The Saturday Summary – 10/8/2011

by Elmer Boutin on October 8, 2011

The passing of Steve Jobs certainly headlined the news this week. He’s been compared to Henry Ford and A. G. Bell. Certainly the impact of his vision will be with all of us for some time. The other big news this week was the potentially disappointing (depending on your perspective) news from the Apple iPhone announcement on Tuesday. Here are some of the articles which caught my eye during the week of October 3 – 8, 2011 covering topics such as leadership, marketing, SEO and more:



  • With the passing of Steve Jobs, Chris Brogan shares his thoughts that we all have limited time on this Earth to make an impact: The Time We’re Losing
  • Dr. Pete shares some interesting eye-tracking information on SEOmoz’s Daily SEO Blog. A picture is worth a thousand words, and a thousand looks in the SERPs from what I can see: Eye-Tracking Google SERPs – 5 Tales of Pizza
  • Grant Gross of IDG News tells us about a possible change to FCC subsidies for telephone service in rural areas of the US. It makes sense that they would push broadband as it’s needed much more these days. From PC World, FCC Chairman: End Telephone Subsidies, Build Broadband
  • Laura Juarez shares some insight on niche marketers who make the grade and surpass their mass-marketing counterparts on the L.E. Smith web site: Know Your Niche
  • Two more posts about Steve Jobs which I found to be quite excellent were The Steve Jobs I Knew by Walt Mossberg on All Things D and The Technological Legacy of Steve Jobs by Suzanne Fischer on The Henry Ford blog.
