Much of my work is centered around the concept of inclusive growth. I have put together a reading list of some of the academic papers that have influenced my thinking, as it may be useful to others. If there’s something I need to read that isn’t on the list, please send me your recommendations! Providing a detailed explanation of inclusive growth or inclusive innovation is worthy of a long and detailed post.
I read a lot in my new gig as Chief Innovation Fellow, reports, studies, memos, that kind of thing. Despite this, I spend an hour or two every most weeknights reading popular books about innovation. I thought it might be useful to post a list of what books I’ve read since I’ve arrived. Over time, will add detailed thoughts about each book (right now, only cursory thoughts on a couple books). If there’s something missing from this list that you think I should read, please let me know!
With a lack of significant spending cuts or revenue increases in Ontario's 2015 budget, questions remain on the ability of the government to close an $8.5 billion budgetary hole over two years. Instead of front-loading austere budgetary measures and cruising to a balanced budget, the government has chosen to stay the course on the plan mapped out in Budget 2014.
Muck Rack makes it simple to find people, tweets, or articles that mention any name, keyword, company, hashtag etc. We've compiled this guide to help you make the most of your search.
Selecting a term
Start searching tweets, articles from media outlets, articles mentioned in tweets, journalists'
names, titles and bios with some suggested searches:
Companies or Topics (e.g. iPhone, Microsoft)
Phrases (e.g. "cloud computing") — use quotes to keep the terms together
Twitter handles (e.g. @username) — returns those who have mentioned or replied to
Names (e.g. "David Pogue")
Hashtags (e.g. #sxsw, #london2012)
Bio details (e.g. vegan, Olympics, father)
Muck Rack's Advanced Search allows for many boolean operators.
Find results that mention multiple specified terms, use AND or
+. For example, ensure each result contains both Elon Musk and Mark Zuckerberg by
searching Obama AND Romney or Obama + Romney.
Use the operators OR or , to broaden your search when you'd like either of
multiple terms to appear in results. (This is the default behavior of our search when no operators
are used.) For example, search for democrat OR republican to find results that refer to
Democrats and/or Republicans.
Use NOT or - to subtract results from your search. For
example, searching Disney will yield results about the Walt Disney Company as well as Walt Disney
World Resort. To exclude mentions of Disney World, search for Disney -World or Disney
When using one of these operators with a phrase, enclose it in quotation marks. For example, you can
find results about smartphones excluding Apple's iPhone 4S by searching smartphone -"iPhone
Exact case matching or punctuation
If you're searching for a brand name or keyword that relies on specific punctuation marks or capitalization, you can
find results that match your exact query by adding matchcase: before the keyword you're searching for, like matchcase:E*TRADE .
Use parentheses to separate multiple
boolean phrases. For example, to find journalists talking about having fun in Disney World or
Disneyland, search for ("disney world" OR disneyland) AND fun.
An asterisk can be used to search for any variation of a root word truncated by the asterisk. For example, searching for admin* will return results for administrator, administration, administer, administered, etc.
A near operator is an AND operator where you can control the distance between the words. You can vary the distance the near operation uses by adding a forward slash and number (between 0-99) such as strawberries NEAR/10 "whipped cream", which means the strawberries must exist within 10 words of "whipped cream".
