piece was written by Jan Brogan for The Boston Globe

Good stuff, thank you Howard for posting this today!
