“Inspiration arrives at surprising times, but it prefers to find you working,” Picasso reportedly said. As someone who aspires to develop my self and my skills, and to make the world a better, more just place, I like to think about working in many different ways. One of the ways I’m thinking about work is […]

What I’m working on this month

Wed, 08 Mar 2017 08:01:11 +0000

I love a good log book. “Captain’s log, Star Date…” Etc. I’m big into keeping a journal, I have been for the past couple years, and I review month and year old entries each day. A log is great for context, history, accountability, self-awareness, and more. In that spirit, I thought I’d start a new […]

A Networked View of Value and Cost

Sun, 05 Mar 2017 07:28:01 +0000

We’re entering into a networked age where the value created by single organizations is being surpassed by the value created by networks, and humanity’s participation in networks is giving each of us a new opportunity to engage in something bigger than ourselves, like a global brain. Those were among my favorite take-aways from futurist Ross […]

When you hear the phrase “influencer marketing” – a consumer product example comes to mind, doesn’t it? It’s a kid on Instagram, being paid to post a photo of a pair of shoes, or some such thing. Well…that’s not the only game in town. In fact, it may not be the best game in town, over […]

Source based vs keyword based social listening

Mon, 13 Feb 2017 16:18:14 +0000

Almost all social listening is done based on keywords, but as a former journalist that broke a lot of news stories by listening first to the right people online, no matter what words they happened to use, I can tell you that keyword based listening is not the whole opportunity. That’s what we do in […]

The challenge and opportunity of Extelligence

Mon, 13 Feb 2017 03:38:58 +0000

Being human is hard.  It’s complicated, at least if you want to do it well, I think.  Now picture the amount of data available to us exploding in the next few years.  Most of that data will be processed for us by machines, but the sheer number of analytical conclusions the machines offer us will be overwhelming, […]

The future of the world will be impacted in major ways by big data and artificial intelligence.  That much is undeniable, right? But how is data accessed and how does AI make connections and recommendations between technologies, data sets, and users?  Through something called an API, or Application Programming Interface. APIs are already big but they’re […]

Overzealous surveillance puts innovation at risk

Tue, 01 Dec 2015 16:26:16 +0000

The FBI has been demanding web browsing, cell location and other data from technology providers, without a warrant, for over a decade, it was demonstrated this week with a court ruling that ungagged a National Security Letter delivered to an internet service provider.  Techmeme coverage roundup here.

Wed, 25 Nov 2015 01:55:53 +0000

“It is now very clear to me, that the world of L&D [Learning and Development] is splitting in two. “There are those who think that the old ways of training are still valid and sufficient for today’s workforce, and there are those who realise that the world has moved on and a new approach to […]

What the world will be like in 2020 (extrapolation)

Thu, 08 Oct 2015 14:54:54 +0000

In 5 years (2020), we’ll each be sharing 32 times as much data as we are today (“Zuckerberg’s Law” Sharing doubles per person each year), and each computer will be 8 times more powerful than it is today (Moore’s Law: computing power doubles every 18 months).  Those computers will be processing that data in networked […]
