Where I file and list all the good stuff for you:

- Latina's Magazine top 9 must-reads of 2012 here

- Cheryl Sandberg on Gender Stereotypes in the Workplace:

“We hold ourselves back in ways both big and small, by lacking self-confidence, by not raising our hands, and by pulling back when we should be leaning in,” Sandberg writes in the book, called “Lean In.” - via NYTimes

"As a woman becomes more successful, she is less liked, and as a man becomes more successful, he is more liked, and that starts with those T-shirts." She blasted managers who unconsciously reflect stereotypes when they judge women's performance, saying: "She's great at her job but she's just not as well liked by her peers," or: "She's a bit aggressive." via the Guardian

- I found this so interesting when I studied it for my Anthropology major - Drug Doses and the Gender Gap - via NYTimes

- Simply brilliant: "If you haven’t brought in someone with an understanding of basic marketing principles who simultaneously studies how new technologies are changing human behavior, then you are likely flying blind and will get caught up in the wrong metrics." Brian Solis, Without a social media strategy you are wasting your time

- ROI on Video? "Gangnam Style, the most-watched YouTube video ever, with more than one billion views, by K-pop sensation Psy, has generated $8 million revenue from YouTube" Via qz.comn

Though S&S has produced videos to promote its authors in the past, the venture with TurnHere represents a stronger and more formal commitment to using video to market authors. S&S will create videos for at least 40 authors, including Mary Higgins Clark, Kathy Reichs, Michael Roizen and Mehmet Oz, Jennifer Weiner and Zane.

HBO Yanks De La Hoya/Mayweather Fight Off Youtube
- HBO has requested that YouTube pull down footage of Saturday night's championship boxing match between Floyd Mayweather Jr. and Oscar De La Hoya, according to a Los Angeles Times report on Tuesday. A YouTube user had uploaded the broadcast from Las Vegas, originally shown live on HBO's pay-per-view channel, in a relatively high-quality format later that weekend. That was understandably problematic for HBO, which plans to show a rebroadcast of the match this coming Saturday.The video was removed from the legally embattled YouTube around 4 p.m. PDT on Monday, replaced with a notice that it had been pulled "due to a copyright complaint from Home Box Office Inc."
