This Focused Performance Weblog started life as a "business management blog" containing links and commentary related primarily to organizational effectiveness with a "Theory of Constraints" perspective, but is in the process of evolving towards primary content on interactive and mobile marketing. Think of it as about Focusing marketing messages for enhanced Performance. If you are on an archive page, current postings are found here.

Baseline - The Project Management Center -- A new (to me) Ziff-Davis web and paper magazine on project management. I've only had a chance to skim it, but it seems to be primarily focused on IT projects. Joel Spolsky (who brought my attention to it) has taken a closer look and likes what he sees. Comparing how Baseline and InformationWeek cover the same story...
"While the InformationWeek article is just a poor rewrite of bland warmed-over press releases and vague generalizations, the Baseline article is detailed, interesting, and specific. For example Baseline noticed that Delta's new information system crashed for two hours at the worst time possible: when I was in New Orleans trying to reschedule my flight home during last month's blizzard. InformationWeek didn't mention the outage. In fact the whole Baseline article looks like it was written by an investigative journalist. It's about time the industry press got its act together."
I've got it bookmarked, and will probably check it out some more. You might see some links to its articles here in the future.
