I Believe in the Importance of Personal Knowledge Management

Tom Spiglanin

Today we can find virtually anything we need to know on the Internet, whenever we need it, from wherever we are. But how do we sort through all this information, effectively filter content, judge the good from bad, and make sense of it all?

Learning and the Changing Workplace – Part 2

Tom Spiglanin

The changes aren’t being driven by executive decree, new approaches, or demands from workers. They’re looking to decommission their behind-the-firewall server farms, applications, services, and platforms by migrating to more cost-effective cloud-based infrastructures that are also “elastic,” able to be expanded and contracted as needed. This will in turn affect the way workers interact, and the nature and structure of workplace networks will change as well.
