Should You Move Your Email To The Cloud?

This will change everything in workplace IT support from designing workplace information strategies for collaboration, to delivering content experiences to people across channels, to engaging the next-generation workforce to serve customers better. I would imagine that the email is more of the barrier than other forms of collaboration. In Europe there is much less movement as these countries are more concerned about issues such as privacy.

What is Collaboration?

John Tropea - Delicious Collaboration

Almost all the fossil fuel energy we use today was formed between 200M and 400M years ago — it’s almost meaningless to try to figure out how much we consume compared to how much new fossil energy is being “created” each year. Therefore, change will be forced on the USA.

What will be the harvest of excessive self-interest and lack of willingness to take responsibility for making changes? Much of our energy comes from fossil fuels formed in the Carbonaceous Era 300,000,000 years ago; but in the last 100 years, the world population has used half of the planet’s oil stores. In Europe, gasoline costs about $7 per gallon because they accept a higher tax to “discourage” wanton consumption.

Preparing for Estonia

Chris Corrigan

First, this is only the second trip to Europe I have made since I left the UK in 1981 after living there for three years. It’s interesting to see how things have changed in Europe over 30 years. The essence of the film was that Estonian culture, language and tradition formed the basis for a slow and patient awakening of cultural sovereignty and pride that led to mass meetings and gatherings, and the singing of traditional songs of affection for the nation.

Is inequality the new exclusion?

Neighbourhoods

In the late 1990s and early 2000s, ‘social exclusion’ was, rightly in my view, a major political issue in the UK and the theme under which a good deal of positive social change came about. Social exclusion as a principle theme of policy emerged from long-standing debates in Europe about poverty in the 1980s, which mattered because they expanded to include other forms of exclusion.
