I love quick weeks, especially ones that are cut up with the opening of the NFL season and a weekend chock-full-o football this weekend. Hopefully you get a chance to enjoy the games and have a great weekend. So without further ramblings, here is this week’s edition of Five for Friday.
Internet Trolls Vote to Send Taylor Swift to Perform at School for the Deaf – on one hand, this is funny, on the other it is wrong to laugh.

Nickelodeon: A Quick Case Study in Social Business – I like Michael Brito and the work he does to bring more of awareness to social business. In this quick case study, he highlights how Nickelodeon made an organizational move to clarify their stance on some controversial and lewd remarks from one of their actors – good read for the parents out there.
