Here's to the third to a half of the world's population that are introverts.

Two great pieces about introverts from the past couple of weeks. Always makes me think of Business of Software!

Sacha Chua on introverts and how to be shy effectively.


Susan Cain, talking at this year's TED Conference in Long Beach on the power of introverts.

Three take aways from Susan's talk.

  • Stop the madness for constant group work – we need to teach people how to work on their own.
  • Go to the wilderness – we could all benefit from unplugging and getting inside our own heads a bit more often.
  • Take a good luck at what’s inside your own suitcase and why you put it there. When you have watched the talk, it makes perfect sense!).

Don't forget, registration for BoS 2012 is open now. Hope to see you in Boston October 1st-3rd 2012.
