Link Love Monthly: Best of November 2009

So I’m thinking I might do a regular monthly post with links to some of the most interesting posts that I’ve read over the last 30 days – about social media in general, of course, but also about associations, systems thinking, community building, good case studies, tool tips, social media in other industries, whatever. Like all good bloggers, we read waaaaay more than we write and these kinds of posts are what inform our own writing here at SocialFishing. This might introduce you to some good blogs you might not be aware of too.

Please note this list is NOT the same as my “MUST READ” list, which I save in my Twitter favorites here. That list is much more about essential reading that will help people understand the fundamentals of what social media means for organizations. (You can subscribe to my favorites to get those in your Reader.) Think of the list below as more to do with serendipity, interesting stuff that might spark some thoughts or discussion. Dip in and out of these at will.
