Poke the Box has created a wave of conversations online and off. Last week we shared examples of individuals who’ve “poked” in their lives. These examples encouraged us (and we hope you too) to keep seeking out parts of our lives that we need to experiment with, where we can initiate and where we can push ourselves harder.

This week we’d like to share a roundup of interviews and excerpts from the online and media world. Fast Company, Forbes, and a bevy of great bloggers talked to Seth about publishing and how the industry is changing, including why the Domino Project is doing things differently and how we’re poking.

Below are links to check out. We hope you enjoy.
