What a cutie. My girls make me ache with affection on a daily basis but grandchildren must take it to another level.

Great post Rob. Some of us would argue that the church started the rot with the fallacy that someone else is in charge!

"pretty good mind" - praise indeed! ;-) If you notice I didn't say "at their full capacity" but "to their full capacity" and I didn't remotely suggest this should be all of the time!

Great post Rob - and interesting comments. Matt - have we trained people not to think? http://bit.ly/3wEx3P Tom - do we really need the big stuff?

I guess it's about balance and it has been in the interests of commerce and the media to keep us off balance.

Glad the post resonated with you Jackie and I agree things are gradually getting easier. Though given that I first got involved in this stuff eight years ago I am way past the stage of expecting overnight change!

I agree totally about the need for education - and in fact this is what I spend a lot of my time doing. The reason for this post was that at the moment I tend to get to the people who are already interested on social media and what it can do for them but it is the line managers and HR and comms folks that need help. Even if they don't embrace social media themselves they will increasingly be managing people who do. Thanks for dropping by!

Wonderful film Rob. Thanks for drawing my attention to it.

Yep and the best way to communicate such complex and "unmanageable" risks is to use social tools within the firewall to discuss what is risky and why! Otherwise you could always have a meeting or send a memo ...... ;-)

I agree that this isn't easy Elliot but pretending it isn't happening or trying to ban it are two high risk strategies compared to working with it, learning about and helping people understand how to "do the right thing"

Yes one of the big bursts of activity on our forum was when BBC Technology was sold to Seimens. Loads of great, mostly well informed, conversations about TUPE, outsourcing, how to survive sort of stuff.

Great link Dan - thanks. I like the expert saying that most Facebook groups are ill informed and even the fact that the article refers to them as "readers".
