As Melanie posted yesterdaycloudworker won the contest to replace telecommuter in the Plantronics contest. As you might know, that was my dog in the fight, so obviously I am pleased about winning. This is the beginning, not the end.But what I am really posting about is an exciting stealth nonprofit effort, being developed by an innovation/design company, WilsonCoLab, to do more with the cloudworker idea. I can't say much more right now, but their vision is very exciting, and of course, I am pretty pleased that the idea inspired somebody to actually do something interesting. I am helping them launch by donating most of the prizes I won ($1500 worth, of the $2000 grand prize bundle).So watch this space. It should be an interesting effort! And thanks all who voted. You can follow developments on the cloudworker front by keeping an eye on this page (where I am posting blogosphere reactions and additional details), or by following me on twitter.And p.s. -- the Social Media vs. Knowledge Management debate shows no signs of dying down, but I am probably not going to post more on that unless people REALLY want to hear more about that slugfest :)
The Business of Going DigitalDigital business isn't about changing code; it's about changing what legacy sales, distribution, customer service, and product groups do in the new digital age. It's about bringing big data analytics, mobile, social, marketing automation, cloud computing, and the app economy together to launch new products and services. We're seeing new titles in this digital revolution, new responsibilities, new business models, and major shifts in technology spending.
