#FAV10 – My favorite reads & tweets of 2010 collected –

December 30 2010 I woke up early and decided that this day was a good day to look through my archives of 2010, just because I like to catch up with my own brain every once and a while. When going through the pile in my delicious, twitter favorites, most retweeted postings etcetera etcetera I found myself going through a second phase of filtering, and I thought it might make sense to share it on Twitter again. After 10 tweets, and receiving some great feedback, I thought it made sense to tag the tweets with #fav10 so people could easily tune in the stream later on, if they wanted to.

As it turns out it was a stream covering a wide variety of Customer related topics, like Customer Experience, Social CRM, Service Dominant Logic, Value Co-creation, Service Design, Innovation and a fair share of more general research. It contains blogposts, academic research papers, slideshare presentations, youtube video’s and whitepapers. In short: My 60+ favorites of 2010.

Just this morning I decided to put them all in a post, for my own reference and for yours. Please let me know which one you liked best and/or share yours in the comments. Enjoy!
