Sunday, June 07, 2015

A handful of splendid finds from around the worldwide web:

Twitter users have better ideas than people who don't use Twitter. "Twitter users and non-users generally submitted the same number of ideas. However, the ideas of Twitter users were rated significantly more positively by other employees and experts than the ideas of non-users." [MIT Sloan Management Review]

How to pose like a man. "I believe that this unconscious prejudice against women . . . is present in almost everyone, including in those of us who object to it the most vehemently." [The New York Times]

Barbie's new adjustable ankles mean that she can finally wear flats. "Thanks to her newly designed 'adjustable ankles,' Barbie can slip into some comfy shoes . . . suggesting that a girl can take over the world no matter what kind of shoes she's wearing." [US Weekly]

Target's CEO says they (almost) owe Amazon a thank you for teaching consumers to shop online. "A Target customer who shops both in-stores and at target.com shops three times more often that the average customer, generating three times more revenue and 2.5 times more profit." [Fortune]
