Facebook as collaboration on the cheap?

With all the new social media tools out there, you might wonder if I could use stuff like Ning or even Facebook for business.  Well I guess if Twitter could be for business…, Chris Brogan thinks Facebook might just be the ticket…
Chris Brogan: What if you had a completely turnkey solution for managing multi-threaded interactions with […]

Medical Technology - For the Patient

These last few months, I’ve spent a fair amount of time in medical facilities, mostly working preventive things (nothing scary here; not to worry). There’s been a big change in practice where I go and see my doctor: a whole lot of technology has been added to the workplace.
Instead of paper records, my medical history […]

The Cult of Innovation

You must innovate. Your company must innovate. If you don’t innovate, you will be gobbled up in the competitive global marketplace.
Um…maybe not.
Challenging this assumption is Dan Saffer in Business Week’s Outside Shot column (subscription required).
Innovation in and of itself, he contends, is a hollow mantra that will fail in the end because companies are simply […]

A Jet Blue Perspective

When I was enjoying myself in sunny Costa Rica on vacation, the United States East Coast enjoyed one of those great consecutive snow blowouts that snarled traffic, cancelled school, and created general havoc for everyone.

Yesterday, I provided a great example of a company that helped many workers Pimp their Work through the implementation of technology. While the focus of the post was on how the technology makes a group of individuals more effective and efficient, the whole idea of implementing company-wide technology begs the question of what it would […]

Technology can Pimp Your Work

Sometimes, it is not the individual tip or trick that needs to be done to Pimp Your Work. Sometimes, your company needs to step up and figure it out so that everyone benefits from a productivity increase — including the company.
UPS is one of those companies. Being rolled out over the last two years, UPS […]

Good and Great

There is an interesting saying out there: the enemy of great is good.
I don’t know about you, but I had a hard time with that saying for a long time. After all, there are few things that anyone can be great at, but quite a few things that each of us can be good at.

Have you tried EverNote for note taking?

I saw an article on Wired about EverNote today.  The author waxes poetic about the new beta and the creator Stephan Pachikov.  Of course I’m a sucker for beta software and something that is supposed to help me get and stay organized.  Now EverNote is like MSFT’s One Note, except a lot cheaper (like free […]

Scrybe gets more polished with ThoughtPad

Although I still don’t have an invite into Scrybe, I still watch for it in the news.  DownloadSquad reports that Scrybe has added a new feature to their already powerful lineup of tools.

If MindManager isn’t for you, maybe try Freemind for mindmapping

Liz Strauss has a guest post from Grigor Ćorić on mindmapping.  Grigor recommends FreeMind as an alternative to commercial mindmapping tools.  Okay, I’ve tried FreeMind and I didn’t like it. I was spoiled already by MindManager from MindJet.  Hobie Swan introduced me to MindManager and gave me a license to use.  MindJet is also one […]
