LinkedIn Collects Long-Form Posts About Big Ideas for 2013

LinkedIn published a collection of more than 50 essays about the big ideas that will shape 2013, including a number of authors and literary-focused pieces. We’ve collected links to our five favorites below.

Earlier this year, LinkedIn enabled a number of “thought leaders” to create longer posts on the social network, building a collection of short essays from writers and industry leaders.  Here’s more from the post:

We decided to harness that wisdom by polling the thought leaders, and the results were impressive. Industry heavyweights in finance, medicine, education, non-profit, media and more replied enthusiastically to this challenge: What one issue, innovation or event will change the world in 2013? What’s the “big idea” you’ll be betting on?  Over the next year, we’ll ask thought leaders to use LinkedIn to weigh in on a number of other timely and relevant topics, so stay tuned for more online cocktail parties like this one. Let us know in the comments here and in each post, What’s your big idea?
