Welcome to The Cancer Bus, I’ll be your driver. Continue reading

For in the drizzle and gloom Mr. Pickles glowed. Indeed, he looked thrilled about the grand opening of the deli that bares his name. Mr. Pickles, I thought. How sadly anachronistic. He doubled over shaking his shoulders in mock mime laughter, a giant, grinning pickle encased in a sandwich board hawking hearty heroes. Continue reading

The Top #Nifty50 Women in Technology on Twitter for 2012 September 10, 2012 A year ago, the #Nifty50 honored 50 remarkable men andwomen on Twitter. This year, colleague Cheryl Burgess and I changed things up a bit, opening the award to nominations but focusing specifically on outstanding men and women who work for technology companies and are active on social media. These women are executives, thought leaders, bloggers, authors and role models for younger women with an interest in technology.

Reflecting on the holiday, I am in San Jose feeling like the lone Jewess transplanted from the place where I never knew there were people who had never SEEN a Jew and had never experienced antisemitism. And, as with all reflection, I took a look at a letter I'd written my stepson last year for his birthday. Please feel free to comment - it's vanity (as all is vanity and striving after wind...) but you'll get the point. I think he did, too. Happy New Year. Have a little food. Give someone a hug. Wise (up) Letter to you on... Continue reading

The delivery of software by the box being replaced with software by the drink, a drop at a time, and the economy based on an "end" of a project or the delivery of a "version" will sound like a dial tone to those born after 2000 - never heard it before. What does that spreadsheet look like if the platform must not operate with an OS but with browser-like shells to take what we need and leave what we don't. It's not how money is made today.

Allowing employee experts to speak instills confidence and loyalty. Many people leave their jobs because they feel their contributions go unnoticed and aren't appreciated.
