What’s New Can Stay

Love this take on social media/technology companies from Seth Godin:

Racing to build your organization around the latest social network tool or graphics-rendering technology permits you to spend a lot of time learning the new system and skiing in the fresh powder of the unproven, but it might just distract you from the difficult work of telling the truth, looking people in the eye and making a difference.

I’m totally guilty of this—always chasing the shiny new object. I’ve left this page open in a tab on my browser for a couple weeks now, hoping it’ll sink in.
