Six Links Worthy Of Your Attention #366

Is there one link, story, picture or thought that you saw online this week that you think somebody you know must see?

My friends: Alistair Croll (Solve for InterestingTilt the WindmillHBS; chair of StrataStartupfestPandemonio, and ResolveTO; Author of Lean Analytics and some other books), Hugh McGuire (PressBooks, LibriVox, iambik and co-author of Book: A Futurist's Manifesto) and I decided that every week the three of us are going to share one link for one another (for a total of six links) that each individual feels the other person "must see".

Check out these six links that we're recommending to one another: 

  • How to Make $80,000 Per Month on the Apple App Store - Johnny Lin - Medium. "Nigerian spammers intentionally put words like ' Nigeria' in their scam emails, hoping to scare off all but the most gullible, because that way when someone replies they're very likely to send money to a scammer. Well, that mentality seems to have leaked into the App Store lately, and this explanation of predatory app developers is as disheartening as Mitch's link is feel-good." (Alistair for Hugh).
  • De Blauwe Tas - Ikea - YouTube. "Don't mind me; there's just something in my eye." (Alistair for Mitch).
  • Stupendous intelligence of honey badgers - The Times Literary Supplement. "I choose this article for its title alone. It's nasty!" (Hugh for Alistair).
  • Prog Rock - The Music Genre That Won't Die - Longreads. "Hair + Jazz + Metal = Prog Rock. Listen up!" (Hugh for Mitch).
  • A New Kind of Tech Job Emphasizes Skills, Not a College Degree - The New York Times. "I did one semester of college and dropped out. I was busy publishing music magazines, and I felt like I was better at the media business than I was at school. I've become, somewhat, known for saying that I never let school get in the way of my education. I probably lifted that line from somebody (and, if that someone is reading this, I apologize). Still, there is a shift afoot. What if that degree is valued less and less for better and more impressive vocations? How does that dent our world (once again)?" (Mitch for Alistair).
  • Nowhere Mag - New Republic. "Monocle - the magazine - is a thing of beauty. Do you read it or just put it on a coffee table. The answer is not so obvious. This is a great profile on the magazine's founder, but it's a better read if you're interested in how to build and deliver on a brand promise. Fascinating." (Mitch for Hugh).

Feel free to share these links and add your picks on Twitter, Facebook, in the comments below or wherever you play.
