    [Blogging] The Big Shift in Business Models
    This is a big topic in its own right (and I’ll try to cover it another blog post), but just to end with a provocation: I don’t believe advertising based business models will be sustainable in the Big Shift. In the Big Shift , we are all experiencing mounting performance pressure. So, what is a business model? It’s ultimately all about money.

    [Blogging] sense-making with social media
    However, it is blogging, such as this post, that is by far my strongest form of learning, as it involves a number of things that are all supported by researched learning theory, and which improve memory and recall: Reflection.

    [Blogging] You can be inauthentic, but can you be authentic?
    appeared first on Joho the Blog I’ve always had a problem with the concept of authenticity. Authenticity is usually taken to mean that you are being who you truly are.
