Micro-Blogging is Good for Leadership, Good for Your Culture

Dan Pontefract

First of all, let’s discuss technology. I personally don’t care what tool, application or technology is being used to drive enterprise-wide micro-blogging, but it must be secure and ideally it’s behind the firewall. So what has this got to do with leadership and culture?

Reflections on ISPI 2010

Design and Technology, Sitting in a Tree…

Adaptive Path

One constant that has stood the test of time in new media/technology projects has been the tension between designers and developers. Sadly, I feel this issue stems less from process (although that can definitely exacerbate the situation) and more from a company’s culture and organizational approach. The seamless integration between design and technology is becoming increasingly vital to a product’s success.
