Ideas of March
“ Permanence and findability are important for ideas to spread and grow. Twitter is a fragile and fleeting place. Give your ideas and thoughts the permanent home they deserve. ”
I'm embarrassed to call this an idea, but on the theme of blogs there's still a major issue that's simple to address but surprisingly widespread. Make sure your blog posts and other web documents are clearly, visibly date-stamped! It's so important, especially for information which dates quickly (which our industry is basically built on) that I'm stunned to still constantly run into posts or articles which don't feature this information. Playing forensic investigator based on clues found in text shouldn't be necessary if this simple and important piece of information is included prominently.
