Things a little bird told me

I very much enjoyed Biz Stone's book and added it to my recommended reading list.

As the co-founder of Twitter Biz offers many great insights into not just social media rather humanity.

Here are some gems:

"...Twitter was and continues to be a triumph not of technology but of humanity."

"Opportunity is manufactured."

"Creativity is a renewable resource." "Do you treat your creativity like a fossil fuel - a limited resource that must be conserved - or have you harnessed the unending power of the sun?"

"The technology of Twitter didn't teach humans to flock. It exposed our latent ability to do so."

A fundamental belief of Biz Stone is that humans are first and technology is second. I agree.

I see many people being out smarted by smart technology. Don't be one of them. Reading this book will help you.

Be the difference you want to see in the world.
