Weekly Roundup: Help Us Pick the Most Influential Post of 2012: Vote early and often
OK, if you’re like me you’re probably getting tired of the “Best of 2012” lists. But I hope you can handle just one more, especially because this is one list that you can influence.
A few weeks ago, I asked NextBillion’s regular contributors to nominate what they thought were the most influential posts of the year on NB. Some of these posts were among our most viewed and most commented/shared of the year, but not all them. Still, they all left a lasting impression in the way they questioned conventional wisdom, brought new business innovations to light, or for the distinct perspectives they offered.
Below you will find 15 nominees and a widget for voting, arranged in alphabetical order. Even if you see a post you know and found influential, I’d encourage you to check out all of them. Who knows, maybe your opinion will change. The voting system (found just below the links) only allows you to cast one vote per day, but you are free to vote multiple times – in fact, we encourage it. Voting will be open for two weeks, at which point we’ll name the top three winners for the year.
Here are the nominees:
The Most-Read Posts of December
And while we’re doing a bit of ranking, I’d like to recognize the most-read posts of December with our monthly awards, which are lovingly referred to as the NextBee’s.
Last month, NextBillion unveiled our shiny new blog, NextBillion Health Care, a much more specialized topical blog with laser focus on bringing medical access and better health outcomes for under-served people. Given the strong launch and excellent contributions right out of the gate, it’s not surprising that three of the most-read posts this month were from our new blog.
Congratulations to the winners:
The Data Collection Revolution: How Remote Monitoring Is Transforming Health Care Business By Mark Maples
Calvert Foundation’s ’Accessible, Reliable’ Road for Impact Investing: CEO Lisa Hall discusses options for engaging investors By Scott Anderson
