Two Links and a PSA

Am hanging out at the Centre for Social  Innovation today, getting work done for meetings at 3:00, 5:00 and 5:30. Found some links that may interest you to read.

I would say with some confidence that every person who works in an arts organization is overworked to some degree. I present you a link from Stepcase Lifehack – How to Manage a Staff That’s Overworked.

And of course we all know the times they are a changin’ over at Facebook – a link from Mashable on how isn’t just changing, but profoundly changing.

And of course, near and dear to my heart:
