how far is Facebook's Myspace moment?
In recent times, Facebook has seemingly grown more and more concerned about the threat posed by Snapchat – so much so that they’ve introduced a range of Snapchat-like features in an effort to kee

Evolving lefts

Interesting read, but with a flaw. When it says: "Social democracy’s electoral decline – from Scotland to Poland – is rooted in its attachment to free-market economics, which it needs to deliver rising wealth and wellbeing for the broad mass of people"it is probably wrong
There is nothing wrong, from a leftist point of view, with free market economics, the very nature of which demands regulation (regulation defines free)
The issue is with neoliberalism, which is not economics, rather robber barons on steroids

The web and the truth

A really interesting post from +David Banks

Pointing, to me, to the need of a different #sense-making, and therefore of a different type of education, which will be long in the making

Also underlining how crucial new #responsibility in #politics is becoming and how, for the US, rethinking the "checks and balances" becomes of paramount importance for the structure of their democracy

cc: +John Kellden just keenly understood the sense-making need with this reading ...

cc: +Grizwald Grim +Joachim Stroh on "individual vs. collaborative sensemaking". Would argue there is no individual sense-making; and, making life more difficult for many, the collectives that use to allow us to engage in sense-making do not behave as before, do not behave as our intellectual wiring expect them to. So the web becomes a platform for #untruths - #institutional-evolution

Yes. A slightly new media landscape (distributed platforms) emerging out of a sufficient set of passages woven together into graphs and grids, at ever so slightly oblique angles, to the existing.

Politics as a market

Really counter-intuitive, but then ...

"This places voter-acquisition strategy, rather than making sure that voters are informed, at the center of the political process"

"Donald Trump seems to reject data out of pure hubris, but that is irrelevant. The effect of Trump decentralizing big data is, decidedly, democratic."

Why democracy is still needed ... in digital

A very good follow-up to the battle between Thiel and Gawker

The question, to my mind is what is the #limitoftrust and when should #regulation of some kind take over. Basically, at what point do we need to bring in some #checksandbalances in the corporate world to ensure it does not go agains basic liberties and principles

The other question, more complicated probably, is, to quote Jaron Lanier, why are we putting so many of our core assets (our data) out of our economy's books. A dumb answer would be because that would not suit the investors in the companies that are doing so ... the other part of the answer is that we still do not clearly see the value there is in our data

A shallow self?

“Personal density … is directly proportional to temporal bandwidth.”

Is this inescapable or just pointing to the need of new learning and developing strategies?

Automation, singularity and science fiction

Real-life is farther from automation than many would have us believe. Now, that does not mean that corporations will not use as much automation as they can for the sake of efficiency

I would argue than more, not less people, are needed to really benefit from technology's potential in a company. But of course, I do not have the data to prove that ...

Story
Tagline
Consulting for better ways of working
Introduction
Thanks for stopping by ...

I am a management consultant. I work with companies that want to leverage social or digital technologies to improve their ways : how they work, decide, engage and create.

Analysis
Defining the collaborative maturity of an organization, its readiness to adopt social technologies and its potential for value creation.

Understanding what platform (Google, Microsoft, SAP, IBM Connections, Jive, Salesforce, ...) better fits with the organization, its strategy, its ecosystem, its ways of working and above all its ambition.

Co-design
Leading an open and community based co-design program to leverage a given platform to build an Employee User Experience that acts as the starting point for the transformation that takes place after social technologies are adopted. An Employee User Experience encompasses ways of working, behaviours, UX, social processes, structures, intelligent profiles, social actions and social objects

Transformation
The Employee User Experience is only the beginning. The adoption of social technologies forces organizations to reinvent themselves. We work with the three core functions that are most profundly impacted, HR, IT and Communications, to expand their ways of working and their mission in their organization : social learning, collaborative assessment, dynamic learning professional paths, conversation strategies, Social Technology Center of Excellence, Community Manager and Curator roles, ...

Some tags I find acurate about me : dreamer, curious consultant, father, husband, European, Spanish, French, in love with New-York, Real Madrid fan, Azul, son of Lorca, science fiction reader, Tolkien admiror, democracy critic and hopeful, technology enthousiast. A friend called me a citizen of the world, and I would be proud to be called one


Bragging rights
Hopefully still ahead ... but three lovelly kids and an exceptional wife qualify here
