Microposting(s) for November 30th through December 1st

These my micropostings and bookmarks – November 30th through December 1st:

  • Archie Grand – Another in the never-ending series of notebook fetish posts…

    Promises a lot: oversewn, nice size, good paper. That said, the joke of the cover title will wear over time and the notebook offers little other than plain paper.

    At the date of posting the promised opening of the site hasn't happened, so I'm going to relegate this to the "promises much, delivers little" category.

    Still not seen anything to beat that Smythson 192 pages of featherlight paper – my beauty, my beauty!

  • dispatches – New magazine launch: "serious photojournalism" – ie photos, journalism on 'serious' topcis.

    Good to see that nice typography, design and imagery are still to the fore and that people still see a commercial opportunity in quality journals.

    One to watch.

  • The First-Time CEO’s Recession Survival Guide – Neat article of some helpful pointers to help any CEO through the dark times when your cash balance races market sentiment to hit the floor!

    My favourite is to imagine what your successor would do. Excellent thought. This is also relevant to serial 'change agents' who are forever helping to change and improve: how often to we manage our own businesses well enough?

    This is a more pithy variation on the 'eat your own dog-food'/follow your own advice maxims – in a rather scarey moment of advance schadenfreude!
