"Organizations change people but don’t change shape"
Part of my interview with +Emanuele Quintarelli for the Future of [Collaborative] Enterprise project
So right now the organization is trying to keep up with the change that people are leading in their external life. The thing is that this is not happening because the organizations don’t see enough value and because organizations are … Continue reading →

NEW POST: What's the dark side of the Collaborative Economy?  

I've been slowly working on this list for a few weeks, and documented at least 16 points.  It's worth reading, as a counter-point to the market drivers (you'll find the links in my post).

I wanted to take a look at both the upsides and downsides of the market I'm covering, to give it a fair look, before corporations deploy.

Graffiti alley at night. As part of my ongoing coverage of the Collaborative Economy (read all the posts) it's important we explore all facets of this disruptive trend to corporations not just upsides, but the downsides. I also see that marketplace friction is a sign of disruption as power ...

From +Mike Loukides in email: "On train to NYC. Ad says "Almax's mannequins use facial recognition software to glean customer demographic data and shopping patterns.  Looking for breakthrough ways to know your audience? businessweek.com/piercing"

"Scary thought. They're all watching you."

David Brin's Transparent Society is looking more and more like the best roadmap to the surveillance future.  We can't stop the surveillance; the best we can do is make sure that we know who is watching, and are able to watch them back.
To collect marketing data, a high-tech mannequin acts as a spy-cam on customers

Today is my 30th birthday, so I'm writing this letter to Google

I'm going to put all the jokes about my youth coming to a close aside and talk about something that I usually don't ever speak of. The wave of technology in the past couple decades has been amazing. I used a lite brite as a kid. Now 3 year olds are using iPads. We've reached whole new levels but have somehow managed to ignore people with disabilities who could really benefit from these advancements. I know we all want to create things for recreation, but how about helping some people out along the way.

Hearing disabilities are rarely ever talked about and if you watched that deaf girl hear for the first time on youtube about a year ago, you'd think that deafness had been cured once and for all. Less than 1% of hearing impaired people in the U .S. could even benefit from the type of surgery she received, a procedure which even then costs $100,000 and is not covered by insurance. The rest have a different type of deafness or disability. Hearing impairment is not just for old people and in the 23 years since I got my first pair of hearing aids, the technology has barely changed at all. The cost hasn't changed either. I am blessed to have many other advantages in life and I barely consider this one to be a disability, but having watched the rest of the world transform from the Flinstones to the Jetsons, I can't help but wonder if it's almost too late for progress to start being made. How can an ear microphone seriously cost 5 grand?

If I had to make one request for a birthday present this year, it'd be for Google to announce an initiative to tackle this problem. If they can make Google Glass for $1,500 and talk about making it cheaper, then surely they can make affordable hearing aids and upgrade the tech by 20 years. Today I am 30, but a part of me has felt 80 years old since I was 7. 

People say your message can get heard on Google+. I'm curious to see if that's true.
