Book List: Dennis Carey
As HR manager in my company, I certainly do need to be informed about new ideas and concepts that are practiced in the corporate industry. I think it is important to be aware of the trends in recruitment and management strategies because obviously, these are important issues in my job.
I read up frequently on management and recruitment strategies and there are books that prove to be helpful guides in my profession. Dennis Carey is an author I've found particularly insightful and his co-authors as well. The following are some links I suggest reviewing for anyone with interest in executive level matters (CEOs, board of directors, board compensation, director recruitment, corporate leadership, etc).

Strange title, I know. But I'm consulting on monetization and user-generated content optimization for a prom dresses site that's being redeveloped and which is going to include a daily updated blog. Part of the concern was how best to monetize the blog as the rest of the site has its own monetization plan based on its structure.
So, I was searching for other prom related blogs to see if anyone in that space was already hitting a homerun. Part of that search turned up a prom scholarship contest, which coincidentally is for a school with a San Diego location, and I remembered what great potential there is for promoting and monetizing through contests and scholarships.
Learning how to use digg.com as a story submitter and digger of great stories is truly akin to being awash in the good, the bad, and the ugly of web content. With thousands of stories submitted daily, while learning how to participate in a productive manner, you are sure to really see it all.
You'll see stories so lacking in quality that you'll wonder why anyone read them let alone submit them, you'll see complete spam submitted by nefarious types attempting to game digg, and finally you'll see countless awesome and interesting pieces all comprised of different components which lead them to super-popularity status on digg (hitting the front-page).
