A deep future approach to KM

We're familiar with the near-term portion of the time spectrum—from femtosecond lasers used in eye surgery to high-frequency trading in milliseconds on the major securities exchanges. Unfortunately, the extreme opposite end of the time spectrum, the "deep future" receives little if any attention. Decisions in fields such as genetic engineering, nuclear energy, geopolitics and the like can have serious implications for human civilization. But the impact of those decisions might not become apparent for many thousands of years and hundreds of generations.Read More >>

Digitally Transforming in a Regulated Industry: How You Can and Why You Should

No organization is exempt from the increasing pressure to innovate and digitally transform its processes. The taxi industry, for example, learned this the hard way.Ridesharing startup apps like Uber and Lyft rose up seemingly overnight, flouting any regulations while state and local governments rushed to create them. The regulations did eventually come for the apps, but it was too late for taxis - consumer behavior was the changed for good. Now, urban-dwellers want to order rides from their phones and skip the manual payment process altogether, something taxis never were and still aren't equipped to offer. July 12, 2018
