Weekly Memo

At times, the search for new and exciting sources of content can seem never ending. I have spent more time clicking through Twitter than I care to admit. Although the process is tedious the problem is not a bad one to have. We live in a world that has almost too much (if that's possible) quality material streaming through the inter webs. It's dumb for me to think that I can rope it all in by myself. That's why I'd ask for you to share your favorite sites, Twitter feeds, articles, other email blasts etc. with me as you find them. The curation of this memo isn't a one man job (as you can see from the "h/t" below), and with your help I think we can make it something that people look forward to opening up every Friday morning.

Thanks and read on !
