Culture. That’s a fully loaded word, isn’t it? I mean, pretty much on the same level as the other two ‘Cs’: Collaboration and Community. I bet, when asked, we all have a definition for it. I suspect it’s also a different one for each and everyone of us. However, when thinking about Office Culture, there is a single keyword, … Continue reading Myth Busting – Office vs. Remote / Distributed Culture
I just can’t believe I have written the above as today’s blog post title. Really? Flickr? As last refuge? Is it still around? Do people use it? I don’t know about you folks, but I can confirm vast majority of my social networks from over the years don’t. They are nowhere to be seen in there … Continue reading Flickr – The Last Refuge
I am grateful LinkedIn has, finally, managed to open up my eyes and leave behind the lab rat race it’s become over the years. I am grateful it has pushed me over the edge and facilitated, for good, my return to this blog. It only took me 4 years to realise it’s no longer the … Continue reading How to Stop LinkedIn’s Toxic Algorithmic Manipulation
Over the course of the last few weeks a few folks have been asking me repeatedly why have I gone silent in Twitter for more than a year now without publishing a single tweet thus far. Back in the day, as I wrote multiple times over the years, it was my preferred social media platform by … Continue reading Twitter Is Where My Conversations Went to Die
In a previous blog post I covered the subtle differences between Remote and Distributed Work, and how we should be a bit more careful when using one or the other concept in order to avoid further trouble and potential confusion. They are not the same, but rather diametrically different! With that piece I also wanted to start … Continue reading Myth Busting – The Hybrid Workplace
Once upon a time, there was work. Then, the office. After that, remote work started to grab some more momentum by the day with the emergence of different technologies. From there onwards, distributed work became the new-normal before we could even blink! And, finally, all of that was followed by the hybrid workplace. Phew! What a ride, eh? I have … Continue reading Differences between Remote and Distributed Work – All about Power, Symbols and Rituals!
Over the course of the last few years I have been planting seeds all over the place. Usually, at other people’s gardens. It’s been a real treat, a true pleasure and an honour. I have always appreciated the opportunity to help amplify different conversations around topics I am very passionate about by sharing my two cents’ worth … Continue reading Shift Happens – The Future Office / Library in a Connected World
I have certainly had my fair share, to the point, perhaps, of bloating away with all of that infobesity, but that’s not the main reason why I have decided to come back and resume my blogging mojo. My good friend, Perry Timms, pretty much nailed it in a recent article (#disconnected) he published. To quote … Continue reading Have You Had Enough Mental Fast-food Yet?
We live in truly exceptional times, literally. There is not a single doubt about it. The current COVID-19 pandemic has changed our daily lives for good to the point where we know now we will never be the same again. No matter how much we may try to hide it all in that so-called new-normal. … Continue reading Distributed Work in Exceptional Times
Over the course of the last few weeks it’s become a bit of a challenge finding the time to focus and write my next blog post over here. Just like that, March is now gone and April is nearly half way through already. ‘We truly live in extraordinary times’ was a sentence I wrote ages … Continue reading Impact of Data Analytics in Today’s Digital Workplace
