As communication via email continues to decline in my world or work, so do the number of email subscriptions. In fact, I take great pleasure in unsubscribing from email lists … it’s almost cathartic!

The DO Lectures have a newsletter that puts the subscriber first. Kindling is simple, elegant and integrates across to Twitter and Instapaper – so when something looks interesting and you wish to ‘Read Later‘, you just click the button. For each article it also gives you a ‘time commitment‘ so you know what you’re in for. This is one newsletter that I will not be unsubscribing from!

The aim is to spread the knowledge as much and as far as possible. My feeling is that knowledge needs to be shared. Ideas need oxygen. Good ideas spread quickly. Great ideas spread even faster. I believe in ideas.DAVID HIEATT
