I really like this presentation from Reed Hastings who is the CEO of Netflix. The presentation is all about the company culture that he tries to build and its dramatically different from many companies I have seen in operation. Read it here

The Mailbox iPhone app looks pretty interesting which I found via SwissMiss – I am interested to see the rearranging of emails and the delay till later/alarm concepts as this helps divide personal and work time up well.
