  • Very interesting article pondering whether a network of small businesses can be more agile AND more effective than big companies.

    "In a recent conversation, Dale Dougherty mentioned that Detroit is suffering from a lack of jobs, but not of talent. Imagine what could happen to the city’s industry, he speculated, if a bunch of businesses along the lines of the one Bunnie describes, with the owner’s home on the top floor; his manufacturing shop on the second floor; and his retail shop on the ground floor. Instead of a few monolithic car companies, you’d have a mom & pop auto manufacturing network of companies."

  • It seems that working out how popular something is can be quite tricky. Stashing this post in case it's something I ever need to build.
