Thence and Now

IMO this is not necessarily bad; as long as it is helping us fight the true enemy -> and not a political enemy of the party in power.

This has the potential to be the "breadboard" for the current generation

Maybe, I am little too aspirational but the potential is enticing. :-)

Change management in the real world

I came across this diagram in a technical context but I think it is more general purpose than that. I think everything from presidential campaigns to entrepreneurship will fit this model.

Crowd-storming within your company

"Rebooting" or reinventing the company started with a daylong brainstorming session where we broke up into teams to talk about our best ideas. I was lucky enough to be in @Jack's group, where he first described a service that uses SMS to tell small groups what you are doing. We happened to be on top of the slide on the north end of South Park. It was sunny and brisk. We were eating Mexican food. His idea made us stop eating and start talking.

That paragraph is my favourite part from this blog post -> Of course the make up of the group had more to do than just the act of brain storming as a group. Of course, it needed funding by people with vision to last long enough to matter. (Btw, Twitter just raised 35mill in funding last week in this economy, so you bet it is around to stay).

I am just pointing out that this is a cool way to get your base excited if you are a company and your employees are wondering what's next.

Time to bring liberal arts back in vogue for undergraduate studies.

curiosity + talent + different baggage - what will the next generation do?

Time please stand still by aknacer

I was reading a love story on msnbc which curiously, is categorized as a "Tech and Gadgets" story. I was struck by how easy it was for these two young people to connect from across the world based on a share interest.

I should point out that they are both very talented; he cut his teeth on photoshop and she on GIMP. The tools aside, I think we are going to see more and more of this in the future. Young people collaborating with an ease and speed that was science fiction to a generation before them. The only difference is that unlike the earlier generation, these two are not going to stop and marvel at the ease of collaboration. They are going to keep building, creating, destroying, experimenting and pushing the boundaries faster than ever before :-)

I cannot wait for it to happen. Happy Valentine's day everyone.
