"Social Media for business: Why it matters to everyone", by Stephen Baker.
"The big points are that everyone needs social media, to learn, connect, respond, and be seen. I argue toward the end that a crucial skill in this changing world–and this might surprise some people–is good writing. Our words are our ambassadors."

An excellent essay on social media byis attached. Our ability to communicate is a critical 21st century skill. This is certainly true in mathematics as well. I always remind my students, "obtaining an answer is not our only goal, we must communicate to others how we solved the problem!" So often I receive assignments that are totally unreadable — answers magically circled somewhere in the middle of a sea of scratch calculations. Would your future project manager approve of that?
