For readers of Outliers or The Wisdom of Crowds -- or internationally bestselling author Richard Koch's many followers -- this entertaining book draws on the latest in network science research to show how any of us can increase the chances of success in our personal and work lives. What's so special about the rich and famous? Unusually successful people often think they've done well because of their talent or luck -- or simple grit and hard work. But individual characteristics matter far less than the social connections we exploit. And counterintuitively, it's our weak links -- your neighbour's landscaper or that ad agency guy you happened to meet at your sister's birthday party last year -- that matter most of all. Drawing on research from the fields of sociology, math, and physics, internationally bestselling author and entrepreneur Richard Koch and his co-author Greg Lockwood show how networks impact our everyday lives. Rich with entertaining anecdotes and written in Richard Koch's trademark conversational style, Superconnect reveals the hidden patterns behind everyday events. Most importantly, it shows how any of us can increase the chances of happy outcomes in our own lives, careers, or businesses.

The Advanced Metallization Conference (AMC) marked its twentieth anniversary in 2003. Technical leaders from around the world gather to discuss developments in the areas of interconnect performance, advanced metallization, low-dielectric constant materials, barrier metallization, atomic layer deposition, vertical integration, advanced packaging and optical interconnects. In particular, presentations highlight both the advances and future challenges associated with multilevel interconnect. The latest developments in the integration of copper-based metallization with low-dielectric constant materials, and advances in the understanding of copper morphology and the reliability of the component materials of interconnect systems, are featured. Additional contributions discuss the development of advanced materials and advanced process technologies. Optimization of interconnect performance and density, and alternatives to metal-based interconnect, are addressed in papers on interconnect performance issues, vertical integration and system-in-a-package versus system-on-a-chip.

Abandon the networking-for-networking's-sake mentality in favor of a more powerful and effective approach to creating and enhancing connections. STOP NETWORKING. Seriously, stop doing it. Now. It is time to ditch the old networking-for networking's-sake mentality in favor of a more powerful and effective approach to creating and enhancing connections. In Superconnector, Scott Gerber and Ryan Paugh reveal a new category of professionals born out of the social media era: highly valuable community-builders who make things happen through their keen understanding and utilization of social capital. Superconnectors understand the power of relationship-building, problem-solve by connecting the dots at high levels, and purposefully cause different worlds and communities to interact with the intention of creating mutual value. How can you become a Superconnector? Gerber and Paugh share instructive anecdotes from a who's who roster of high achievers, revealing how to systematically manage a professional community and maximize its value. Of utmost importance is practicing Habitual Generosity, acting on the knowledge that your greatest returns come when you least expect them, and that by putting others' needs first the good karma will flow back to you tenfold. Gerber and Paugh also explore winning strategies such as The Art of Selectivity, a well-honed ability to define which relationships matter most for you and decide how you will maintain them over time. Full of helpful advice on how to communicate with anyone about anything, Google-proof your reputation, and much more, Superconnector is a must-read for those seeking personal and business success.
