How enterprises are capitalizing on emerging technologies (with a little help from startups)

Gigaom

In a recent survey of global companies by Bain Consulting, fewer than 1 in 5 executives say their companies are “very effective” at breakthrough innovation. While enterprises have long struggled with innovation, emerging technologies have raised the stakes even higher. In virtually every industry challengers are leveraging mobile, social, big data, the cloud and other technologies to develop and bring disruptive new products to market. In addition to technology, lean startups are employing crowdsourcing, agile and other disruptive processes to accelerate and improve their odds of success.

With legacy systems, processes and even people, enterprises are finding it increasingly difficult to match the speed and innovativeness of startups. Faced with the rapid pace of emerging technologies and a growing gap in capability, enterprises are trying a number of different approaches to innovate and compete more effectively. Fueled by an ecosystem of investors, accelerators and advisors, startups represent a vital new…

What Do You Do When Someone Steals Your Content

Excellent Content Protection guide, well-structured and well worded with consistent and clear logic and flow

Lorelle on WordPress

Blog writing tips and articlesHaving been the target of copyright thieves, and working with writers, authors, and photographers on copyright protection and laws for over 25 years, I thought I’d talk a little about what to do when someone steals your content.

First, you noticed that I didn’t say “if” someone steals your content. That was on purpose. With the glut of information on the Internet, it’s now a matter of “when” not “if”.

The first step in learning about what you can do when someone steals your content is to know that it will happen, so the more prepared and informed you are, the better your chances of prevention and having a plan in place when they steal.

A Look Back on Content Theft

As the number of websites and blogs grow, especially splogs, the demand for content puts more pressure on website administrators, who may resort to stealing content in order…

Get ready for the coming employment roller coaster

For third and second worlders; first world companies usually start at overseas interests with all scaling and structuring activities.

Gigaom

We have a serious problem, a very, very serious problem and its related to how we recruit, hire, train, and retain employees for many modern and critical roles. Based on anecdotal evidence I believe we are rapidly approaching a point where 15-30 percent of our work force could be “worked” out of a job in any given eight to ten-year period.

That would mean up to 45 million Americans looking for replacement roles in any ten-year span. Yes, my numbers were developed anecdotally from previous experience in combination with information from the Bureau of Labor Statistics. As an example in 2002 there were roughly 15 million manufacturing roles. When you combine that with operations oriented IT or service oriented roles you can quickly come up to 45 million affected positions.

It gets worse, not better.

The first world has been lucky. We had the last 100 years to help folks…

RESEARCH BREAKTHROUGH – NEW ELEMENT DISCOVERED

A major research institution has recently announced the discovery of the heaviest chemical yet known to science.
This new element has been tentatively named "Governmentium."

Governmentium has one neutron, 12 assistant neutrons, 75 deputy neutrons,and 224 assistant deputy neutrons, giving it an atomic mass of 312.
These 312 particles are held together by forces called morons, which are surrounded by vast quantities of lepton-like particles called peons.

Since Governmentium has no electiotrons, it is inert.
However, it can be detected as it impedes every reaction with which it comes into contact.
A tiny amount of Governmentium causes one reaction to take over 4 days to complete when it would normally take less than a second.

Governmentium has a normal half-life of 4 years; it does not decay but instead, it undergoes a reorganization in which a portion of the assistant neutrons and deputy neutrons exchange places.
In fact, Governmentium’s mass will actually increase over time since each reorganization will cause more morons to become neutrons, forming isodopes.

This characteristic of moron-promotion leads some scientists to speculate that Governmentium is formed whenever morons reach a certain quantity in concentration.
This hypocritical quantity is referred to as "Critical Morass."
You will know it when you see it.

When catalyzed with money, Governmentium becomes Administratium, an element which radiates just as much energy since it has half as many peons but twice as many morons.
