December 21, 2011

As the year is wrapping up, we took a few moments to scan what the Ideas Blog has churned out over the course of 2011. Amongst a variety of categories and topics, from Brainshark authors as well as guests and customers, we picked out a small handful that we thought would be good to put in front of you once again. These posts were chosen based on their popularity at the time of initial publication, relevance, how they fit into the major categories we know you love, and simply put, just how good they are.
