Anthill’s Five Most Influential Posts

They were chosen for the way they influenced us (yes, Anthill) and, therefore, the way we report to you. Sure, it's a slightly narcissistic email but, in a strange way, our chosen five also seem to say a great deal about the changing nature of business in Australia. The five are presented in no particular order.

Michael Hewitt-Gleeson, School of Thinking

He worked with Edward De Bono teaching people to think, but Michael Hewitt-Gleeson has moved on from selling hats. He studied under George Gallup, but is now creating, rather than measuring, 'word of mouth'. He is a bestselling author, public speaker and 'paradigm-shifter'. This month, we honour Michael Hewitt-Gleeson as 'The Anthillian'.

The latest hot trend in social media: leaving it

It is perhaps inevitable then that the rise of social media has been accompanied by a counter-trend towards users abandoning it. Last year, when Twitter was the hot breakout platform, research revealed that 60% of Twitter users quit within the first month. Of course, that group was dominated by tyre-kickers, but it serves to demonstrate that people will only commit time to activities they think will return them a net benefit over time.

David Bussau: The economics of enough

David Bussau is all too familiar with the concepts of under-privilege, survival and dignity. He spent much of his childhood in a New Zealand boys' home, an experience that taught him the value of lateral thinking and risk-taking as a means of survival. But unlike many people born into a position of disadvantage, Bussau has been able to turn the tables, achieving the lofty status of self-made multi-millionaire by the age of 35 and changing the lives of countless individuals, families and communities in the process.

A holographic presentation technology that gets in your face (literally)

When it comes to physical products, there's nothing like seeing the real thing. This poses a problem for product developers, who begin with just a concept that usually requires the support of backers and believers to turn it into reality. Enter portable holographic imaging, which is designed primarily for architects but could prove equally useful for industrial designers, product manufacturers -- even event co-ordinators.

Procrastination anyone?

I've been procrastinating today -- though, technically, trawling for interesting web videos is part of my job description. Nevertheless, what a stroke of luck to stumble on a video homage to procrastination while procrastinating.

An embargo on PR embargoes (and all that)

This one will be unfamiliar to many readers, but sheesh it struck a chord with the Anthill editorial desk. PRs take note: the game has changed.

Romania eyes fast food tax to reverse national waistline inflation

Thomas Jefferson once said that “the price of freedom is eternal vigilance”. However, in the case of Romania’s post-communist population, the price is also size 52 trousers. In stark contrast to the lean Eastern Bloc days, half of Romania’s population is now overweight. Apparently, a burger, fries and jumbo soda became the cherished trophies of Cold War liberation.

The best three-minute video about leadership you will ever see

You might think you have a pretty good grasp on what makes an effective leader. You might even think you're pretty good at explaining it to others. But it's unlikely you can do a better job explaining it than this roughly shot three-minute video of a lone, shirtless guy dancing at a concert.

However, it’s likely that The Bard, had he lived in the 21st Century, would draw great inspiration from the brief and turbulent history of one of the world’s premier tech blogs, TechCrunch, and its founder Michael Arrington.
