Date a boy who travels →
I found this and had to share… It is soooo me! ———— Date A Boy Who Travels Date a boy who travels. Date a boy who treasures experience over toys, a hand-woven bracelet over a Rolex. Date the boy who scoffs when he hears the words, “vacation”, “all-inclusive”, or “resort”. Date a boy who travels because he’s not blinded by a single goal but enlivened by many. ...
Changing Cultures through stories →
How do we change a #culture when its a “complex system with a multitude of interrelated processes and mechanisms that keep it humming along”. In most organizations these mechanisms and elements develop unconsciously and organically to create a system that, while not always ideal, works. To change the culture is awkward, self-conscious, and complex. So how do we change it? Peer...

Awesome inspirational videos that take audio of Carl Sagan and overlay it with visuals. Some great messages in there too. I really agree we are facing a huge transitional period which is scary, exciting and powerful. “Better to embrace the hard truth than a reassuring fable”
The Rise of the Mobile Workforce [INFOGRAPHIC] →
The era of the 9-to-5 job is over. Even just a few years ago, you were expected to commute to work, put in your hours and drive back home. Once you left work, it was done until you came back into the office the next way. Thanks to laptops, smartphones, tablets and Wi-Fi, that has all changed. …

Social Media vs. Knowledge Management: A... →
A great article that examines the power struggle between Social Media and Knowledge Management within organisations. It explores how KM is a Boomer driven initiative that avoided complexity, whereas Social Media is driven by Gen Y / Millenials which is less concerned with the larger dynamics and carries on creating while being comfortable with complexity.
What happened to Knowledge Management?
Most firms make their first move with technology because it is more tangible and perceived as an easier option. However many experts and practitioners suggests that if an organisation spends more than one third of their time on technologies for KM, they tend to neglect the content, organisational culture and motivational aspects that make knowledge management systems useful.

Enterprise 2.0 is something that I have developed a strong interest in recent times. This linked article is a great overview of the benefits, challenges and thinking in this space.

David McCandless: The Beauty of Data Visualization. This should also be viewed with the other great TED talk in this arena. Hans Rosling’s - “The Best stats you’ve ever seen”.
