When technology shifts occur slowly, dramatic changes in how we live take place. Electricity allowed us to work late at night as opposed to until sundown. But when technology changes are more rapid – we tend to force it to adapt to our defined norms – baby steps. [eventually this post will get to the […]

This talk is so right, but could it be so wrong at the same time?
…click through to see the video…
Just watch this, that’s all I have to say. Jason is so right about this topic. Here’s a few quotes to convince you.
“I’m going to talk about work, and why people can’t seem to get things done at work…”
“If you ask people the question, “where do you go when you really need to get something done?” you typically get three different types of answers; one is a kind of a place, a location or a room, another is a moving object, a third is a time…”
“The Train” < – That one caught my fancy, if you've ever talked to be about transit you know that one caught me…
"What you almost never hear people say is "the office""
"Managers and bosses will tell you the distractions at work are things like Facebook, Youtube…" "…and they'll go so far as to ban it…" "…what is this China?!"
"The real problem in the modern office is the M & Ms" < – Oh hell yeah, so very true.
"Manager's jobs are really to interrupt people…" "…they don't really do work so they have to interrupt you."
"You would never see a spontaneous meeting of employees, no, managers do that…"

Today Microsoft released a concept video about how they see the future of productivity is going to be. We would like to share the video with our readers. I am not sure what timeline they are talking about but I will expect most of what is shown to be available in 3-5 years. Some of […]

From time to time, we post videos from different vendors on their take about cloud marketplace. Below is a video of Okta CEO, Todd McKinnon, talking to two of their VCs Ben Horowitz (from Andreessen Horowitz) and David Weiden (from Khosla Ventures) about their take on where cloud is heading. While we take pride in […]

We were able to assemble a powerful cast of experts to give the rest of us advice on becoming a Social Business. But we did it with one catch. We asked these 9 experts to do it in under 60 seconds. Thank you Robert Lavigne for essentially doing all of the video, post production and […]

This is pretty cool. A minute and a half time lapse of a data center build out in Colorado. It’s kind of interesting, in a hardware hacker geek kind of way. (Cross-posted @ Composite Code)

Last week at OSCON 2011, Dell unveiled Dell OpenStack Cloud, its OpenStack based solution to go against the likes of IBM targeting both the enterprise and service provider markets. While talking about Dell’s attempts against the unified computing efforts by IBM, Cisco, HP and Oracle, I highlighted how Dell is taking a more “open” approach […]

I wanted to post these two keynotes from OSCON 2011. They really bring out the spirit of exploration, adventure, care, and doing things bigger than oneself. This is about doing things that go beyond the cat picture of the day. These presentations, well, I’ll let them speak for themselves. Absolutely great!

I was at OSCON 2011 for two days. Like last year, OpenStack was garnering the media attention this year too. I thought I should check out the other open source cloud platform (open core, to be precise), Eucalyptus Systems, and see how they are doing. I spoke with Brady Murray, Director of Alliances at Eucalyptus […]

The Cius is here. That makes two enterprise UC tablets: Cisco Cius and Avaya Desktop Video Device with the Flare Experience. First some clarifications and differences, then a few conclusions. These devices do not compete with each other. The Cisco Cius is for Cisco UC customers and the Avaya Desktop Video Device is for Avaya […]

The new next big thing is Telepresence robots. At least that’s what some people think. I think not. With any luck, telepresence robots are currently experiencing their peak in popularity. That probably isn’t the case – telepresence robots may become the perfect yardstick for ego measurement, but I seriously doubt they will positively impact productivity. […]

I’ve been wanting to get a write up done for WordPress on AWS, the fact that it is free for a year, since they’ve released the free-tier many months ago. Well I finally got around to it, however it isn’t a write up. I went ahead and put the work in to produce a video […]

In this post, I will briefly […]
