Why are people attracted to "list posts"?
I don't look very often now at lists of new tech. tools, since I know I will not be using any more than I am using. I outlined this in my last post.
Recently, I have seen links posted on Twitter with some anti-list sentiment. Check this one by @mbteach
I still think that for those who seek some ideas or inspiration the reading of list posts provides a starting, point, incentive and impetus to explore and think further.
I am particularly keen to gather ideas on leadership, well-being and innovations in learning.
Much of my twitter stream reflects this interest.
Some companies, like 12most even build their brand around this list concept.
