Time is becoming an increasingly precious and scarce commodity. At the same time, the role of knowledge in the economy is becoming increasingly important and thus arises a need for continuous education. Naturally, these two facts are in conflict. My goal is to help you reconcile that conflict by posting annotated links to best-of-the-Web business-related articles.
I have been reading from a long list of online sources of articles since late 1999, when I launched MBA Depot, a free resource for MBAs, entrepreneurs and managers. The problem I have found is that even my favorite sources produce quite a lot of material that isn’t really all that worthy of reading. Luckily for you, I read through all of them and reference just the ones that are worth your time to read. My core editorial rule is that an article is worth reading if it has one or more learning points and that it more or less timeless (e.g., you would benefit from reading it whether today or 10 years from now).
