Dear Gord, thanks for the article on Search, Transactive Memory and the Plastic Mind. I will read it to my wife tonight, line by line, to finally win the 7-years battle which is about why I constantly ask "where?" questions: "Honey, did you see my wallet? Where is the cork screw? Did you recently use the digital camera?" Read more...

When I made my travel plans for visiting my business partners in middle Finland, I didn't expect to be witness of a very special ceremony, under the patronage of the old change management gurus Peter Senge and Arie de Geus (Peter sent a video message, the living legend Arie was present).

Ok, in Berlin you can rent bicycles with mobile phones; at airports you can buy into wireless networks being billed on your mobile's account. But that's about it. more...

Happy New Year. I am back, after a long winter holiday and I plan to resume blogging in the frequency and quality as I have been doing before.

Over here in Europe, more and more people bet on Obama because they believe that time for change in America is overdue. There is too much unfinished business in the US that Clinton - as a part of the establishment - cannot tackle (Iraq, environment, health and tax reforms, economy). More...
