Face to Face

David Sifry, founder of Technorati and Offbeat Guides, talks about building international businesses. Two quick points: you need to find great local people you can trust, and you need to make sure they are properly connected and can execute. How do you do this? There are no exceptions: you have to go there. Wherever there is. You have to go spend time with people. Face to face.

American Productivity

Report: U.S. Workers Are Most Productive: "Only part of the U.S. productivity growth, which has outpaced that of many other developed economies, can be explained by the longer hours Americans are putting in, the ILO said. The U.S., according to the report, also beats all 27 nations in the European Union, Japan and Switzerland in the amount of wealth created per hour of work -- a second key measure of productivity." -- AP

Cool. I'm not at all surprised by this. Here's the original study from the International Labour Office. I'll have to read it in detail. I'm sure there are many interesting bits in there.
