In effect as part of an innovation team, according to my own director, if I am not pissing off my mgmt at least a few times a month, I'm not doing my job. +Philip Auerswald really articulates this well! Hope to see more like this.

Stumbled across this after Googling "can you be a leader without being a manager" and it is rather succinct in its comparison. One thing I would add (pretty obvious to many of you I am sure) is that it is much more difficult to be and maintain a "leadership" role if you are not a manager...at least in current biz culture.
A leader is one who influences the behavior and work of others in group efforts towards achievement of specified goals in a given situation. On the other hand, manager can be a true manager only if he...

Just returned from shopping at our local co-op. Seeing more and more QR codes popping up on produce and fresh goods. Some of these codes will actually show the "heritage or journey" of your food, an increasingly important aspect of what we consume. Nice use of tech.

I know for many, it is iPad or noPad, but as one who doesn't own any Apple other than an iPod (which I actually do like), it is my hope to see some contenders that make the tablet space a place for more than just the iPad. The Toshiba Excite 10 LE looks like a formidable entry...time will tell, I guess. I confess I am a Toshiba fan from way back and actually was even intrigued by the Excite's clunky but feature-rich predecessor, the Thrive. Curious, with the increasing choices of tablets and particularly some of the latest entries, and notwithstanding iPad 3's "entering the room", what "non-iPad" tablets do you think have a chance of at least holding their own in this space? Some of you will perhaps say none, but I would hope to see at least a few possibilities.
Made available right before Apple's iPad 3 unveiling that takes place today (March 7th), the new Toshiba Excite 10 LE tablet is said to be the thinnest and lightest 10-inch tablet out now, measuri...

So, any takes on Google's Nexus 7 as a truly viable tablet or does one have to pay the price of an iPad for that luxury?

I've had mine for a couple of weeks now and I love it. Jelly bean is a huge leap forward over Gingerbread which is what my phone is running. I use it more than my laptop and the smaller size makes it extremely portable. Did I mention that I love it?

Although I am really liking Google Drive, they need to do some tuning. When sync is running, eats up a lot of processor usage. Apparently many are seeing this same performance hit. Short-term solution of turning off sync until you need it is acceptable for now, but definitely not a workable long-term solution. Keep working on this Google!

Certainly looks like Toshiba is trying to become a real player in the tablet market. Are they Thriving...should we be Excited...is 13 something to really get Excited about or just plain unlucky or akin to a clunky oversized shoe?

Social media is transcendental

Mind reading: We get to read the mind's of many by just lurking in an activity stream.
Remote viewing: Where else can you see images of San Francisco, New York, earth from space, solar flares, or a friend or loved one in a distant place from right where you are sitting.
Paranormal activity: I don't know about you, but I see and hear moving apparitions all the time, sometimes interacting with me sometimes not, never more than ten at a time though...not sure why.
Vibrational healing: Ah, feel the healing as that mobile device vibrates when another mind meld or remote view enters the ether (OK, I know that is a bit of a stretch).
