A couple of days back, I am sure you would still remember how I put together a tongue-in-cheek (Coming from my Hippie 2.0 side) blog post where I shared a couple of thoughts on the Top 10 Reasons to Ban Social Media in the Organisations that Jane Hart shared over at her blog coming from … Continue reading 10 Reasons NOT to Ban Social Media In Organisations – The Meme
Oh, dear, it looks like the Hippie 2.0 side of me wanted to stir the pot some more and come about before the usual blog post later on in the week. I guess there are times where you bump into a couple of links here and there that surely make you think about things twice … Continue reading Top 10 Reasons to Ban Social Media in the Organisation! — Really?
I am sure you would all agree with me that both TED Talk and TEDx videos are just terrific means of being wowed over and over again on multiple different topics.
