A Parable of Integration

Integration. That which connects, binds, bonds: businesses, people, machines, and networks. One of my great passions, and my main work passion. I really, really, absolutely love to work in the field of Integration

In a Twitter conversation with Wayne Horkan yesterday, I was once again inspired to write a blog post simply because one or two tweets wouldn't do it.

Measuring Individual value contribution to a Group

In a huge organisation or group, the first I do is trying to refind my individuality. I can only go with a group if I can measure my individual value contribution. Of course I love to go to great parties like Trance Energy and Mysteryland where tens of thousands of party people flock to, but those are not the groups I mean - although I do my best to contribute there as well by simply having fun, and smiling and dancing at will

Within Capgemini, the only company I ever was employed by, I did this too. I tried to contribute to the business unit I was in.

The Social Organisation Manifesto

Triggered by a conversation on Twitter between Christopher Carfi and David Armano, the former of who is joining the latter at Edelman, I was led to a blog post of Jon Lebkowsky which finally led me to David's post on the Social Business Manifesto

There. I read it, commented, and am now writing this - because it's still gnawing at me

I'm becoming self-employed

After finishing University with my Masters of Art degree in the pocket, I wandered around for a few months before joining Capgemini. That was over 13 years ago

Last Friday, I publicly announced that I'm becoming self-employed

Comparing Facebook influence to Twitter's: #FBRATE

In a previous post I did the math on Facebook Share, Facebook Like and Twitter ReTweets, and their ratio

I then did the math on probable Facebook users (which I found to be at half of what Facebook claims itself), and Twitter users, before calculating their relative ratio.
Update 12th October 2010 12:37 CET: I found out that only uses US data, not worldwide. It's in the small print whereas I'd think that should be in big red ink all over their site.
I apologise for this, it means that unique visitor stats below only apply to the US
Going by stats from Computerworld and Mashable there should now be around 20 million active Twitter users

Twitter stats - that just don't add up?

Business Insider posted Twitter stats last Friday that I missed because it was a national holiday. And I can tell you, it was well worth missing them, just as it is well worth pointing them out now. There are 33 graphs each telling their own story. Originally published by Edison research, it's a survey conducted among less than 2,000 Americans only

As you may or may not know, I'm a stats lover, a number cruncher, and I like to cross-examine pretty much everything
