So Thursday linkage was going to be a regular thing. But I’m late. And today is Saturday, which means it’s time for some belated Thursday links!
+ We live in a weird media world when this pastor can become a top search on Technorati. But I like learning from people who are running hard, and he has some good things to say here. “Don’t you think every mammoth concept was downright laughable until it was a reality? Inherent in any vision that has the possibility of really taking off is the possibility of really tanking, right?”
+ Seth Godin retells the story of how he promoted his book, Purple Cow. Seth consistently blows me away with his creativity. He seems to instinctively know how to connect with a group and say the exact thing they need to hear to inspire them to act. Take this ending to a Fast Company article about this book, for example: “If you want a copy of Seth’s new book for free, send $5 to cover shipping and handling and if there’s any left, he’ll send you one.” It just oozes cool. I don’t need you to buy this, but if you want to get in on something special, here’s your chance.
+ And finally, you’ve got to check out this Apple ad from the UK.
