  2. RT @toptechtrends @sirexkathryn Talking about copia – @griffey and about blio #alamwttt#alamw10 – Take a look at bliocopia, I know I mentioned them in my Top Tech Trends notes, but these 2 things are probably the biggest changes we’ve seen to ebooks and how they work
  3. sad to hear so much focus on tools & not the service they provide or needs they meet #alamw10 – This isn’t a link, its one of my tweets but I think it’s so important I’m including it.

  5. stop judging yourself as “better” or “worse” than other people this post from The Confidence Guy blog is a response to Stop Lying Down with Dogs has some great thoughts too, including “…you need to stop judging yourself as “better” or “worse” than other people, which means you start thinking of yourself less, rather than thinking less of yourself.”
