I post a lot of summaries on this blog of other people’s talks, blog posts, whitepapers, reports and books. See them at

I’m not trying to take credit for others’ work. I always include links to the originals. It’s simply that I’ve found the best way for me personally to understand something well is to copy, paste, summarize, and sometimes slice, dice and rehash too. In some cases, I may even have bastardized the sources into points the original authors never intended.  I hope they can forgive me. 

“Imitation is the sincerest form of flattery that mediocrity can pay to greatness.”

― Oscar Wilde


I typically only do it for resources I really like. For some, I may even create both an abridged version, and a shorter, more concise summary too.
