Although the title says it’s about retaining people, it’s also about hiring people, and “changing the story of the company”. Very interesting read, on how to stir things up the good way! It also touches on some bad things to do for innovation.
At the moment I’m working on a project to get some requirements clear for a new product. I’ve seen lists going around which bear great similarity with the ones showed here, but the story behind these is much better. Good way to get the long focussed.
Well written article on the current state of research on swarm intelligence. I’ve seen a lot about this research in the past, but this article shows some new interesting examples about ants, bees and caribous. The practical examples are not so new.
Interview with Tim Berners-Lee, of course about the semantic web. Funny how he steers around the questions about a web 2.0, 3.0 or 4.0, as he says: ” I think about real technology. I didn’t invent the term “Web 3.0.” The Web is constantly developing.”
