One thing I love about the Internet today is the sheer volume of great content floating around.

Certainly there is plenty of junk, but ever since reading Groundswell back in 2008 (still one of the best reads for our industry, in my opinion), I’ve been obsessed with analyzing the incredible shift we’re all experiencing from a social technographics perspective. As technology advances and social media continues to embed into mainstream communication habits, we’re witnessing a surge in quality content creation. To help you sift through the significant amount of great creative content being generated on a weekly…daily…hourly basis, I’ve included a few items from last week that caught my eye.

Enjoy and feel free to add any other relevant good reads, views or other solid discoveries in the comments below.
