Interesting new IBM case study video profiling the University of Zürich’s use of IBM Connections
All truth passes through three stages.
First, it is ridiculed.

As technologies and methods advanced, workers in all industries became able to produce much more value in a shorter amount of time. You’d think this would […]
I’ve been very pleasantly surprised at how often we’ve used the GoPro Hero cameras that we’ve owned for the past three years, and whilst we’re not that active a family, there’s barely a week that goes by without some opportunity for capturing footage – cycling, hiking, skiing, sailing and the like. There are plans afoot […]
Don’t do it if you don’t enjoy it. Be visible – get out there and sell yourself. Choose your name wisely. You can’t run a business without taking risks. The first impression is everything. So is the second. Perfection is unattainable. The customer is always right, most of the time. Define your brand. Explore uncharted […]
