Inside #the5 Wednesday - juggling

Good morning, time for #the5 today

Video: Social Media and the Workplace - Explained by @  
Common Craft always does a wonderful job with their explanations. I would like to see them tackle this topic from the viewpoint of the worker inside the firewall. There is much greyness still in that arena that hopefully will get some resolution some day, sooner rather than later.

Job Search Jam Sessions: "a workforce with the right mix of skills" a new report by Fed Res Bank 
The Federal Reserve Bank of Boston just published this report. I haven't read the details just the summary and it looks to be worth the read. Let me know what you think as you read this too!

Check out the Zoetica Salon, a free community for npo's on @'s Facebook page 
Beth Kanter is hosting this free community for non-profits on her Facebook page. I like the idea and can potentially reuse it.

Why Face Time is So Important to Your Job Search  "Find ways to get out and meet people in person" 
LinkedIn makes it easy to keep up with someone around the world, 24 hours a day but nothing beats the value of face time.

Now Android Has Wireless Music Sync, So When Will Apple Follow? (GOOG, AAPL)  
And on the lighter side, music is a good release, good for refreshing the spirit. I'll need to explore this app with my Droid phone.

Is there a summary word for today? We move from a social media and the workforce, to a new report on the workforce, to  a free community on Facebook, to face time, to an app for music. Work force, face time, music... finding the right balance, juggling your priorities, managing your time... maybe juggling is the best one for today. I like the play aspects of it.

What have you learned that you can share?
