Transduction – leading transformation – Issue #77

The last couple of weeks I’ve written what I thought were quite good little pieces for LinkedIn, but they’ve had relatively little traction. You live by the algorithm and die by the algorithm, I guess!

I’ve found it a tricky balance, because without the ‘boost’, you aren’t talking to many people, but to get the boost you generally have to compromise, but it’s funny how the popular ones are often those I least expect.

It would be really helpful if you could let me know what you’d be interested to see from me.

I’m sorry I don’t have more time to do a bit of curation here – and the backlog of Interesting Things I have lined up – but things are particularly hectic at the moment. One day!
