Another note to myself:
Currently I have three books going at once. The Wisdom of Crowds: Why the Many Are Smarter Than the Few and How Collective Wisdom Shapes Business, Economies, Societies and Nations, Smart Mobs: The Next Social Revolution, and The Innovator’s Solution: Creating and Sustaining Successful Growth all recommended to me by Tom the Architect and all really interesting books — as a matter of fact, probably the most interesting stuff I’ve read this year.
The problem is, I’m over extending myself again on the reading and really need to get my act together and get to audible.com (also recommended by Tom the Architect) and get me some audio books for the iPod, since I have over an hour commute to work. A friend said he got through the audio book of The Innovator’s Dilemma pretty quickly using audio books. It took me a couple weeks of on and off reading.
So I’m going to try it out — eventually — and see if it increases the velocity of information getting into my head. Maybe I can clean up the reading queue and get some more books from my amazon wish list out of the queue as well.
