Nick Wilson has used Yahoo! Pipes to consolidate content from a select group of individuals which he hand picked and describes as his "personal A list". That's an interesting thought.

Ben McConnell & Jackie Huba
Charlene Li & Josh Bernoff
Jackie Huba from Church of the Customer spoke at our Boston office last Friday. And who is that darling next to Jackie? Why none other than our very own Lori Magno. Big props to Jeff Flemmings, our fearless Account Planner lead for roping Jackie in and getting a boatload of books for Digitas employees to devour. Smart, smart, smart move. And iMedia connection did a big piece on the book recently. Good for Ben and Jackie!
