Here's what I think most of us are missing: It's the Internet of THINGS. Machines and devices connecting to other machines and devices. And that will work just fine until you bring human beings into the picture.

"Collaboration" is not a mechanistic concept, it involves intent, mutual purpose, acceptance, flexibility,...

Chris, apparently you're being way too logical for retail operators. Those who most need to heed your advice aren't prepared for it. This is a spiritual issue, not a statistical one. It's not a matter of mathematically weighing pros and cons of smartphone/tablet use and coming up with the...

No, right now anonymity is not possible. Using face recognition and GPS location in a cell phone we can track down data on a total stranger walking by. As one article put it, this is the stalker's dream come true.

Privacy and security can come only by design of the...

Absolutely they are, IF they follow Hartman-style advice. Hopefully we're far past the old days of the hot dogs condemned to spin on those roller things for days on end.

Having said that, I'm not inclined (short of being near starvation) to buy a plastic-wrapped sandwich that came from goodness...

The common approach to cyber security is like treating symptoms without getting to the heart of the problem. This is a little self-serving because I'm working in this space, but IMHO until we accept the real possibility of fault-free software, privacy and security will escape us. You might be...

It can go a lot further for sure. I'm working on a project called "City Possibilities" which is...

As an organizational psychologist, when I hear one executive promoting massive growth and another promoting a surgical/small steps strategy I start getting my proposal for a consulting intervention ready.

For success in Canada based on what I read here, I'd go with Mr. Meyer and the surgical strategy. The big...

Let's see ...

China—Trust. Trust—China. For most people one of these words is not like the other. An oxymoron perhaps.

Alibaba seems committed to breaking that proven stereotype and I'd love to see them do it. Given the prominence and visibility of Alibaba, Mr. Tsia has his work cut out for...

Mr. Blake had me at "Energy." It's ALWAYS about the energy. Every circumstance we face is always about the energy.

Back in theology school I was taught that a good sermon had three points and a poem to finish it up. The poem is missing but this is a darn...
